Overview: 
As embedded system projects get more complex, designers are hitting the ceiling of what is possible in 8-bit MCUs and have a need to move to 32-bit architectures. Designers have a preconceived notion that moving to a more powerful architecture will be difficult, but in fact, this transition does not have to create any headaches. Certain microcontrollers, like Cypress’s PSoC platform, have ecosystems that allow for a simple and quick transition between 8-bit and 32-bit designs. This webinar will discuss the high level benefits of moving from 8-bit MCUs to 32-bit MCUs, some of the road blocks that designers can face, and how Cypress’s PSoC platform makes this transition pain free.
Walk away points:
  • Speed the transition from 8 to 32 bits
  • Quickly adapt to change
  • Get to market faster
  • Deal with analog complexities
  • Protect your design IP

Richard York, Director of Product Marketing, ARM Processor Division, ARM
Richard York is responsible for the team marketing ARM embedded and microcontroller CPU products including the Cortex-M and Cortex™-R series. He is also responsible for the overall embedded roadmap for these products and also for specialized derivatives such as the ARM SecurCore® processor family. Richard has worked at ARM for over fourteen years, during which time he has been closely involved with the design of ARM7TDMI® core and was an architect in the ARM advanced research and development group. He is also the principal architect of the ARM RealTrace debug system.
Before joining ARM Richard worked in the Amulet group at the University of Manchester, researching asynchronous implementations of the ARM architecture.
