MtekVision Selects Arteris FlexLLI MIPI Low Latency Interface IP for Systems-on-Chip
Apr 16, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Arteris, a supplier of network-on-chip interconnect IP solutions, announced that MtekVision has selected Arteris FlexLLI MIPI Low Latency Interface inter-chip link IP for multiple systems-on-chip.
In a release, the Company noted that MIPI LLI is a point-to-point interconnect between two chips, with round-trip latencies low enough for both chips to share a single DRAM memory. LLI uses the MIPI M-PHY as the physical interface.
Companies contributing to the MIPI LLI specification include: Agilent Technologies, Arasan Chip Systems, Arteris, BitifEye Digital Test Solutions, Broadcom Corporation, Intel Corporation, Motorola Mobility, Renesas Electronics Corporation, Qualcomm, Research In Motion, Samsung Electronics, ST-Ericsson, Synopsys, Texas Instruments and the University of New Hampshire Inter Operability Lab.
Arteris has been a contributor in the MIPI Alliance LLI Working Group since the LLI investigation group was formed in 2009.
"MtekVision licensed Arteris FlexLLI because it is the only silicon-proven LLI solution, and is the fastest and safest way for us to implement MIPI LLI within our SoCs," said Harry-Hanchul Jun, Vice President at MtekVision. "Unlike the configurable FlexLLI product, the MIPI LLI specification does not encompass significant items like QoS, frequency, power and clock management, SoC interconnect integration, performance simulation and automated verification. We wanted our LLI IP to adapt to our SoC interconnect, and not the other way around. Arteris FlexLLI was the obvious choice."
For customers desiring a complete LLI digital controller and M-PHY solution, Arteris and Synopsys also offer a joint solution consisting of Arteris' FlexLLI MIPI LLI digital controller IP and Synopsys' DesignWare MIPI M-PHY IP.
"Arteris' goal is to make industry adoption of MIPI LLI an easy and painless experience," said Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "MtekVision's decision to license FlexLLI is strong recognition of Arteris' efforts since 2009 to help make LLI easy to configure, integrate and verify."
Arteris provides Network-on-Chip interconnect IP and tools.
