Do More - Evolution of the 8 bit MCU
Speaker: Steve Drehobl, Microchip Technology Inc.
- Steve Drehobl is Microchip VP of the 8-bit Microcontroller business unit.
- He tells us about Microchip continued commitment to the 8-bit market where the company achieved in 2015 the top market share position (Gartner report).
- Steve tells us that the recent acquisition of ATMEL (April 2016) and the addition of the AVR® MCU product line to the company portfolio, its dominant position will further expand and he confirmed his commitment to make both PIC® and AVR® MCUs (and their respective tool chains) grow in the coming years with up to 40 new products in development!
- The focus on integration of analog functionality and core independent peripherals will continue in the coming new generations of PIC and AVR MCUs to provide customers with the best Real Time Performance, rapid development and robust application solutions.

This webinar introduces Winbond’s High-Performance Serial NAND technology which is the first in the world to run at 166MHz, and is well-suited for center-display and cluster segments in next-generation Highly-Automated Vehicles-HAVs, and other applications that require instant-boot and high throughput.
This White Paper explores how by using SDR, engineers can build radios that can react more readily to interference, employ more sophisticated channel-coding schemes to increase data rates, and take advantage of other advanced RF technologies. English Version / German Version
The advanced power management of high-performance embedded computer systems prioritizes peak performance over deterministic behavior. What can designers do if determinism is an important factor for their embedded systems?
The industry 4.0 landscape includes connected things, more data analytics, new forms of human machine interfaces, AR/VR developments, Advanced Robotics / 3D Printing, and other digitize industrial equipment.

Strict emission regulations worldwide heavily affect the car industry. To meet these regulations, electrification will play a major role. In this webinar you will learnw hy there is no way back from electrifying the powertrain, which components to select for which application and that IGBTs can also be used in fast switching applications.
The duty cycle of the current processors is typically characterised by long periods of very low levels of activity, as the operating system and radio devices tick over in the background, punctuated by short bursts of intense activity. The same pattern may be observed in the low-power DRAM main memory.
In this webinar you will learn about Vishay’s latest developments in Silicon and Package Technology and how your application can benefit in terms of efficiency and PCB area usage. Focus will be on 60V – 100V MOSFETs.
The IoT trend sets new standards and ensures modernization and interoperability in all areas. Street lights communicate with each other, the smart home can be controlled by mobile phone and the luminaries inform about the room utilization.
Predictive maintenance offers a number of advantages versus traditional approaches to equipment maintenance. In this webinar you will learn about the concepts behind predictive maintenance and the basic principles of condition monitoring.
This webinar will show how thermal and inductance simulations on busbars and capacitor- busbar assemblies can help in optimization of overall system design to achieve the best performing and cost-effective solution. Both thermal and inductance simulations will be presented during the webinar.
The next generation of Smart Grid and intelligent facilities requires advanced power management solutions. In this webinar the latest Nexperia logic developments and package trends will be presented.

High resolution is being extensively marketed across a broad range of high bandwidth oscilloscopes. This white paper provides an overview of the various high resolution design approaches, with examples of their impact on oscilloscope performance.
Read in this White Paper how 5G technologies could integrate and enable the full potential of mobile technology, big data, IoT, and cloud computing while supporting digital transformation across various sectors, including healthcare, smart vehicles, smart home, industrial automation, and more.
IR illumination is basically everywhere, ranging from industrial and automotive to consumer applications in mobile devices such as face recognition and iris scan. IR LEDs are a fundamental part of those applications.
Choosing the right RF Inductor for your needs can be complicated. This White Paper will help to determin all the characteristics that Inductors need to meet your specific requirements and how to find the right Inductor once the specifications are clear.
Combining security with advanced process nodes has become a challenge in recent years. This is due to the diminishing alternatives for embedded flash when moving past the 28nm process node. Winbond has introduced the TrustMe secure flash products to address this challenge and remove the barriers for adding secure non-volatile storage to practically any process node out there.
Even though NOR flash remains attractive for code storage it has reached its technology limit. The solution is Serial SLC NAND flash based on the SPI interface, offering a better cost per bit with significant compatibility to serial NOR.
More and more real time applications do require a very strong CPU capability, aside integrated peripherals. But, there was still a question mark with regards to the amount of embedded flash needed in these applications. The new value lines STM32 microcontrollers will ease this decision process and give more flexibility to the developers.
Software vulnerabilities can manifest themselves in many ways, but typically, they are exploited by abusing software interfaces in ways outside of their designed operation. But we can help ourselves during our development to make static analysis tools more accurate and relevant to our cause.
Increasing demands on power distribution networks have resulted in smaller DC rails, as well as a proliferation of rails that ensure clean power reaches the pins of integrated circuits. This guide covers five tips for making accurate power integrity measurements with oscilloscopes.
Measuring ripple, noise and transients on today’s low-voltage DC power rails challenges most oscilloscopes. Read this White Paper to learn how to deal with this task.
In this whitepaper, we highlight four main attack scenarios and show how through the use of a hardware trust anchor, we can better address the four use cases: Authentication, Secured Communication, Secured Data Store and integrity and Secured Firmware update.
