If you’ve been developing embedded systems for a while, chances are you’re working with either an ARM or 8051 device, the latter being Intel’s bequest to embedded developers before abandoning them over 20 years ago for the more lucrative PC market.
ARM, of course, went after the embedded market from the beginning with a low-power, high performance RISC core. Today Intel has over 90% of the market for PC processors but less than 2% of the embedded market, where ARM is the king of the mountain. That’s about to change.
Over the last few months Intel has quickly made four moves that clearly demonstrate just how serious they are about getting into the mobile and embedded markets. Read about it on our web site at http://www.low-powerdesign.com/ARM_Intel.htm.
