CORTUS, DOLPHIN Integration and RAISONANCE form a partnership for the cores of price-sensitive high-performance SoC

DOLPHIN Integration proudly announces their partnership with CORTUS extending to high-end Controllers their cooperation with RAISONANCE.

The Provider of Virtual Component of Silicon IP thus extends its microcontrollers range, from the legacy i8051 already enriched as Flip8051/251, to the APS3-2051: it enables a cost-effective move toward the 32-bit microcontroller market.

Initial Applications are aimed at the High Resolution and Wide Reach Industrial markets with multi-domain technologies: MEMS… as well as the nascent market for migrating Smart Card applications upwards.

Their partnership enables the three companies to enhance their offering of Platforms for System-on-Chip Development, Migration and Debug: indeed, the Cortus world-tiniest 32-bit mostly RISC processor, now is enriched with the “PRemier Interactive Development Environment” PRIDE™ which benefits from the patented Real-Time debugger BIRD™ and the SUCCESS™ cosimulator.


Cortus S.A. is a privately owned French company developing compact, ultra low power 32-bit RISC processors for embedded applications. Our IP provides the flexibility of an efficient soft core matched with a specialized instruction set extension through high performance concurrent coprocessors. Products come with a set of peripherals and a customized version of the GNU C and C++ compiler and tool chain running on Linux, Windows XP and many Unix varieties.
