Whether microcontrollers are being embedded into new applications that demand ease of use or in mature environments where performance increases are needed, design engineers are looking for more memory.
The ability to squeeze greater amounts of Flash on a controller is bringing significant benefits, letting developers shrink products or offer more features and functions. “More demanding requirements like advanced user interfaces and real-time operation are being addressed by expanded memory capabilities,” says Mark Buccini, marketing director, Advanced Embedded Controls at TI. When powerful processors are augmented by large amounts of memory and popular peripherals, system design becomes much simpler.

Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the world’s biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Sam’s Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
