I found some press releases, they go focus on bigger big-little

http://www.eetasia.com/ART_8800687053_499489_NT_b3b33d06.HTM

and Linaro

but not sure if it's A9...

@Junko: maybe you ask the foundry behind Spansion's eCT Flash macro if they will and/or can license this technology to the rest of the world?

@alex_m1: I think there are several foundries offering 40nm embedded Flash in the near to not to far future. I am not aware about the exact conditions though.

@Junko,

I haven't heard anybody licensing any 40nm embedded flash. I believe currently only renesas offers this option, but my guess is that even if it does happen, it would be a closely guarded secret.

If i was to guess , i would guess NXP is preparing/experimenting for such a future. It's LPC4350/LPC4370 multi-core microcontrollers with large ram and external flash at a reasonable cost looks like an experiment in designing interesting microcontrollers when you aren't so limited by flash the and amount of gates. It's also sort of an insurance policy: if they won't have ability to integrate the flash when using newer processes, so they'll be very good at integrating cheap external flash memories.

Fuse, your past influences how your future unfolds...
GermanInTI   11/27/2013 1:20:33 AM
Only low profile people criticizes their past to validate the future, now I see this Vice President Takeshi Fuse is one of them. He was once the president of MCU group in Fujitsu when I met him two years ago, he must have had the power to convert his MCU team in a global way. Now he says under Fujitsu Semiconductor, "We had not been able to crack either the North American or European markets very well.", which means he was not able to crack.lol Now he is Spansion and became a superman

I had more trust to Fujitsu MCU than the Chapter 11 Spansion's, I can only laugh to the comments...

Small advise, not only does dissing how you got to where you are dishonor your past and make for some negative juju, it weighs on your transformational process. How you regard your past influences how your future unfolds. pretty complex!

Cortex A9 ?

What about bigger processors from Fujitsu, like those based on Cortex A9 ?

@junko renesas offers 40nm embedded flash mcu, and licenses the embedded flash, so far no takers for licensing AFAIK. And I remember seeing some pdf claiming ect is the cheapest embedded flash in the market.

eCT in other embedded MCUs?

Forgive my ignorance here...but I wonder if there are other MCU vendors also looking at Spansion's eCT? Or now that Spancion has MCUs and competes with them, they won't do it?

Life after Fujitsu Semi

I was in Yokohama and met Mr. Takashi Fuse for the first time.
His candid and open-minded comments have made me realize that those who moved to Spansion from Fujitsu Semi are indeed energized.

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.
