Microcontrollers have moved beyond their commodity roots in the 8-, 16-, and even 32-bit architectural realms and are now delivering world-class embedded performance as multiple cores are fitting into single MCU packages. Freescale Semiconductor’s Ray Cornyn, the company's vice president and general manager for automotive microcontroller products, will explain the options this new technology offers for design engineers. In a chat moderated by Design News senior technical editor Charles Murray, Cornyn will discuss which applications can benefit from multicore, how multicore affects power budgets and costs, what multicores can bring to safety critical applications, and how software development has to advance to keep up with the new complexity. As always, Design News Radio will focus on providing prescriptive information for listeners intent on applying the new technology in forthcoming applications and products.
