Hardware, Embedded Systems The Cortex -M0+ architecture is designed to provide chip-makers with the means to build microcontrollers that require "ultra low power" but are capable of 32-bit processing. Arm says it went back to the drawing board to create the new processor cores which measure 1mm by 1mm in size. It says the microcontrollers should draw around a third less energy than their predecessors, which only offered 8 and 16-bit capabilities.

It would be nice is some chip company could put out a 23Pin ARM so I could replace the ATMega328's that I currently use in my projects ;)

Look at the LPC-1100 series from NXP - it sounds like something you would find useful.

Thanks for the tip, I have already used the LPC1768 and am looking at trying out the LPC11U24... But you can't beat the form factor of the 23pin DIP for hobby work ;)
