EdgeQ Deploys Arteris IP for 5G+AI Base Station-on-a-Chip for Wireless Infrastructure

5G+AI Base Station-on-a-Chip
Written by Kirsten Campbell

Arteris, Inc. (Nasdaq: AIP), a leading provider of system IP which accelerates system-on-chip (SoC) creation, today announced that EdgeQ has deployed Arteris’ FlexNoC network-on-chip (NoC) IP on its revolutionary 5G and AI-driven Base Station-on-a-Chip. The scalable and adaptive EdgeQ platform targets communications for both small-cell and macro-cell applications in a software-defined manner. This scalable architecture packs high throughput performance across a large set of concurrent users, within a compact power envelope.

EdgeQ has developed a Base Station-on-a-Chip, with the aim to give operators, cloud service providers and enterprises the revolutionary ability to build, configure and deploy public and private networks that are simple, scalable, and affordable. The company’s approach is to offer an all-in-one chip that delivers multi-mode 4G and 5G convergence along with artificial intelligence. It offers high throughput and low power consumption while significantly reducing the total cost of ownership required for deploying and upgrading public and private 5G networks.

“Designing a software-defined modem that effectively shrinks an entire base station onto a single chip is challenging. We have to address the issues of a highly complex design and management of high-velocity packets being transferred across the die,” said Raghulkumaran Gunaseelan, SoC NoC architect at EdgeQ. “Our Base Station-on-a-Chip requires a NoC interconnect that is configurable and provides high bandwidth. Arteris was a perfect choice because it gave us the flexibility, ease of use and proven IP that mitigated overall design risks.”

Arteris’ proven NoC IP, with its analysis capabilities, enables efficient throughput and latency assessments, along with the lowest power consumption. This accelerates the evaluation and modification processes, including debugging features necessary to mitigate risk for design considerations and time-to-market pressures. FlexNoC’s ability to facilitate quick pipeline additions without extensive design verification further streamlined EdgeQ’s development process.

“The global market for private networks, including 4G LTE and 5G, will grow at over 30% per year during this decade, particularly as it intersects with AI,” said Laurent Moll, COO of Arteris. “It’s an honor to see our FlexNoC interconnect IP included in an innovative project pioneering the convergence of 4G/5G connectivity and AI compute for the communications industry.”
