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 make the design simpler, faster, and less expensive. The company was created in 2014 with the mission of democratizing processor design by utilizing our own CodAL architecture description language.

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 and believe in the great potential of RISC-V. 

We're passionate about RISC-V processors. If you are, too - do not hesitate to apply :)
