Corporate Fact Sheet

Business

Developing, distributing, and supporting semiconductor intellectual property (IP) products that reduce costs and enable quicker time to market for producers of electronic products.

Approach
Focus on popular and standards-based IP cores. Offer both competitive prices and the best available customer support. Avoid debt, operate lean, exploit the Web, outsource services, and employ international development partners.
History

CAST was formed in 1993 with an initial focus on intellectual property in the form of simulation models. The company evolved as design methodologies changed, and began offering IP cores in 1996.

Organization

With its lean operation model, CAST has a nearly flat organization of mostly design engineers; outsources most non-engineering functions; uses a distributed office network; and teams with international development and distribution partners who are experts in their respective areas. The company is US-based and has a development branch in the Czech Republic.

Management
Hal Barbour, Chairman of the Board 
Nikos Zervas, Chief Executive Officer

Meredith Lucky, VP Sales
Markets

CAST reduces time to market for electronics companies engaged in three main applications: development of system-on-chip (SoC) designs and using IP cores for nonproprietary portions of the product; enhancement of existing printed circuit board products and their consolidation to chips; and extension of life for existing products through obsolete parts replacement.

Channels

Direct sales; local sales partners in regions around the world (see list on the website).

Products

IP Cores — broad range of over 100 standard protocols and expert functions for custom and structured ASICs and for FPGAs, including 8-, 16-, and 32-bit processors, bus and network controllers, image and video compression, encryption functions, serial communications devices, peripheral controllers, and basic logic blocks. Subsystem IP — pre-integrated cores and essential software, including application platforms and processor system platforms.

Services

IP Integration — Custom modifications and contract development of IP cores and platform IP products.

Customers

Over 2,000 products sold to more than 800 customers—including telecommunications, automotive, computer, industrial control, military, and other electronics producers—with millions of shipping product units.
