Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect technology leader addresses design complexity for digital television systems-on-chip (SoCs).

Arteris Inc., a leading supplier of network-on-chip based (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that LG Electronics has selected its on-chip interconnect solutions for use in LG’s digital television (DTV) platforms.

Arteris NoC interconnect IP technology enables SoC designers to achieve lower power, higher memory bandwidth and optimized latencies by individual connections. This improves SoC performance, lowers SoC costs and enables rapid adoption of IPs communicating in a variety of protocols. The growing Arteris ecosystem provides connectivity to a variety of IPs and IP protocols as well as multiple EDA design flows. Use of the Arteris NoC IP simplifies the front-end design process while easing back-end routing congestion and timing closure issues.

The Arteris FlexNoC™ product offers ability to reduce the number of interconnect wires required for SoC design. Reducing the number of wires resolves routing congestion at the back-end place-and-route stage, resulting in shorter development cycle time, less SoC complexity, smaller SoC area and less SoC power.

Arteris’ FlexNoC allows us to address back-end design constraints through easy optimization at the front-end architectural level, which is critical in the highly integrated complex SoCs we require,” said Dae-hyeop Ko, Principal Research Engineer of LG Electronics.

LG’s adoption of Arteris FlexNoC is an important deployment of our commercial NoC solutions,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “This endorsement proves the ability of Arteris’ network-on-chip technology to provide significant benefits to silicon providers in the most demanding consumer entertainment markets.
