ARM® Processors

C2000™ C28x + ARM® Cortex™-M3 Microcontrollers

C28x + ARM® Cortex™-M3 dual-subsystem MCUs that enable connectivity without compromise

Concerto brings together connectivity and control by combining a ARM Cortex-M3™ core with C2000’s C28x core on to one device. With C28x + ARM Cortex-M3, applications such as solar inverters and industrial control can keep the benefits of separating the communication and control portions while maintaining a single-chip solution.

In addition, C28x + ARM Cortex-M3 enables safety certifications in your system via enhanced hardware and safety features.
