Inside the Microcontroller: Advanced Technology from the World's #1 Microcontroller Supplier
Contrary to popular belief, not all microcontrollers are the same. Underlying technology and design methodologies lead to very different performance characteristics. Industrial and consumer designers can gain a competitive advantage by leveraging microcontroller architectures that have been optimized for efficiency.
Modern embedded applications require high performance for advanced real-time operation, making the CPU core, embedded flash, and interrupt handler critical aspects of the microcontroller design. Increasing use of signal processing makes DSP hardware and floating point math implementation important performance factors as well.
Making the designers task even more challenging are the tight cost and power budgets which also must be met. Architectures which adopt advanced low power fabrication processes and low power design methodologies, while providing high levels of system integration and high quality levels, enable designers to solve today's complex application challenges.
