Akaria Standard Processors “NS Family” is RISC-V-based general-purpose CPUs that have several line-up 32-bit cores to 64-bit cores.
The NS Family is a highly efficient processor equipped with functional safety mechanisms that comply with ISO 26262 ASIL D and various other standards, and supports customers in terms of performance, efficiency, cost, quality, and support.
[ Performance, Efficiency ]
The NS Family is designed around NSITEXE’s renowned processor architects, and although the ISA is based on the open RISC-V architecture, the implementation of the ISA has been developed using a sophisticated micro-architecture that is highly efficient, based on many years of experience.
[ Cost ]
The open specification RISC-V base allows users to freely choose from a large number of development tools and software. In addition, a flexible licensing structure tailored to the customer’s project provides cost benefits.
[ Quality, Support]
We provide functional safety mechanisms and high quality that meet in-vehicle quality and can support ISO 26262 ASIL D. We also design all CPUs in-house, so we can provide quick support during customer development. In addition, we design all CPUs in-house, so we can provide prompt support during customer development.
The current NS Family includes four series: NS1, 3, 5, and 7.
The NS1 series is the most compact CPU in the NS Family with small size and low power consumption; the NS3 series is a 32-bit CPU for highly efficient control applications; the NS5 series is a high-end 32-bit CPU for embedded systems; the NS7 series is the most powerful 64-bit CPU in the current NS The NS7 series is the most powerful 64-bit CPU in the current NS family.
The NS Family provides functional safety addition to the basic functions of each processor, .
In addition, floating-point unit (FPU) and vector processor options are also available.
The abundant lineup and options enable a wide range of applications from industrial to automotive.
Akaria NS BSP (Board Support Package), a free evaluation environment for the NS Family, is available.
The Akaria NS BSP provides the NS Family FPGA bitstream, evaluation software, and development tool chain by free of charge.
