Cortus Announces the General Availability of a RISC-V Processor Family – from Low End Embedded Controller to 64 bit Processor with Floating Point

Cortus Announces the General Availability of a RISC-V Processor Family – from Low End Embedded Controller to 64 bit Processor with Floating Point.

March 31, 2019 -- Cortus Announces the General Availability of a RISC-V Processor Family – from Low End Embedded Controller to 64 bit Processor with Floating Point.

As part of the Cortus IC Design Service offering, Cortus announces the general availability of a complete range of RISC-V processors. These are now available for design-in in customer ASIC designs implemented by the experienced teams at Cortus.

Michael Chapman (President and CEO) said “I am delighted to see so many products using the RISC-V ISA, our customers are embracing this architecture of the future. RISC-V is becoming a real industry standard!”

The whole gamut of application needs is covered by 6 processor cores. The range starts with a low gate count, very low power 32 bit CPU core – the APS1V (RV32EMC). A more powerful, but equally low power CPU, the APS3V (RV32IMC) comes next. If a multi-core solution is necessary the APS5V (RV32IMAC) is available. If floating point is needed then the single precision FPS6V (RV32IMACF) can be used or the FPS8V (RV32GC) for double precision calculations. The last member of the family is a high performance 64 bit processor with double precision floating point and MMU: the FPS69V (RV64GC).

Duc Nguyen Huu (General Manager) said “Our customers and partners are benefiting from our experience with processor design and I am proud of these RISC-V ISA implementations, which are creating real value in the ASICs we are designing for our customers. With over 4 billion devices with Cortus technology inside our customers enjoy real success with us.”

These processors have already been implemented in customer projects in the aerospace, satellite, industrial and automotive sectors. A complete development ecosystem is available, including graphical environment, compiler, debugger real time operating systems and tools. Billions of chips containing Cortus IP (including processor IP) have been manufactured based on the successful Cortus Ecosystem.
