The US company headquartered in Woodcliff Lake, New York, develops, sells, and supports semiconductor IP (intellectual property) for electronic system designers. This includes the CAN IP core by Fraunhofer IPMS, Germany. Since 2003, 70 of these CAN cores have been sold. The support of CAN FD compliant with ISO 11898-1:2015 increased the business. Last year, Cast implemented the improved CAN protocol in 25 FPGA designs. This is about one third of the total business made in the last 13 years. The range of applications cover automotive devices – from transmission controllers to diagnostics units – as well as products in aerospace, industrial, and rail vehicle industries. In March 2017, the company will exhibit its products and services at the Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany.
