In today’s ARM-oriented MCU development environment, 8-bit devices might look outdated, but looks are deceiving. When coupled with modern process technologies and advanced mixed-signal peripherals, 8-bit performance on most control tasks can match or exceed many other CPU architectures, while providing improvements in speed, design time, size and integration. With the enhanced peripherals, these 8-bit machines can also offer a cost-effective solution that might preclude the need to move to a higher bus-width device, thus saving development time and money. Learn about innovative, small form factor 8-bit MCU solutions that cut cost without sacrificing on features or performance.
