Majority of Leading China Semiconductor Companies Rely on Arteris Network-on-Chip Interconnect IP

Arteris NoC technology used by four of the top five Chinese fabless semiconductor OEMs

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 19, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Arteris, Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that its interconnect fabric IP has been licensed and deployed in a majority of chips developed by China's leading semiconductor companies for applications including consumer electronics, smartphones, and tablets. Based on the IHS iSuppli ranking of the top Chinese fabless semiconductor OEMs in terms of revenue, Arteris counts four of the top five OEMs as customers - Spreadtrum Communications, HiSilicon Technologies, RDA Technologies and Allwinner Technology.

According to IHS iSuppli, total Chinese fabless revenue is projected to hit $12.4 billion by 2016, fueled by growth in data processing, wireless communications and consumer electronics. Since 2007, Arteris has focused on the influential China market, offering customers in-country design, development and sales resources. Arteris has enabled its China-based customers - Actions Semiconductor, Allwinner Technology, HiSilicon, Nufront, RDA Microelectronics, and Rockchip Electronics – to improve their design process and dramatically shortened time-to-market by leveraging FlexNoC interconnect IP. Customers Spreadtrum Communications and Leadcore Technology utilize the company's C2C chip-to-chip interconnect IP, reducing overall bill-of-materials cost and improving performance.

"We see a very dynamic market in China's local integrated-circuit (IC) design market, with double digit year-over-year growth projected for 2013," said Vincent Gu, Principal Analyst, Market Intelligence, with IHS iSuppli. Tools such as Arteris' network-on-chip interconnect IP fabric enable these design firms to more effectively meet the growing demand for semiconductors in China at a lower cost point.

"Arteris has provided exceptional support to our teams, giving us the confidence to implement the FlexNoC solution in our critical Smartphone SoC platform," said Li Shiqin, IC Design Manager at Rockchip.

"The Arteris FlexNoC commercial SoC interconnect fabric IP gives us the performance required by our customers," said Ding Ran, chief technology officer of Allwinner Technology. "We have seen first-hand how the interconnect IP improves process flow and overall system performance."

"Arteris has achieved significant market share in the China fabless semiconductor market by not only solving our customers' design challenges, but also by enabling them to quickly adopt best-of-breed technologies and development practices," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "The Arteris interconnect IP fabric technology is one of the most significant SoC cost reduction and productivity innovations of the current decade, based on technology results and market adoption."

Arteris FlexNoC is the leading interconnect fabric IP chosen because it provides chips design teams with key advantages:

  • Lower chip cost and smaller die area
  • Lower development costs and accelerated time-to-market through shorter design cycles
  • Ability to produce multiple chip versions based on a common SoC platform
  • Greater interconnect speeds resulting in improved performance
  • Reduced power consumption due to advanced clock and power management features, and fewer gates and wires
