ARM to top 32-bit MCU market in 2011

LONDON — ARM is forecast to pass Power Architecture and x86 to become the leading 32-bit microcontroller and embedded microprocessor architecture in 2011.

A new report from Semicast Researchs shows that automotive and industrial (including medical) applications are forecast to be the two key growth sectors, with total revenues for ARM-based MCUs/eMPUs set to increase at a CAGR of 21 percent over the period 2007-2013.

Revenue growth for ARM-based MCUs is forecast to be driven in particular by the introduction of low cost parts based on the ARM Cortex M3 and M0 cores.
