MCU & MPU: harnessing processing horsepower

A breakthrough system performance is shaped by vision and expectations—which can vary considerably from product to product. To get where you want to go, your selection of processor should be determined by product definition, the application it supports, and the ideal user experience. 

If you do the research, you’ll quickly realize there is no shortage of processing options for achieving your desired level of performance. As you’re looking to select and design the right processing engine into your product, you’ll want a partner that can provide a range of options and has the know-how to get the most out of each one.

With Avnet Silica as a partner, you’ll save time on research and get the guidance you need to select the right processor for delivering that breakthrough performance.

Microcontrollers include a range of products offering digital processing under software control. Microprocessors (MPU) and microcontrollers (MCU) are available in data widths from 8 to 64 bits, targeting a variety of both generalist and specialist applications. Applications include domestic appliances, handheld devices, servers, automotive, network infrastructure, image processing, and communications.
