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.
SoCs/ASICs containing Cortus processor cores have been manufactured in over 1.5 billion devices for a wide range of applications including 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.


What sets Cortus apart from other processor IP vendors is the ability to fine-tune APS and FPS cores for customer’s applications. Whether, for example, it’s creating a custom security solution, accelerating an algorithm with a co-processor, or choosing components of the CPU, Cortus enables their processor IP cores to be modified to provide the absolute best processor IP for your SoCs/ASICs.
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.
