Design and implementation services leader utilizes Arteris’ silicon-proven networkon-
chip (NoC) technology to enable world-class performance for customers

SUNNYVALE, California – February 26, 2013 – Arteris, Inc., the inventor and only supplier of
silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced
that Socle Technology Corp. has licensed the Arteris® FlexNoC™ interconnect IP for its internal
technology platforms and will provide design and implementation services for high-end SoC
design customers.

Socle Technology, design affiliate of GLOBALFOUNDRIES, offers leading-edge design and
implementation services, enabling its customers to overcome obstacles in ultra-deep submicron
SoC design. Socle taped out its first 28nm ASIC design using GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 28nm
super low power technology (SLP) with Gate First High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) in 2012. The
Arteris FlexNoC fabric IP platform enables higher interconnect frequencies, solves routing
congestion and provides faster time-to-market for Socle’s customers.

“Our customers require the latest, most advanced technology and the Arteris FlexNoC
interconnect IP is a necessary addition to our portfolio,” said Stone Peng, president and CEO of
Socle Technology. “Acquiring the FlexNoC license strengthens our technology platform and
design services offerings, and provides our customers with more options to future-proof their
