About Arm CoreLink SSE-050 subsystem

Based around the Cortex-M3 processor, the subsystem is ready to connect your external peripherals to design your custom solution. It is also modifiable, so that you can tune it to your needs without having to build your system from the ground up.

In order to get better performance, lower power and improved integration, you can choose to connect it to an embedded Flash. If you want to follow that route and are using TSMC 55ULP technology, you can even use the CoreLink SSE-100 subsystem, which includes the necessary Flash Cache and Flash Controller. You also have the option of connecting the code interface in any other way, even integrating the subsystem as part of a larger system. 

Similarly, its expansion ports allow you to have a very high level of flexibility. This makes the CoreLink SSE-050 subsystem a great start for your next SoC.
