SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 26, 2008— Arteris, Inc., the leading provider of Network-on-Chip (NoC) solutions, today announced that Pixelworks, Inc. has selected Arteris' on-chip interconnect IP solution for use in its next-generation digital video image processor products. Pixelworks, a leading provider of chips to the advanced display industry, is utilizing the Arteris NoC solution to speed design and increase performance in its innovative co-processor solutions for digital flat panel display television applications.
"The Arteris NoC solution provides us with a new option for
on-chip communication to help deliver higher performing products,
faster and at lower cost," said Bob Zhang, VP of Technology of
Pixelworks. The Arteris' NoC technology offers an efficient platform
for semiconductor companies to reuse existing IP so that current chips
can become IPs for the next generation of designs. The methodology
delivered by Arteris' NoC architectural exploration tools enables
on-chip communication optimization in the early stages of the IC
design cycle and allows designers to perform more in-depth analysis of
design decisions. "We are very excited to work with Pixelworks and be
part of their success. Their use of our NoC technology demonstrates
the broad impact that Network-on-Chip technology can have in the
semiconductor industry," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of
Arteris." Pixelworks production of a digital television image
co-processor with a Network-on-Chip interconnect is a major milestone
Arteris' NoC Solution handles high bandwidth traffic between
multiple processors, video engines, and high-speed memories; and has
proven to provide significant performance and IP integration
improvements while, in many cases, using fewer gates and wires and
operating at lower power than traditional bus-based approaches.
About Arteris Inc.
Arteris, Inc. provides Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect IP and
associated design tools to improve the performance of system-on-chip
(SoC) architectures for multimedia, telecom, and mobile applications.
Arteris' NoC solution manages the on-chip communications within
complex SoCs delivering high performance, while reducing the number of
global wires and lowering power consumption. It allows chip developers
to implement efficient and high-performance SoC designs, overcoming
limitations of traditional layered or pipelined bus-based
architectures. Arteris' technology is scaleable in terms of the number
of IP blocks designers can network, as well as with deep submicron
silicon manufacturing processes. The Arteris NoC solution is
compatible with existing design flows and IP interface standards.
Arteris operates globally with headquarters in San Jose,
California and an engineering center in Paris, France. Arteris has
raised more than $24 million in equity funding from an international
set of investors. More information can be found at
