SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Arteris, Inc., the inventor
and only supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC)
interconnect IP solutions, today announced that Socle Technology Corp. has
licensed the Arteris® FlexNoC™ interconnect IP for its internal technology
platforms and will provide design and implementation services for high-end SoC
design customers.


Socle Technology, design affiliate of GLOBALFOUNDRIES, offers leading-edge

platform enables higher interconnect frequencies, solves routing congestion
and provides faster time-to-market for Socle's customers.

"Our customers require the latest, most advanced technology and the Arteris
FlexNoC interconnect IP is a necessary addition to our portfolio," said Stone
Peng, president and CEO of Socle Technology. "Acquiring the FlexNoC license
strengthens our technology platform and design services offerings, and
provides our customers with more options to future-proof their solutions."

"Arteris is very pleased to add Socle Technology as one of our design
