Cortus to join forces with SST at Embedded World

Cortus is combining its silicon efficient, ultra low power 32 bit microcontroller cores with SST’s low power, ultra high endurance embedded flash non-volatile memory (NVM) technology, for a demonstration at Embedded World in Nuremberg later this month.
Today’s embedded SoC applications such as SIM cards, Near Field Communications (NFC), Bluetooth LE, automotive sensors and smart meters all require a combination of a microcontroller core and flash memory. Such applications require minimising both power dissipation and silicon area. Cortus says its APS3 offers the smallest silicon footprint and power dissipation on the market for 32 bit processor cores, while SST SuperFlash technology provides a compact, low power embedded flash memory solution with ultra high endurance.Cortus offers high performance 32-bit processor cores designed specifically for embedded systems. The APS3 features a tiny silicon footprint (same size as an 8051), very low power consumption, high code density and high performance (up to 1.67 DMIPS/MHz). The ecosystem around the Cortus processors includes a full development environment (for C and C++), commonly used peripherals, bus bridges to ensure easy interfacing to other IP and system support and functions such as cache and memory management units. The APS3 processor core is currently in volume production in a range of products from security applications to ultra low power wireless designs.
SST Superflash memory technology is the most widely licensed flash NVM technology today, and is commonly used in microcontrollers and automotive and smartcard devices. In 2010 alone, over four billion devices worldwide were manufactured using this technology.
