Toshiba Corp. has licensed ARM's ultra-low-power ARM Cortex-M0 processor to complement its TX03 Cortex-M3 processor-based microcontroller series.

ARM said in a statement that Toshiba, which has been an ARM partner since 1999, chose the Cortex-M0 as it "offered significant technical advantages, a broad ecosystem software development tools support and a future-proof solution through upwards compatibility with the Cortex-M family."

The Cortex-M0 processor is the smallest 32-bit ARM processor and consumes the least power. It features a low gate count and binary upwards compatibility with the ARM Cortex-M3 processor, allowing legacy 8-bit microcontroller embedded applications to skip 16-bit devices.
