Innovative NoC Implementation Dramatically Speeds Derivative Design

The Inuitive team faced a significant challenge when developing a derivative design based on the NU4000, their first vision-on-chip processor. The NU4000 employs the Advanced eXtensible Interface (AXI) on-chip communication bus protocol developed by Arm. However, removing one of the NU4000’s three vector cores resulted in access to only a limited number of AXI ports. The problem was that ... » read more

Reinventing Traceability

This paper written by Vincent Thibault of Arteris IP describes semiconductor industry-specific problems with establishing and automating traceability between the disparate systems design teams use for requirements, specification, EDA, software engineering, verification, documentation and support. It proposes and explains the Arteris Harmony Trace solution which: Increases system quality... » read more

Using Machine Learning For Characterizations Of NoC Components

Modern NoC (Network-on-Chip) is built of complex functional blocks, such as packet switches and protocol converters. PPA (performance/power/area) estimates for these components are highly desirable during early design phases – long before NoC gate level netlist is synthesized. At this stage a NoC component is a soft module, described by a set of architectural parameters, like the bit width of... » read more

Advanced Real‐Time Video Image Recognition

In this 4-page paper, created with the participation of Mobileye, you will learn how the world's #1 vision-based ADAS company uses Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP to address demanding high bandwidth and low-latency requirements. By using FlexNoC interconnect IP for its EyeQ3 and EyeQ4 product lines, Mobileye was able to address the following issues: Maintain low latency while connecting... » read more

Application Driven Network-on Chip Architecture Exploration & Refinement for a Complex SoC

Peer-reviewed technical journal article from Springer's "Design Automation for Embedded Systems Journal."  Summarizes the various features a NoC is required to implement to be integrated in modern SoCs. Describes a top-down approach, based on the progressive refinement of the NoC description from its functional specification (Sect. 4) to its verification (Sect. 8) Click here to read more. ... » read more

CodaCache: Helping to Break the Memory Wall

As artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous vehicle systems have grown in complexity, system performance needs have begun to conflict with latency and power consumption requirements. This dilemma is forcing semiconductor engineers to re-architect their system-on-chip (SoC) designs to provide more scalable levels of performance, flexibility, efficiency, and integration. From the edge to data ... » read more

Power Dissipation Of The Network-On-Chip In A System-on-Chip For MPEG-4 Video Encoding
