RISC-V Processors


Codasip’s RISC-V based processors (Codix-Bk) leverage the rich ecosystem of software and hardware enabled by the extensible, RISC-V Instruction-Set Architecture (ISA) Standard, while retaining the incredible flexibility of all Codix Cores.

“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

Proven processor implementations


Codasip currently offers two different base versions of the RISC-V architecture, one inspired by the ZScale, and one inspired by Rocket. Both are fully compliant with the RISC-V specification, and both are completely customizable.

In addition to the base processor implementation, Codasip has standard support for the optional instruction layers defined by the current RISC-V specification.

Completely customizable


Like all Codix Cores, Codix-Bk variants are fully customizable to the needs of your design. Changes can be made by Codasip as part of the standard deliverable, or by your own developers using our unique IP Generation Toolkit (Codasip Studio).

Need a single cycle MAC, specialized Crypto functions, or support for non-standard data types – no problem. Better yet, thanks to the extensible nature of the RISC-V ISA, all tailored cores remain RISC-V compliant, allowing you to leverage the growing SW Ecosystem.

State-of-the-art Commercial SDK Support


Codix-Bk cores are supported by the same industry-leading SDK as other Codix Cores. This SDK is based on LLVM, GNU and other open standards, but is optimized for your unique processor configuration. Better yet, it is backed by Codasip’s comprehensive support.

Open, Extensible, Industry supported


Codasip is proud to be a founding member of the RISC-V Foundation, joining industry leaders Google, Oracle, HP, AMD, Nvidia, and many others.

The power of RISC-V is that it defines the ISA on which healthy HW and SW ecosystems can develop, allowing each vendor to deliver their own unique value.

RISC-V is a natural fit to Codasip since it extends the ecosystem available to our customers, allowing us to maximise the value of our products within that ecosystem while minimising the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for our customers.
