Cache coherent interconnect IP pre-validated for Armv9 processors

EDN Network - Thu, 03/14/2024 - 11:57

Modern system-on-chip (SoC) designs require multiple interconnects for optimal performance, and here, cache coherent and non-coherent interconnects work together. In fact, it’s imperative that SoCs have an efficient combination of cache-coherent and non-coherent operations.

While SoC parts like accelerators and peripherals generally don’t require cache coherency, sharing a coherent view of memory and I/O is critical, so the processor has access to the most recent data without having to go off-chip. Arteris claims that its non-coherent FlexWay interconnect IP and Ncore cache coherent network-on-chip (NoC) IP seamlessly work together to offer SoC designers robust architectural flexibility.

The latest version of its cache-coherent NoC IP works with multiple processor IPs, including RISC-V and the next-generation Armv9 Cortex processor. Arteris has pre-validated Armv9 Cortex processor IP for its Ncore cache coherent interconnect IP, and the resulting validation system boots Linux on a multi-cluster Arm design and executes test suites to validate critical cache coherency cases.

It also supports multiple protocols, including CHI-E, with which the latest Armv9 processors are closely associated. Other protocols are CHI-B and ACE coherent, plus ACE-Lite and AXI* IO coherent interfaces. That allows chip designers to secure their investment in older architectures and evolve in a cost-effective manner.

Ncore can scale across a mix of fully coherent, I/O-coherent, non-coherent, memory and peripheral interfaces using a variety of NoC topologies. Source: Arteris

Next, Ncore cache coherent interconnect IP has achieved ISO 26262 certification from exida, a certification agency specializing in functional safety standards for the automotive industry. Previously, Arteris supported safety and designers would do their own hardware checking in terms of safety process. However, this Ncore version is certified, meaning that interconnect design is out-of-box ready with ISO 26262 certification.

On the software side, Ncore has a very logical user interface flow to accelerate design efficiency. The flow starts at the architectural level with chip specifications and system assembly configuration options. Then, it goes to the automatic mapping process of NoC library elements, followed by optimization and refinement before RTL is generated.

Moreover, compared to the manual approach, NCoR maintains a database of inputs that SoC architectures require. So, once the initial configuration is classified, which can be iterated, SoC designers can revisit each segment, making the job of managing SoC specifications a straightforward task.

Charles Janac, president and CEO of Arteris, says that SoC designers are challenged by the growing complexity resulting from the number of processing elements, multiple protocols, and functional safety requirements of modern electronics. “Our latest release of a production-proven Ncore marks an important milestone toward our ultimate cache coherent interconnect IP vision to connect any processor, using any protocol and topology.”

Ncore supports direct connections for heterogeneous, asymmetric systems and other flexible connectivity options, ensuring adaptability to various applications across automotive, industrial, communications, and enterprise computing markets. Arteris claims that Ncore can save SoC design teams upward of 50 years of engineering effort per project compared to manually generated interconnect solutions.

ROHM Develops Automotive Primary LDOs: Leveraging Original QuiCur Technology to Achieve Industry-Leading Load Response Characteristics

ELE Times - Thu, 03/14/2024 - 11:47

Ensures stable output in automotive applications with high input voltage and significant load jumps

ROHM has developed 45V rated 500mA output primary LDO regulators: BD9xxM5-C (BD933M5EFJ-C / BD950M5EFJ-C / BD900M5EFJ-C / BD933M5WEFJ-C / BD950M5WEFJ-C / BD900M5WEFJ-C). These devices are suitable for supplying power to automotive electronic components such as ECUs that operate from vehicle batteries.

In recent years, the number of onboard power supply systems and functions continues to grow as electrification in the automotive industry progresses. This increases the demand for primary LDOs that can directly step down the battery voltage to MCUs and other components used in ECUs. However, the energy supplied by the vehicle’s lead-acid battery is often subject to sudden voltage fluctuations, which primary LDOs are required to provide with excellent line-transient response in these conditions.

At the same time, ECUs and other downstream devices often experience load current variations during operation, which also demand excellent load-transient response characteristics. A high-frequency response is essential for fast output voltage recovery, but it has been difficult to provide sufficient phase margin at the same time to ensure stable operation. In response, ROHM developed a novel solution that addresses these challenges.

