What is Codasip about?

About us

Codasip is a processor solutions company which uniquely helps developers to differentiate their products. We are Europe’s leading RISC-V company with a global presence. Billions of chips already use our technology.

In today’s technology market, differentiation is everything. The difference between success and failure. And, in chip design, this difference is quite literally wafer thin. With increasing transistor costs, your developers can no longer rely on semiconductor scaling and legacy processors to achieve your goals. The only way forward is to implement custom compute with designs tailored to your applications.

We deliver custom compute through the combination of the open RISC-V ISA, Codasip Studio processor design automation and high-quality processor IP. Our innovative approach lets you easily customize and differentiate your designs. You can develop high-performing,

and game-changing products that are truly transformational.

Unlike traditional design approaches, our custom compute enables you to take control of your destiny. We allow you to set free your creativity and to use your ingenuity. We’re at the leading edge of a transformation in processor design, providing our partners, the most innovative companies on the planet, with a proven alternative to the norm.

At Codasip, we enable you to design different.

It’s time to take the leap.

Architect your ambition.

Gender equality

Gender equality is our primary focus of the Gender Equality Strategy for the years 2020 – 2025. Although inequalities still exist, the European Union has made significant progress in gender equality over the last decades. Equality in the workplace not only contributes to the economic and social performance, it also improves cohesion and helps to change attitudes in society as a whole.
