RISC-V based processors domain



They say, “Designing microprocessors is hard, expensive, and takes years.” But does it have to? We say, “No.”


Codasip was founded on a simple belief – we could bring together the brilliance of microprocessor architects and software engineers and capture it in tools that made design simpler, faster, and less expensive. The company was created in 2014 with the mission of democratizing processor design. Nowadays Codasip is a leading supplier of processing solutions for IC designers, offering products based on open standards such as the RISC-V ISA, LLVM, and UVM. We are a founding member of RISC-V International (formerly RISC-V Foundation) and we were the first company to offer a commercial RISC-V IP core in 2015. 


With more than 100 employees and offices in Europe, the US, and China, we are constantly open for talents who want to work on cutting-edge processor technologies, believe in the great potential of RISC-V, and are ready to shape a new era of the processor cores. 


Our Verification and IP Design Engineers are located in our R&D centers in Brno (Czech Republic), Villeneuve-Loubet (France), and Munich. Currently, we would like to strengthen our team in France in the Sophia Antipolis area where we have our newly opened and cozy office with a sea view and parking lots. Moreover, it is a truly collaborative environment with a highly professional and open-minded team. One of them is our Director of Verification - Philippe Luc.
