NXP General Manager said that NXP has been in the market with Cortex-M3 microcontrollers since October 2008. In reality, different NXP sources confirmed that no parts will available before Q3 2009. Which one is the truth? Did anybody actually see a real working part yet?
ARM stresses the importance of code-compatibility and development infrastructure for its Cortex-M0, but it was not first with a 12,000 gate processor core. XAP compact processor cores, offered by Cambridge Consultants since the mid-1990s, are present in more than one billion chips, the company claims. XAP versus Cortex-M0 what do you think?
