ARM has announced the availability of the ARM Cortex-M0 processor via the ARM DesignStart online IP portal. The special configuration of the processor is designed for universities, start-ups and ad-hoc technology teams looking to teach or prototype with the popular ARM Cortex-M0 processor. This online access model aims to accelerate the proliferation of the technology in university curriculum and research projects.

The download comes as a pre-configured Verilog netlist to approved educational institutions and companies with no initial payment necessary, with an upgrade path to a full ARM Cortex-M0 processor license available when customer products ship at high volumes. Although it has limitations in power optimizations and feature configurations relative to the full ARM Cortex-M0 processor, it is fully software compatible and enables designers to create manufacturable designs.

As the processor is a fixed configuration of the standard ARM Cortex-M0 which has the support of compiler tools, RTOS and fabric IP available from ARM and members of the ARM Connected Community ecosystem, including the Keil MDK-ARM development tools and RL-ARM RTOS and middleware libraries.

ARM Cortex-M0 Processor: The chip is a compact and low power 32-bit ARM processor providing exceptional low power, small gate count and code footprint. It is suitable for ultra low power MCU and mixed signal applications, driving performance and efficiency in an 8/16-bit footprint.
