What's their strategy ?

Great story Junko.

I wonder thought: up unto now spansion talked a lot about making microcontrollers with large flash as a unique thing they could do.

But now they sell the hard part for everybody: large flash with low pin count , small size, fast, fit for automtoive. Sound great.

Does this mean they won't invest the large sums of money required to make an mcu with a large flash on a single die ?

Is the strategy is all about controlling the memory interface and with that profoiting from memory and licensing and or selling a  bundle of mcu+flash chips?

Or is it something else ?
