The Arm CoreLink Network Interconnect offers highly configurable topology with Network on Chip (NoC)-like properties that enable you to build high performance, optimized, AMBA-compliant SoC connectivity. CoreLink Network Interconnect is configurable across a wide range of applications from a single bridge component, for example an AHB to AXI protocol bridge, to a complex infrastructure that consists of up to 128 masters and 64 slaves in a combination of different AMBA protocols.

  • CoreLink NIC-450 Network Interconnect Chip.
  • CoreLink NIC-450

    • Library of key interconnect IP that enables designers to build a scalable and configurable network interconnect
    • Available with a new tooling automation flow using CoreLink Creator that employs algorithms to accelerate configuration based on design requirements
    • Enables integrated tooling environment using CoreLink Creator and Socrates DE (licensed separately) for configuring complex interconnect subsystem designs.
    • Includes all NIC-400 features
  • CoreLink NIC-400 Network Interconnect Chip.
  • CoreLink NIC-400

    • Fully configurable, hierarchical, low latency, low power connectivity for AMBA 4 AXI4, AXI3, AHB-Lite and APB interfaces.
    • Scalable for multiple applications from simple single core designs, up to large coherent systems as a companion to CoreLink CCI and CCN coherent interconnects.

NIC-450 and CoreLink Creator

CoreLink Creator with its harvesting flows and enhanced tooling environment provides significant improvements to configure NICs, which decreases time to market.

Functional enhancement in NIC-400r1 with QVN-terminate feature to resolve head-of-line blocking when accessing DRAM provide:

  • Improved support for QVN with DMC controllers using sideband QOSACCEPT signaling, supported in DMC-500 and other 3rd party DMC providers.

  • CPU latency reduction with QoS enhancements, designed and tested with Arm memory controllers such as CoreLink DMC-500.
