The Cortex®‑M33 processor is a low gate count, highly energy efficient processor that is intended for microcontroller and deeply embedded applications. The processor is based on the Armv8‑M architecture and is primarily for use in environments where security is an important consideration.
The interfaces that the processor supports include:
The processor has optional:
The processor is highly configurable and is intended for a wide range of high-performance, deeply embedded applications that require fast interrupt response features.
The following figure shows the processor in a typical system.
