The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) opened in San Jose, California today and, after spending a few minutes walking the floor, I’ve once again been overwhelmed with the ever increasing number of tech companies that are highlighting their support for the ARM Architecture.
I arrived into San Francisco over the weekend to fantastic spring sunny weather – it looks like the sun might temporarily go away for the three days of the show expo and the forecast offers news of light rain showers - but that hasn’t stopped the many hundreds of people arriving at the show to find out more about what’s happening in the world of technology today.
Some new product announcements that have already surfaced include news of the sampling of the world’s smallest general-market 32-bit microcontroller from NXP Semiconductors, the LPC1102, based on the Cortex-M0 processor, and STMicroelectronics unveiled the STM32L Ultra-Low-Power ARM Cortex™-M3 based Microcontrollers for ‘Energy-Lite’ Applications – I’ll be looking for more info about these products on the NXP and ST booths.
I will be catching up with the team from Cypress Semiconductor on today who is showing the PSoC® 5 product in the ARM Partner Pavilion at Booth #1308. PSoC 5 is a programmable embedded system-on-chip based on the Cortex-M3 processor, integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory and a microcontroller on a single chip, and was announced a while back but this was my first opportunity to chat with Cypress about it – check back later this week for the video on ARMflix.
Stay tuned for videos from the show floor each day, for example, Cortex-M family products being demoed, interviews with key players in the industry, and much more so make sure to come back to the ARM-Events blog (and ARMflix) to find out the latest news from the show floor.
I’ll also been posting news from the show on the ARMEmbedded twitter feed so take a look at that to see some photos that I took today. You can also follow what others are talking about at the show via the #ESC_Events hashtag.
If you’re at the show and would like to chat with me then just visit the ARM Partner Pavilion at Booth #1308 and ask one the ARM team to find me – I’d love to find out what your views are and maybe I can post them on the blog later in the week.
Andy Frame, CPU Product Manager, ARM, is based in Cambridge and is fanatical about the success of the Cortex-M3 and how it is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for 32-bit MCU’s. Since joining ARM in 1995, Andy has had a variety of roles from Software Tools Technical Training though to Business Development, joining the CPU product management team about two years ago to look after Cortex-M3.
