What does faster mean really in this contest?  Should we consider ARM7 and ARM9 as microcontrollers, in which case this Microchip's product would pale into insignificance? We should consider performance per Watt, performance per Dollar among other factors such as software eco-systems, security of supply etc. It's not just about an arbitrary CoreMark number alas....

@RejithK: How come this be the fastest 32 bit MCU at 200MHz??

I'll ask the folks at Microchip to comment

@Sanjib: I would like to evaluate how the DSP engine along with 159 additional DSP-centric instructions helps in improving the performance of the MIPS microAptiv Core.

Let me know when you've done that evaluation ... it would make a great article :-)

Re: Great MCU but really like the Harmony story too

@Patrick: I was also excited by MPLAB Harmony effort that Microchip co-announced with the 'MZ 32.

I agree -- in fact that's right at the top of my list of columns to write and post -- it comes just after fighting all of the fires that are surrounding me :-)

Microchip's new 32-bit connectivity MCU might well be targeted for the IoT applications where power is not a problem. The features look interesting. I would like to evaluate how the DSP engine along with 159 additional DSP-centric instructions helps in improving the performance of the MIPS microAptiv Core.

It certainly isn't the fastest 32-bit MCU. While it might outperform Cortex-M4 when not using floating point, it has caches and doesn't run from flash. So it should be compared to Cortex-R4/R5, which run at much higher frequencies (Samsung SSDs use 3 at 400MHz) and have better IPC as well.

I am glad that Microchip has actually started to do something with their 32bit line of products.  FOr the longest time, they were not really all that great compared to their dsPIC line of products.  I still am hoping that they might decide to come out with something that has a FPU on it.  As for their claim as the fastest 32bit device, I will have to dig into that a bit more.

you better watch out max! You'll end up in the never ending cycle of persuing the next biggest/fastest thing and never even get that bot off the ground!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
