Armv8-M extends Cortex-M architecture to support coprocessor extensions. This extension enables powerful specialization possibilities, which bring even wider applicability for Cortex-M cores. The combination of Arm’s ecosystem, coupled with the possibility of application-optimized hardware raises the bar on what is possible.
This session presents the new DSP Coprocessor offered by NXP’s upcoming Cortex-M33-based MCU platforms. We will explore the newly introduced coprocessor interface available in Armv8-M cores. It will also show how the combination of this interface with the Arm Ecosystem can allow extending the Arm Cortex-M core to be a more capable processing unit for DSP tasks.
