IC-LOGIC Debuts “First Time Right” Chip with Arteris FlexNoC and C2C™ Interconnect IP for Automotive and Industrial Applications
SUNNYVALE, California, October 29, 2013 − Network-on-Chip (NoC) interconnect IP enables shorter design time with increased quality
Arteris, Inc., the inventor and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, and IC-LOGIC GmbH today announced that the IC-LOGIC IO HUB chip will be deployed into automobiles beginning 2015. The “first time right” device will move into production this month, having successfully passed 5,000 tests over a three-month period of time. IO HUB leverages Arteris® FlexNoC® network on chip interconnect IP and C2C™ chip-to-chip interconnect IP for systems-on-chip (SoCs), enabling unparalleled visibility, integrated simulation and verification during design.
IC-LOGIC’s IO HUB is optimal to be paired with processors and platforms to provide a wide range of standard-based interfaces including 3 Gbps SATA (controller and PHY), dual 5 Gbps PCI express (MAC and PHY), Gigabit Ethernet (MAC with AVB and SGMII PHY), and NOR Flash memory serial interface.
IC-LOGIC’s IO HUB has been designed in close cooperation with tier one customers. The chip will be embedded into automotive infotainment systems slated for high-end automobiles. The IO HUB and Arteris’ interconnect IP ensures that the automotive infotainment system delivers rich real-time connectivity and communication.
“IC-LOGIC chose FlexNoC and C2C™ to create a flexible and high speed communication chip to respond to the increasing demand of high speed connectivity in car infotainment systems,” said Martin Damrau, founder and CEO of IC-LOGIC. “This is yet another ‘first time right’ device by IC-LOGIC’s industry leading team of automotive and industrial semiconductor designers that establishes a new speed record for design to production, delivering a field-hardened chip that will withstand our customers’ rigorous demands.”
“IC-LOGIC’s use of Arteris FlexNoC and C2C™ interconnect IP has helped reduce design schedules and has demonstrated the benefit of our NoC technology in automotive applications,” said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. “We are excited to partner with IC-LOGIC to support the increasingly complex automotive market.”
IC-LOGIC’s IO HUB enables solutions for the industrial control and automation market segment as well. The chip will be available in volume to be used in industrial settings in Q1 of 2014.
