When Cortus was founded in 2005 by two entrepreneurs, Michael Chapman and Duc Nguyen-Huu, they had a simple mission: Build better embedded processors for SoCs/ASICs to execute high-level languages like C and C++. And that’s exactly what they’ve achieved in the APS and FPS family of processor IP cores. Minimalist in nature and supported by an impressive list of peripheral IP cores, SW development tools, an FPGA development platform, a Cortus community of partners, and top notch customization services, Cortus processor IP cores are enabling their customers to deliver stand out products to market faster.
Cortus is a leading semiconductor and embedded systems solutions company, headquartered in Mauguio (Montpellier area, South of France).
Cortus provides a large range of embedded systems solutions including HW, SW, processors (including RISC-V ISA processors), digital, and analog IP, prototyping and verification solutions in different areas such as SIM

cards, bank cards, ePassports, automotive sensors, image processing, industrial controllers, M2M controllers, secure microcontrollers, sensors, smart meters, wireless, touch screen controllers and IoT devices. Over 50 companies have licensed Cortus cores and over 2 billion devices have been manufactured containing Cortus processors and IPs.

Cortus is a founding Platinum member of the RISC-V foundation to ensure that our customers have the ability to design to emerging industry standards for protection of investment.
