General-Purpose, Deterministic 32-Bit Performance
The Cortex-M processor series is designed to enable developers to create cost-sensitive and power-constrained solutions for a broad range of devices. The optimal balance between area, performance, and power makes Cortex-M3 ideal for products such as microcontrollers, automotive body systems, and wireless networking and sensors.
Smart Home Devices
Increasingly smart devices and advanced levels of interaction demand 32-bit performance, without compromising on cost or power. Cortex-M3 is used across many smart home devices, providing the perfect balance of performance, cost, and ease of programming required in smart home devices.
Internet of Things (IoT) Applications
The Cortex-M3 processor provides the ideal balance between performance and power consumption to enable a range of Internet-connected devices.
