The RISC-V CPU
Catapult CPUs are designed for various market applications and also next-generation control, compute and heterogeneous compute needs.
Catapult at a glance
Built on RISC-V
Supported and tested
As part of Imagination’s heterogeneous compute solution, Catapult CPUs offer full hardware, software and debug support for SoCs using Imagination IP. This includes the market-leading Imagination GPU, AI and Ethernet cores. This allows SoC manufacturers to increase energy efficiency, free up system resources and improve the performance of their designs.
Highly configurable design
The automotive cores are systematically developed to ISO 26262 standards and provide a range of CPU solutions for different integrity levels.
The new CPUs are based on industry-proven security concepts. This design enables SoC manufacturers to attain the highest level of security and certification required by their target market.
Catapult SDK and Catapult Studio
Based on Visual Studio Code, Catapult Studio has been enhanced to meet the needs of embedded developers on RISC-V. With a seamless launch and debug on remote targets, plus some unique data and system visualisation tools. It is available for Windows, Ubuntu, CentOS, and MacOS.
Catapult CPUs are also delivered with both fast and performance models. Which offer interactive debugging and are compatible with the gem5 simulator, unlocking simulation environments for enhanced power and energy-efficiency testing.
