Carbon and Arteris Partner to Deliver Interconnect Models to SoC Designers

Joint Solution Enables Easy Creation, Import of Accurate Arteris FlexNoC Interconnect Models for Carbon SoCDesigner Plus

ACTONMASS. –– March 8, 2011 –– Carbon Design Systems and Arteris, Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property (IP) solutions, announced today they have implemented a partnership agreement that enables accurate models of Arteris NoC interconnect IP to be generated, managed and distributed using the Carbon IP Exchange web portal. 

The joint Carbon/Arteris solution offers design teams a way to easily create and import accurate Arteris FlexNoC interconnect models for Carbon SoCDesigner Plus.

We see strong demand for models of Arteris’ NoC interconnect IP,” states Bill Neifert, chief technology officer at Carbon Design Systems®, the leading supplier of virtual platform and secure model solutionsARM’s Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A9 microprocessor designers are pushing for better price, performance and area tradeoffs andthe SoC interconnect plays a vital role in serving this needOur partnership with Arteris enables engineers to make architectural decisions and design tradeoffs based upon a 100%-accurate virtual representation.”

The new Carbon/Arteris flow allows Carbon’s SoCDesigner Plus users to use Arteris FlexNoC to configure their NoC interconnect fabric IP and then upload the configuration to Carbon IP ExchangeThe web portal then creates a 100% accurate virtual model of the configuration and makes it available for download and use in SoCDesigner Plus.

Simulation with virtual models of our NoC interconnect IP are the best way to make system-on-chip architectural optimizations and tradeoffs,” comments Kurt Shuler,Arteris’ vice president of marketing.  “By partnering with Carbon to make 100% accurate models of our IP available on Carbon IP Exchange, we are empowering design teamsto utilize virtual models earlier in the design process.”

Availability

Carbon’s 100% accurate models of Arteris FlexNoC interconnect IP are available now from the Carbon IP Exchange web portal.
