Arteris Helps Sckipio Deliver the World's First G.fast Modems

CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arteris Inc., the inventor and leading supplier of silicon-proven commercial network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect IP solutions, today announced that fabless semiconductor company Sckipio of Ramat Gan, Israel, used the Arteris FlexNoC fabricIP as the backbone system-on-chip fabric for their pioneering G.fast chipsets announced today.

Telcos have turned to the new ITU G.fast communications standard to deliver ultra broadband over their existing copper infrastructure. Delivering 1 Gbps per subscriber with a flexible downlink/uplink, G.fast delivers ultra-high speed broadband while eliminating fiber-to-the-home infrastructure costs. Sckipio chipsets leverage the Arteris FlexNoC interconnect fabric IP to drive extremely high throughput while maintaining low latencies for real-time response.

"Using Arteris helped Sckipio to be the first to market with G.fast products," said Ron Sterenson, Vice President of R&D for Sckipio. "We chose FlexNoC fabric IP because we wanted to be the first to provide built-in, high performance vectoring across a large number of high bandwidth lines while maintaining low latency. Arteris helped us deliver a highly advanced SoC design while significantly shortening our time to market and reducing our product development risks."

"Sckipio placed their confidence in Arteris to meet their extremely high performance requirements while simultaneously reducing product design time," said K. Charles Janac, President and CEO of Arteris. "We are proud that our technology and team helped make it possible for Sckipio to pioneer the huge new G.fast market."
