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.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
