CAMPBELL, Calif. – Arteris Inc., the inventor and industry leader in commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Istuary Innovation Group has licensed its Arteris®FlexNoC interconnect IP.
Arteris FlexNoC’s advanced data protection features are well suited to meet the needs for Istuary’s enterprise storage controllers, a proprietary product planned for launch in 2017. FlexNoC’s unique benefits include:
- On-chip data protection – Arteris FlexNoC IP’s parity data protection protect on-chip data flows in real time.
- Integrated support for Tensilica PIF protocol – Arteris FlexNoC includes support for the Cadence Tensilica Processor Interface (PIF) transaction protocol support.
- High bandwidth, low latency for PCIe – Arteris FlexNoC provides quality-of-service (QoS) configuration options, allowing optimal use of high bandwidth and low latency block transfers.
- Lower power consumption – FlexNoC’s power management options allow high numbers of voltage and clock domains while enabling power and clock gating at multiple levels.
“We chose Arteris FlexNoC IP because it is ideally suited to our needs,” said Hugh Chow, CEO of Istuary Innovation Group. “In addition to data protection and power reduction, FlexNoC allows easy integration with IP from multiple vendors using different transaction protocols. FlexNoC helps us deliver high performance, lower power enterprise storage controllers in a short time to market.”
Istuary’s enterprise storage controllers are state of art, providing over twice as much storage space and many other advanced value-added features. The product is currently being developed by its Vancouver and Toronto teams and is planned for launch in 2017.
