Zilog Inc. has extended its MCU market strategy by licensing the ARM Cortex-M3 processor to develop a new family of 32bit-based solutions. The agreement accelerates the roll out of Zilog's new family of 32bit solutions for embedded and portable applications that demand high performance, small form factor and low power consumption.

Zilog has long been a leading supplier of 8bit and 16bit MCU SoC solutions. Adding a new family of 32bit MCU-based SoC solutions will greatly expand the reach of its product portfolio. It will now provide design engineers more choice and flexibility at the right price points for the broadest possible set of embedded applications.

"With the addition of our new 32bit MCU-based solutions to our product portfolio, we can expeditiously increase design flexibility, offering design engineers feature-rich 32bit MCU-based solutions that provide class leading performance and an advantageous value proposition," said Darin Billerbeck, president and CEO of Zilog.

Zilog is no stranger to ARM. Three years ago Zilog licensed the ARM9 microprocessor family for its new Zatara family of 32bit ASSP that targeted the rapidly growing secure transactions/PoS market.

"We are delighted to report that we are already seeing immediate success with our new ARM processor-based, 32bit MCU solutions where the full potential and range of our new 8-32bit MCU portfolio can be clearly seen in the context of our remote control business," said Keith Bladen, VP of marketing and general manager for the 32bit ASSP, secure transaction group, Zilog.
