Google helped find a more complete chip-analysis here (needs translate) http://www.elektroniknet.de/bauelemente/news/article/85180/0/Neue_Infineon-Mikrocontroller_setzen_auf_ARM_und_innovative_Peripherie/ and a road map here - just Google : XMC4000_PressConference_23-01-2012.pdf Hints that 1e@10k claim could be ? XMC4100: qfn48/80MHz/64kBF(ecc)/20kBR/USB/CAN/4USI/CCU4/CCU8/PWM/ADC/DAC

For a part that samples soon, this has very little real information. I did find this : ["The XMC4000 series has a cpu subsystem, dsp functionality, a floating point unit, a fast flash memory with 22ns read time and error correction code, large sram and extended peripheral functions. These include new timer modules; up to four parallel 12bit a/d converters with a sampling rate of 70ns and a conversion time of 500ns; up to two 12bit d/a converters, up to four high resolution PWM channels (150ps); and integrated delta-sigma demodulator modules and touch button modules. "] and in their FAQ they claim this is NOT Automotive applications. (yet have multiple CAN bus?) No prices, apart from a cryptic 1e to 7e indicator. I wonder what 1e gets you ?

Lots of m4 options are available now. The difference is really going to come down to power mode and/or peripheral function differentiation. Additionally, the support for higher level functions to easy peripheral programming and firmware IP for functions like motor control will make a big difference. Lets see more about these topics in similar product announcements going forward.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
