LeadingUI chooses Cortus APS1 Processor for Touchscreen Applications

Feb 07, 2013

Montpellier, France and Anyang-City, Korea - 7th February, 2013. Cortus, a technology leader in cost effective, silicon efficient, 32-bit processor IP, and fabless semiconductor company LeadingUI, announce that they are working together to offer touchscreen designs based on Cortus’ APS1 processor core.
Cortus S.A. licenses a range of 32-bit processor cores for embedded systems. The cores provide licensees with a scalable choice in embedded computational performance and silicon area to meet a wide variety of application needs.
“Modern touchscreen applications require silicon efficiency and very low power”, says Sang Hyun Han, Chief Technology Officer of LeadingUI, “The Cortus APS1 with its tiny silicon footprint is ideal for our user interface applications”. He explains, “Despite its small size, the core has adequate computational performance for our gesture recognition algorithms and we benefit from ultra-low power consumption”.
“We are delighted that LeadingUI has chosen APS1 to power their touchscreen products”, says Michael Chapman, CEO and President of Cortus, “By using our 32-bit core they can have a proven and rapid software development cycle by using a high level language”.
The Cortus family of APS processors starts with the world’s smallest 32-bit core, the APS1, and goes up to the floating point FPS6. All cores interface to Cortus’ peripherals including Ethernet 10/100 MAC, USB 2.0 Device and USB 2.0 OTG via the efficient APS bus. They also share the simple vectored interrupt structure which ensures rapid, real time interrupt response, with low software overhead.
The APS toolchain and IDE (for C and C++) is available to licensees free of charge, and which can be customised and branded for final customer use. Ports of various RTOSs are available such as FreeRTOS, Micrium ?C/OSII.
About Cortus S.A.:
Cortus S.A. is the cost/performance leader for 32 bit processor IP for systems on chip (SoC). Cortus uses a modern RISC architecture optimised for the new wave of low power, intelligent applications including the Internet of Things (IoT). The Cortus processor family comprises the entry level APS1, the energy efficient APS3R, the high performance APS5 and the floating point FPS6. Integrated circuits containing Cortus cores have been manufactured in high volumes for a wide range of applications including automotive, imaging, M2M controllers, secure microcontrollers, sensors, SIM cards, smart metering and wireless
