32-bit MCU's are starting to be used everywhere as things get more and more smart - NEST thermostat, for example. Just about everything these days would like to talk over the internet, or at least an internal network. This is much easier on the 32-bit devices. Tom http://www.mitydsp.com

ErrantOne, the 32-bit sleep state may not save you power, but you may save power by the 32-bit MCU needing to be awake for less time (ie, use fewer clock cycles) than an 8-bit in order to accomplish the task. With less on-time the average power goes down, even if the operating power of the 32-bit device is greater than the 8-bit.

4-bit microcontroller, I never use it. Which field it can be used? in children's toy? Now, more and more project start to use 32-bit MCU, because the embedded linux operating sysyem need to port on it. The performance of 4/8/16 is not enough to support.

Wonder if 4-bit and 64-bit could coexist. http://www.embeddedinsights.com/channels/2010/11/24/are-you-or-would-you-consider-using-a-4-bit-microcontroller/

FWIW numbers below. Looks like all prices drop but 32bit show normal price curve (volume up/price down) while 4/8/16 show just market deterioration (flat volume, accelerating price drop). sales(M$) 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 4/8bit 4141 5545 4647 4368 4412 16bit 3020 3841 4648 4276 4190 32bit 3956 5780 6422 6524 6916 shipment(M) 4/8bit 4768 6913 5911 6343 6744 16bit 3982 5298 6528 7227 7870 32bit 1131 1818 2451 3700 4457 ASP 4/8bit 0.87 0.80 0.79 0.69 0.65 16bit 0.76 0.72 0.71 0.59 0.53 32bit 3.50 3.18 2.62 1.76 1.55

As devices get smaller it is sometimes more about electric power rather than number of bits. A few microamps saved here and there is important. If i can get 32bits and the power use of 8bits, then I'm interested. As it is, MCUs spend alot of time sleeping, depending on application. Tell me how 32bit MCU sleep state saves me more power......

The data and the article do not align: 16-bit ASP has declined from .71 in 2011 to a projected .53 in 2013. This is in contrast to 8-bit ASP of .65 and 32-bit ASP of 1.53 in 2013. At 41% of the forecasted unit volume, this is driving the ASP erosion.
