Keywords:32bit microcontrollers  microcontroller migration  embedded world 

The embedded world is constantly changing. You might not have noticed, but if you take a minute to recall what a microcontroller system was like 10 years ago and compare it to today's latest microcontroller systems, you will find that PCB design, component packages, level of integration, clock speed and memory size have all going through several generations of change.

One of the hottest topics in this area is when will the last of remaining 8bit microcontroller users start to move away from legacy architectures and move to modern 32bit processor architectures like the ARM Cortex-M based microcontroller family.

Over the last few years, there has been a strong momentum of embedded developers starting the migration to 32bit microcontrollers and, in this multi-part article, we will take a look at some of the factors accelerating this migration.

In the first part of this article, we will summarise why embedded developers should consider moving to the 32bit microcontrollers.
