I am trying to figure out what's going on with the flash MCU market out there.

If you are looking to use 40nm embedded Flash MCU, what do you see as your option today?

Junko,

Do you have any idea what kind of market share the two companies have?

@Junko: One interesting company in the flash market today is infineon which has 65nm flash microcontrollers and is working on 40nm flash.

In contrary with the other companies you mentioned , they use this technology to enable manufacturing of low end microcontrollers using advanced processes , which can offer lower prices and unique capabilities like alot of ram and interesting hardfware units. For example , their xmc1000 family seems close to unbeatable for low end industrial microcontrollers,and that's without 40nm. It would be interesting to see what would they offer once they have access to 40nm.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