The BD9xxM5-C incorporates original QuiCur high-speed load response technology that delivers excellent response characteristics to load current fluctuations. For example, the LDO can maintain output to within 100mV of the set voltage even as the load changes between 0 and 500mA in 1μs (Rise time/Fall time). Furthermore, low 9.5µA (typ.) current consumption contributes to lower power consumption in automotive applications. These new products will be available in four packages, ranging from the compact HTSOP-J8 to the high heat dissipation TO252 (TO252-3/TO252-5) and HRP5 types. This allows users to select the most suitable package for each use case.

Going forward, ROHM will continue to improve reliability while reducing power consumption in automotive applications by developing products utilizing its strengths in analogue and other technologies.

Product Lineup

The new BD9xxM5-C meets the basic requirements for automotive products, including 150°C operation and qualification under the AEC-Q100 automotive reliability standard. A wide range of packages will be available to select from depending on the application environment, all featuring excellent response performance and low current consumption using proprietary QuiCur technology.

The lineup will be expanded to comprise a total of 18 models, (including the TO252-3, TO252-5, and HRP5 packages) by FY2024.

Application Examples

Suitable for a wide range of automotive applications such as ECUs that operate on vehicle primary power supply systems.

  • Powertrain: Fuel Injection (FI), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Body Systems: Body Control Modules
  • Infotainment: Instrument Clusters, Head-Up Displays (HUDs)

QuiCur High-Speed Load Response Technology

QuiCur is the name of ROHM’s proprietary ‘Quick Current’ high-speed load response circuit capable of maximizing load response characteristics (response performance) without causing instability in the feedback circuits of power supply ICs.

Stable operation of the power supply IC is also possible with minimal output capacitance. And in the case of switching regulators, which are a type of power supply IC, it is possible to linearly adjust the capacitance and output voltage fluctuation to easily achieve stable operation even when the capacitance is changed due to specification changes, significantly reducing the number of person-hours required for power circuit design – both in terms of decreasing component count and ensuring stable operation.

Support Tools

ROHM Real Models are high-accuracy SPICE models that utilize original model-based technology to faithfully reproduce the electrical and temperature characteristics of the actual IC, resulting in a perfect match between the IC and simulation values. This ensures reliable verification, contributing to more efficient application development – for example by preventing rework after prototyping.



In a power supply circuit, the side in charge of 1st stage conversion from a power source such as a battery is called the primary and the side responsible for 2nd stage conversion is referred to as the secondary.

LDO Regulator (Low Drop Out/Low Saturation Regulator)

A type of power supply IC that converts between two different DC voltage levels. Falls under the category of linear regulator (where the input/output voltages operate linearly) characterized by a small input-output voltage difference. Compared to DC-DC converter ICs (switching regulators), LDOs feature a simpler circuit configuration and lower noise.

Load Current

From the point of view of the power supply ICs, all electronic circuits in the subsequent stages, including MCUs and sensors, can be considered “loads”. When these loads operate, a (load) current flows, causing the output voltage of the power supply IC to undershoot (drop) or overshoot. Load transient response characteristics refer to the response time until the changed voltage due to the load current is restored and the power supply stabilizes.

It specializes in wet leasing with several leading passengers and global cargo airlines from China, Africa, and the Middle East, making it one of the leading privately-owned aviation companies in the Gulf.

Jaideep Mirchandani, Group Chairman of Sky One FZE

Rashi Bajpai, Sub-Editor at ELE Times had an opportunity to interact with Mr. Jaideep Mirchandani, Group Chairman of Sky One FZE, and discuss various aspects of the global aviation industry and Sky One’s product portfolio and competitive edge.

This is an excerpt from the interview.




ELE Times: How is the aviation sector currently positioned for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)?

Mr Jaideep: Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) made from biomass or waste-based organic feedstock aim to decrease greenhouse gas emissions in the aviation industry.  However, as cited by the World Economic Forum in its 2023 report on SAF (What is SAF and why are only 0.1% of flights powered by it?) there is a need to overcome some key challenges including the substantial cost burden of SAF compared to petroleum jet fuel, the low percentage of global consumption, the necessity for a greater diversity of feedstocks and production methods, and the requirement for a favourable tax policy to incentivize its production.

Many countries are developing strategies for the adoption of SAF. For instance, in January, India’s Civil Aviation Ministry proposed a 1-5% usage of SAF starting in 2027 in alignment with the second phase of the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), as suggested by ICAO. Similarly, other major countries have also established SAF volume targets and adoption timelines based on their net zero goals.

Currently, SAF needs to be blended with traditional aviation fuel. Ongoing research aims to use SAF as a direct replacement, eliminating the need for aircraft engine modifications, though this process will take more time.

