Spansion expands further into microcontroller space by licensing ARM cores

Spansion is entering the embedded space by licensing wide range of ARM processors for its current and future product lineup aimed at embedded applications in the automotive, industrial and consumer markets. Specific ARM cores licensed by Spansion include the Cortex-M0+, Cortex-M4, Cortex-M3, Cortex-R5, Cortex-R4, ARM9 and ARM7 processors. Very recently Spansion has acquired microcontroller product line from Fujitsu to enter into embedded space.

"This licensing agreement with ARM simply underscores Spansion's ongoing commitment to support the embedded design community with the innovative MCUs they rely upon," said Saied Tehrani, senior vice president and CTO of Spansion. "ARM's energy-efficient processor cores are well suited for Spansion's embedded market strategy, which is built around our collective expertise in Flash memory, microcontrollers and SoC solutions."

"ARM is pleased that Spansion has chosen to continue to utilize the Cortex-R and Cortex-M series processors in their MCU product portfolio for a broad range of applications," said Noel Hurley, vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Processor Division, ARM. "Spansion's MCU and SoC products, based on their leading Flash technology and integrated with ARM processors, will provide exciting and differentiated new products for embedded systems."
