Artosyn Licenses SonicsGN On-Chip Network To Integrate Drone SoC

MILPITAS, Calif., Dec. 8, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —   Sonics, Inc., the world's foremost supplier of on-chip network (NoC) technologies and services, today announced that Artosyn Microelectronics (Shanghai, China) has licensed SonicsGN®, the company's flagship NoC product. Artosyn is using SonicsGN as the IP integration technology for a new system-on-chip (SoC) design that combines several drone functions, which were previously separate chips, into a single device.

"Drones are an exciting global growth opportunity with both strong consumer and commercial demand," said Grant Pierce, CEO of Sonics. "Artosyn is an innovative drone subsystem supplier and its adoption of Sonics' NoC demonstrates our continued success and penetration in China's SoC market place."

"With SonicsGN, we are integrating our video encoder, modem, and system controller IP into a single-chip solution fabricated in 40 nanometer silicon to meet the needs of our customers' next-generation drones," said Bo Shen, CTO of Artosyn. "Sonics has a proven track record in the NoC business and its technology is helping us to address important drone design issues such as power consumption and complexity. Our customers are the leaders in the drone market and their commitment to our advanced SoC ensures that position for the future."
