NXP has signed a long term subscription licensing agreement with ARM for the Cortex-M Series of microcontrollers. The agreement also allows NXP to work with ARM to develop and expand its microcontroller roadmap.

NXP says it has shipped more than 1billion ARM based processors and now offers more than 250 mcu variants. It is also the only major microcontroller vendor with a roadmap based exclusively on 32bit ARM processors.

"NXP has reached a major milestone in its commitment to deliver the broadest range of choice available for customers migrating from 8/16bit architectures to 32bit ARM mcus," said Geoff Lees, pictured, general manager of NXP's microcontroller product line. "This strategic licensing agreement gives us the ability to continue breaking new ground with ARM on the future of the 32bit mcu landscape."

Mike Inglis, general manager of ARM's processors division, added: "We look forward to working closely with NXP as it introduces even more innovative designs and enhancements for the MCU market."
