Cortus, a technology leader in cost effective, silicon efficient, 32-bit processor IP, and SoC solution provider Daou InCube, announce that they are teaming up to offer platforms and design services based on Cortus 32-bit processor cores.
Cortus S.A. licenses a range of 32-bit processor cores for embedded systems. The cores provide licensees with a scalable choice in embedded computational performance and silicon area to meet a wide variety of application needs.
"Today's applications demand small silicon footprints and energy efficiency" says Kenny Seo, VP Semiconductor Business Unit of Daou InCube, "The Cortus 32-bit processors and peripherals give us the ideal starting point for creating design platforms". He explains, "These platforms add to our existing portfolio of front-end design, back-end design, test and packaging services".
"By working with Daou InCube we are pleased to offer a well-rounded design platform solution to Korean customers", says Michael Chapman, CEO and President of Cortus, "Daou InCube has strong capabilities from design specification through to tested integrated circuits".
The Cortus family of APS processors starts with the world's smallest 32-bit core, the APS1, and goes up to the floating point FPS6. All cores interface to Cortus' peripherals including Ethernet 10/100 MAC, USB 2.0 Device and USB 2.0 OTG via the efficient APS bus. They also share the simple vectored interrupt structure which ensures rapid, real time interrupt response, with low software overhead.
The APS toolchain and IDE (for C and C++) is available to licensees free of charge, and which can be customised and branded for final customer use. Ports of various RTOSs are available such as FreeRTOS, Micrium ?C/OSII and ?CLinux.
