Low-Power Microcontroller with TrustZone Security
The Cortex-M processor series is designed to enable developers to create cost-sensitive and power-constrained solutions for a broad range of devices. Designed to meet the needs of tomorrow’s smart and connected embedded applications, Cortex-M23 is the smallest and lowest-power microcontroller with TrustZone security, making it the ideal processor for applications where software isolation and software security are required.
Bringing TrustZone security to even the smallest and lowest-powered devices, the Cortex-M23 processor enables programmers to achieve software isolation easily, and create the security foundation required for modern devices.
The Cortex-M23 allows developers to optimize power usage for specific applications with built-in, low-power features. With three highly optimized low-power modes, the processor conserves energy to match processing demands.
The Arm Corstone reference designs are a pre-verified subsystem and system IP that significantly accelerates the development of secure SoCs with the Cortex-M23 processor.
Internet of Things (IoT) Nodes
Energy-harvesting wireless sensor nodes use ambient energy as a power source where batteries or cables are not viable. Superior energy efficiency and the built-in TrustZone security make Cortex-M23 the ideal processor for use in maintenance-free, energy-harvesting IoT nodes and smart sensors.
