ARM Powered MIDs Shipping Today And the first MID with WiMAX
Medical Applications Cochlear implant directly stimulates auditory nerves Retinal prosthesis/implant already a reality Video processor converts image into stimulation pattern Glucose management Continuous under-skin sensor and micro-pumps Body/Wireless Sensor Networks In clothing for ambulatory, home and sport Inside implanted prosthetics PillCam capsule endoscopy
Embedded Applications AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRIAL Industrial Medical Power CONSUMER Motor Control Motor Control White Goods Microcontrollers are the foundation for new segments to develop
Application Complexity Microcontroller Challenges Improving Code Reuse Multiple 8-Bit devices single 32-Bit Device Aggregation USB, CAN, Ethernet, ZigBee Increasing System Connectivity Feature growth in existing applications Automatic code from meta-languages UML, LabVIEW, SimuLink Higher level languages Hardware/System Abstraction Layers Third party RTOS & Middleware Hardware Software Development Costs (Industrial Application)
The Microcontrollers of the Future Block Diagram of a typical ARM MCU JTAG Debug CAN Interface 256KB On-chip Flash Power management, RTC, reset and watchdog, internal oscillator GPIO 64KB SRAM 3-channel 16bit Timers Periodic Interval Timer 4-channel 16bit PWM 10/100 Ethernet MAC USB 2.0 Interface Advanced Interrupt Controller ARM CPU Core Memory Controller 2 SPI Interfaces Two-wire Interface Synchronous Serial Controller 10-bit A/D converter (eight channels) 2 UARTs Keil Starter Kit MCU Market based on Standards Classification 8/16/32-bit obsolete (8/16-bit has no price benefit) Single-chip MCU with plenty of memory (enables clean software layers) Standard Software Components and Application Frameworks (AUTOSAR, OSEK)
Todays Growth of ARM Based MCU ARM Partner Shipping Quarter ARM based MCUs are commodity: compete with 8-bit pricing ARM MCUs increase 2.4x per year Highest volume contributor after wireless ARM Tools increase 1.95x 8 and 16 bit market stagnating Shipments of ARM technology-based MCUs 140% CAGR $M Complete MCU Market (Source: Gartner)
Importance of Development Tools #1 factor in choosing a microprocessor is the software development tools available for it April 2005
ARM Ecosystem for Microcontrollers Over 40,000 members on ARM-based MCU Forums TOOLCHAIN PLATFORMSDEBUGGERSOPERATING SYSTEMS Quality as well as Quantity: Many of these third parties identify ARM related business as largest growth driver, which means robust, supported solutions … and onwards to Modeling Solutions
