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.

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
