Cadence Expands System IP Portfolio with Network on Chip to Optimize Electronic System Connectivity

Jun. 26, 2024 – 

Cadence Janus NoC enables design teams to achieve better PPA faster and with lower risk, freeing up valuable engineering resources for SoC differentiation

SAN JOSE, Calif.— June 26, 2024 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) today expanded its system IP portfolio with the addition of the Cadence® Janus™ Network-on-Chip (NoC). As larger, more complex SoCs and disaggregated multi-chip systems proliferate to accommodate today’s escalating compute demands, data delivery within and between silicon components has become increasingly challenging—impacting power, performance and area (PPA). The Cadence Janus NoC manages these simultaneous high-speed communications efficiently with minimal latency, enabling customers to achieve their PPA targets faster and with lower risk.

The Cadence Janus Network-on-Chip (NoC) efficiently manages simultaneous high-speed communications within and between silicon components with minimal latency. This enables customers to achieve their power, performance and area (PPA) targets faster and with lower risk, freeing up valuable engineering resources for SoC differentiation.

“Cadence is an established leader in IP and design quality, and we continue to invest in our foundational interface and processor IP, system IP, software and design services capabilities to enable our customers to develop differentiated and disaggregated designs,” said Boyd Phelps, senior vice president and general manager of the Silicon Solutions Group at Cadence. “The addition of the Cadence Janus NoC to our growing system IP portfolio is a key milestone in this strategy. Our evolution from an IP provider to an SoC design partner delivers greater value to our customers, empowering them to focus valuable engineering resources on differentiating their silicon.”

The Cadence Janus NoC leverages Cadence’s legacy of trusted and time-proven Tensilica® RTL generation tools. Customers can utilize Cadence’s extensive portfolio of software and hardware for simulation and emulation of their NoC and gain deep insights into its performance using Cadence’s System Performance Analysis tool (SPA). By enabling architectural exploration, this flow results in the best NoC design to meet product needs. The NoC leverages Cadence’s well-established leadership in IP and quality, backed by industry-leading customer satisfaction for technical support.

The Cadence Janus NoC mitigates the routing congestion and timing issues associated with today’s complex SoC interconnects, which often don’t become apparent until physical implementation. Addressing the most pressing needs today, Cadence’s first-generation NoC provides a platform for future innovations, such as support for industry-standard memory and I/O coherence protocols. Current features and benefits include:

NoC IP Cores

“We are pleased that Cadence is expanding its IP portfolio by investing in system-level solutions,” said Suk Lee, VP and GM, Ecosystem Technology Office at Intel Foundry. “As a NoC is vital for almost any subsystem in today’s SoCs, we support Cadence’s initiatives in developing their NoC and look forward to them continuing to expand their IP offering going forward.”

Availability and Related Resources

The Cadence Janus NoC will be available in July 2024.
