embedded world 2024: Codasip demonstrates CHERI memory protection

Munich, Germany, 13 March 2024 –Codasip, the leader in RISC-V Custom Compute, will demonstrate CHERI memory protection and HW/SW co-optimization at next month’s embedded world 2024 in Nuremberg, Germany. The technologies are enabled by Codasip’s unique Custom Compute offering combining the Codasip Studio design automation tools with a range of customizable RISC-V processor IP.

Codasip will showcase its Custom Compute offering in hall 4, stand 4-368. Visitors will get to see fine-grained memory protection with CHERI. This technology, invented at Cambridge University and brought to commercial implementations by Codasip, actively prevents the most common cyberattacks with the potential of eliminating approximately 70 percent of vulnerabilities documented in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) program. As announced in October 2023, Codasip is adding built-in fine-grained memory protection to its recently launched 700 processor family by extending the RISC-V ISA with CHERI-based custom instructions.

In addition, the company will show how to profile an embedded application to identify bottlenecks in the code and how custom instructions can be easily added to optimize the hardware to improve the application’s performance. Examples of the potential gains from HW/SW co-optimization include:

As part of the embedded world conference program, Codasip’s CTO Zdenek Prikryl will present the session “Customized RISC-V in a simple game console” (Session 8.5 SYSTEM-ON-CHIP (SoC) DESIGN / RISC-V 2) on Thursday 11 April.
