Have you already decided to go with the Atmel SAMDxx parts or are you 
just looking for any old Cortex M0? I've done a little breakout done for 
the STM32F030F4 here:


The parts are really cheap ($0.57 ea in 20qty from Future) and they've 
got lots of useful features. I did a little DIY Euro-Rack module based 
on this part and a SPI DAC here:


I've got wavetable oscillators, drum voices and LPC speech running on it.

I got a few of the Atmel SAMD21 parts a while back but the learning 
curve between them and the STM32 parts I'm used to is pretty steep so I 
shelved them. I suppose I should try again at some point.
