Embedded microcontrollers often get ignored in the main stream tools market for production testing and development. Up until recently, these devices had a limited role when compared to a System On-Chip (SoC). Sure the microcontroller market has moved from 16-bit to 32-bit, but still played a simple, often single function role. However, as the embedded flash memory has increased, the power of these 32-bit controllers are expanding their domain. This expansion is largely due to the software footprint which allows for more peripheral content within the silicon. Software is still the dominate factor in hardware configurability and utilization.