ELE Times: Tell us about some of the latest technologies and trends that airlines including Sky One are now focusing on to enhance the customer experience.

Mr Jaideep: Today’s passengers seek more than just connectivity; they desire an experience tailored to their individual preferences, right from the moment they book a flight to the time they land. Recognizing the digital sophistication of the new-age passenger, airlines are investing in technology-focused training initiatives to elevate the proficiency of their staff.

This strategic upskilling empowers the workforce to navigate digital platforms and communication tools effectively, ensuring a seamless and user-friendly experience for passengers. At Sky One, our emphasis is also on streamlining operations with a more agile and responsive approach to handling disruptions. We are also leveraging the most efficient communication channels for personalised interactions. I foresee an even more advanced integration of AI not only for customer service but also for predictive maintenance, fuel optimisation, crew scheduling, and revenue management. However, as technology advances, it also brings about potential security and privacy risks, and it is important to effectively manage passengers’ data and ensure their privacy.

ELE Times: What are your views on emerging solutions in “all-electric air mobility service”?

Mr Jaideep: Current reports indicate that many companies are actively developing air taxis and flying cars, with expectations that OEMs will certify them by 2025. Airbus has already announced CityAirbus NextGen, an all-electric, four-seat vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) prototype based on a lift and cruise concept, featuring an 80-km operational range and a cruise speed of 120 km/h suitable for various flight operations in cities and communities.

In India, the prospects for electric air taxis are bright, as InterGlobe Enterprise, the parent company of IndiGo, has announced plans to launch an all-electric taxi service in 2026 in partnership with the US-based Archer Aviation. Predictions suggest that electric aircraft, capable of taking off like helicopters and flying like airplanes, may enter commercial service by the end of the coming year or early 2026.

As far as my views are concerned, I believe such innovations in aviation are inevitable.  However, the air taxi industry may not experience a significant boom until the end of this decade. Initial instances of eVTOL craft are also most likely to be limited to military and cargo applications. Passenger services, I believe, will not only need additional infrastructure facilities but also supportive policy decisions regarding practical applications in urban areas.

ELE Times: Give us a brief overview of your product catalogue, its specifications, and major USP.

Mr Jaideep: Our catalogue includes a wide range of services, such as cargo charters, MRO, wet leasing support to passenger airlines, training, helicopter services, and flight operations support for relief missions. Recently, we’ve inked pacts with Fly Oya from Libya, Uplift Airport Services in Romania, and Cerium Air in Kazakhstan, further expanding our services globally. For startup airlines, we also provide advantageous lease terms on our top-quality aircraft. Further, Pier Seven Aviation, an important part of Sky One, has been committed to delivering high-quality flight training and education to aspiring pilots worldwide since 2015.

At the core of Sky One’s aviation philosophy is humanism, which spurs us to serve, help, and connect individuals and communities in need. This ethos is reflected in our comprehensive services, particularly our active involvement in relief support. We have a dedicated team trained to mobilise swiftly, ensuring the prompt deployment of essential resources, including aircraft, personnel, and equipment, to affected areas dealing with a humanitarian crisis or a natural disaster.

ELE Times: What, in your opinion, are the key growth drivers behind markets like India, and could you provide insights into the market outlook for 2024, with a focus on your expectations?

Mr Jaideep: The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently strengthened profitability projections for airlines in 2024, anticipating a notable upswing in the industry’s net overall revenues. The forecast indicates that travel figures will surge to 4.7 billion people in 2024, surpassing pre-pandemic levels—a highly positive sign for the aviation sector. This growth is primarily attributed to emerging economies, with India being highlighted by IATA as one of the most promising markets for global aviation and a key player in shaping the industry’s future landscape.

India’s surge in aviation is fueled by the rapid growth of its domestic sector. According to data compiled by aviation analytics firm Network Thoughts, India’s domestic air travel achieved a historic milestone in 2023, with a record-breaking 15.2 crore passengers—surpassing the previous peak of 14.4 crore passengers in 2019. With the significant emphasis the government is placing on Regional Connectivity Schemes, coupled with a focus on enhanced airport capacity and the addition of new destinations, this will further contribute to maintaining the growth momentum. Domestic travellers can expect an enhanced travel experience in the coming years with more travel options to Tier-II and III cities.

Meanwhile, the international travel trends from India suggest that the Middle East and North America will continue to be major revenue drivers, as has been the case for several years. It is anticipated that the Middle East will persist in dominating the traffic flows from India, with over 40% of international traffic heading to the region, and Dubai alone capturing nearly 15% of it.
