Codasip’s own portfolio of off-the-shelf processor cores is built on RISC-V, a modern open Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). The processors benefit from the rich ecosystem of software and hardware while retaining incredible flexibility. They can be deployed as-is and you will get the handy CodeSpace IDE with your new core. Alternatively, you can use the IP as a quick starting point for your own custom design using our unique, highly automatized Codasip Studio toolset.
Proven processor implementations
Codasip currently offers three processor families:
Small and energy-efficient Low Power Embedded cores,
more powerful High Performance Embedded cores,
and the most advanced Application cores able to run Linux.
In each of the families, you can choose from a number of series based on the microarchitecture complexity.
All Codasip designs are fully compliant with the RISC-V specification and fully customizable.

All Codasip RISC-V Processors are fully customizable to the needs of your design. Changes can be made by Codasip, or by your own developers using our unique, easy-to-use toolsuite Codasip Studio.
Need a single-cycle MAC, specialized crypto functions, or support for non-standard data types? No problem. And thanks to the extensible nature of the RISC-V ISA, all tailored cores remain RISC-V-compliant, allowing you to use the growing software ecosystem.
The Bk cores are supported by industry-leading SDK that is based on LLVM, GNU and other open standards, but is optimized for your unique processor configuration and backed by Codasip’s professional support.
To write software for your new core, you can use Codasip CodeSpace. This firmware development environment is based on the open Eclipse framework. It is a convenient standalone tool for code editing, compiling, profiling, and debugging. You will get a full 1-year license of Codasip CodeSpace by default with any of our cores.
Open, Extensible, Industry-supported
Codasip is proud to be a founding member of the RISC-V Foundation, joining industry leaders such as Google, Oracle, HP, AMD, Nvidia, and many others.
The power of the RISC-V architecture helps the development of a healthy, open HW and SW ecosystem, fosters collaboration and innovation, and allows each vendor to deliver their own unique value both to the shared ecosystem and to the market.
“Codasip and RISC-V enable all the advantages of application tailoring, with the stability and predictability of off-the-shelf ARM designs, while delivering an order of magnitude performance improvement.”Derek Atkins, CTO, SecureRF
