Fisher-Price has put sharp Microelectronics' Blue Streak Arm 7 processor line on its road map for some electronic toys. An Arm CPU from Sharp (www.sharpsma.com/sma/products/MCUSoC.htm) is used in the Pixter Color Digital Creativity System (www.fisher-price.com/us/pixter/) now on the market to replace an 8-bit chip in previous generations. LCD controllers are among the cores that help make the processor suitable for toy development.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
