The demand for increased integration, device flexibility and programmability (both in-field and by the designed) is driving a move towards incorporating a microcontroller into mixed-signal designs. The 8-bit microprocessors suffer from out-dated programming models, primitive development tools and poor code-density, leading to the requirement for large on-chip memories. This webinar introduces the 32-bit ARM® Cortex-M0. As the world's smallest 32-bit processor, the Cortex-M0 enables replacement of state machines or 8-bit microcontrollers with a modern, energy-efficient processor supported by professional-quality tools and with very high code-density, minimizing on-chip memory costs. When designing for low power, the physical implementation is of great importance and we will describe how the ARM physical design libraries enable ultra-low power design. In this talk you will gain an understanding of the Cortex-M0 hardware architecture, implementation configurability and debug capabilities. We anticipate this to be a popular webinar so we recommend that you register now.

Walk away points:

  • Gain technical knowledge of ARM Cortex-M0
  • Integrating an ARM processor is easier than you think
  • Find out how the ARM Cortex-M0 minimizes on-chip memory cost in mixed-signal designs
  • Learn why using ARM physical IP delivers greater value by significantly reducing area and power
