trying to wrap my mind around this mcu

I was trying to wrap my mind around this MCU and figured that perhaps it was for use with the new wraparound displays that phones are sporting.  Silicon?  No, sillycon putty.

@krisi: interesting interpretation of the FM acronym...

I might have known you would have a comment about that (LOL)

Did I ask you if you are planning on going to EE Live! 2014?

interesting interpretation of the FM acronym, flexible micontrollers...I think 99% people think frequency modulation...I would think every microcontroller is flexible by definition...and intersting enough they make 700 of them, so they are not that flexible after all!

@ip2design: Thanks Max. That means that CPU throuput is far less critical than connectivity.

Well... I guess it sort of depends. Like many people, when I hear "IoT" I tend to think of hundreds of millions (billions, in the not-so-distant future) of teeny-weeny devices (small processors coupled with sensors and/or actuators) connected to the internet. In this case, connectivity and low power consumption will often trump raw processing power (the Cortex C0+ MCUs will score here).

However, the IoT isn't restricted to teeny-weeny devices -- there will be lots of other devices that are physically larger and/or do require more processing power (the Cortex M3/M4 MCUs will score here).

So I think Spansion's point of view is that the fact they offer 700+ processors spanning the M0+, M3, and M4 cores means they can address a wire range of IoT  applications.

@ip2design: I can hardly see what is specific to IoT business. Any idea?

My understanding is that the M3 and M4-based MCUs, although extremely powerful and efficient, may be overkill (and consume too much power) for a lot of IoT applications. The C0+ based MCUs are more applicable to a wide range of IoT applications.

Hi, Max. Thanks for detailing Spansion's announcement.

Here's the background in case if anyone missed it:

Spansion Exec Reassures Fujitsu Customers


http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1320210

The stuff Spansion didn't detail in its press relesae is this:

Spansion's proprietary eCT technology goes inside embedded MCUs by 2015

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
