    • A subliminal commentary about the typical response time of MCU manufacturers is certainly an additional takeaway from this article. I'm wondering if we now live in a time where new designs on the bleeding edge of technology require more from our suppliers than the eh, typical data we've been given. Ultra low current designs, for example, require exacting data in order for designers to make judicious component choices. Unqualified "typical" data is almost less than useless. Perhaps we need more of the component engineers specifying data in truthful terms and less of the marketeers speaking in generalities. I'm sure it's costly to gather significant statistical data from a silicon production run. Maybe even costlier to maintain such process control as to "guarantee" component specs across broad (often typical) temperature ranges and component lots. But maybe that's exactly what today's designs need.
