NO RATINGS
Question: We currently use Freescale for thier ColdFire product. We are currently looking on going to an ARM product in the near future. When we do this, we will look at other vendors ARMs as well to see what they offer. In general we look for several things in a vendor - 1) are they on our Preffered Parts Vendor list. 2) How well they support their product (do they keep use tuned to new and better products coming down the pike) 3) Do they good development tools. and 4) how much can they help us out when we get into trouble if we run into snaggs during devlopment.

All excellent criteria. This keeps you out of trouble and teaches you a lot about the vendor.
