Artosyn Licenses SonicsGN On-Chip Network to Integrate Drone SoC
Dec 8 15
Sonics, Inc. announced that Artosyn Microelectronics has licensed SonicsGN, the company's NoC product. Artosyn is using SonicsGN as the IP integration technology for a new system on chip design that combines several drone functions, which were previously separate chips, into a single device.
Sonics, Inc. Introduces New Versions of SonicsStudio System-On-Chip Development Environment and SonicsGN NoC
Nov 17 15
Sonics, Inc. introduced new versions of its SonicsStudio system-on-chip (SoC) development environment and SonicsGN NoC. Sonics has enhanced the director graphical user interface in SonicsStudio release 8.1 to be more responsive with larger SoC designs and to deliver fast, static performance analysis that aids designers in optimizing their SoC architecture to satisfy their application requirements across the full range of system use cases. SonicsGN release 3.1 includes new timeout error detection capability that identifies IP cores that fail to accept or complete their required transactions. Such error conditions typically result from either software defects in IP core programming or transient hardware failures. In addition, Sonics has improved its legacy interface support for ARM AMBA-based SoC designs. Sonics has upgraded the SonicsStudio development environment with calculations that statically predict the performance capacities of the SoC architect's chosen network configuration. For each of the system use case scenarios, the architect describes the associated throughput characteristics and requirements either in a structured table or by automatically extracting that information from the simulation stimulus for that use case. SonicsStudio produces a set of report tables that compare the network's configured capacity versus the required throughput and highlights any discrepancies, together with their cause. This information is invaluable in guiding the architect to re-optimize the network to achieve performance requirements with minimum area.
