Our mission has been to provide proven, low-risk IP cores, under simple and flexible licensing terms, coupled with outstanding support. The years of work we have done to perfect IP reuse, improve IP quality standards, and refine sales and business practices yield a product line and a partner network that offer you a better IP experience, today and in the future. Proven, Low-Risk IP Our goal is to maximize IP benefits for our customers by delivering high-quality, easy-to-use, cost-effective solutions to real system development challenges. CAST quality standards are high, and all our IP undergoes rigorous verification and testing before it gets to you. We use industry-standard verification methodologies, develop and test prototypes, participate in industry collaboration plugfests, and more to ensure proper functioning and smooth integration. Our practices have been extensively tested and proven, as we have helped thousands of customers ship billions of units in hundreds of application areas. Simple, Flexible Licensing We help you get to work quickly, with fine-tuned project options and licensing terms that ensure smooth legal sign-off. Most CAST IP is available royalty-free, and is extremely cost-effective. Outstanding Support CAST IP comes with some of the best customer support in the industry.
