Sonics, Tensilica team to improve IP efficiency
Sonics has a number of variants to its on-chip networking including SonicsSX, SonicsLX, SNAP and SonicsGN, which it describes as the industry’s first and only gigahertz network-on-chip. All are now compatible with PIF.
Customizable dataplane processors (DPUs) from Tensilica (Santa Clara, Calif.) are used in the audio, video, 4G LTE and other subsystems where time-critical data signal processing occurs.
"By working with Sonics, we can provide our customers with an efficient on-chip network, which is particularly useful for cutting edge multicore chip designs," stated Steve Roddy, vice president of marketing and business development at Tensilica, in a statement issued by Sonics.
