ARM has reveals the availability of ARM Cortex-M0 processor via the ARM DesignStart online IP portal that aims to accelerate the proliferation of the technology in university curriculum and research projects.

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.

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 licence available when customer products ship at high volumes. Although it has limitations in power optimisations 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, it 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.

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