Cortus, the French fabless semiconductor company, has announced the launch of secure low power RISC-V microcontrollers (MCUs) that address consumer products and automotive electronics for body control and driving control.

According to the company, these MCUs offer better cost and power efficiency than competitive MCU alternatives. Additional MCUs will come in the next few months designed for specific customers creating a product family dedicated to the automotive industry.

Cortus is now offering customers and partners direct access to Cortus silicon or its expertise in mixed-signal ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit)/SoC (System-on-Chip) design for turnkey solutions using Cortus’ large IP portfolio including processors (Cortus ISA and RISC-V ISA), digital, analogue, RF and security building blocks.

All Cortus products are fully supported by a comprehensive Software Development Environment.

The RISC-V architecture is now being selected by a growing number of SoC designers and is forecast to grow exponentially in the coming years.

Cortus has sought to position itself as a RISC-V leader offering solutions from a simple MCU to a high-end, high performance multi-core SoC. During the past six years, the company has designed and continues to design various RISC-V solutions for different customers and applications such as Satellite, Civil Nuclear, Security, Banking, Wireless, IoT, Automotive and Edge Computing.
