One thing that always shows up at the Embedded Systems Conference/Design West is chips and lots of them. Everthing from microcontrollers to microprocessors to FPGAs. Here we take a look at the two ends of this spectrum.
- Microchip PIC16F178x
- STmicroelectronics STM32 F0
- Xilinx - FPGA Development Tools
- Renesas RX
- Freescale Kinetis L
- Texas Instruments C66xx Keystone
Also at the show were dev kits and demos for newly released chips like Texas Instrument's 16-bit MSP430FR58xx Wolverine series. The Wolverine has unified FRAM storage subsystem for code and data (see FRAM Microcontroller Targets Low Power Applications).
And now onto the other details.
