ARM TechCon Shakedown

Tools, IP and Processors, Oh My!

ARM TechCon was a hip and happenin’ show this year and I’ve got the interviews to prove it.  This week I interview Tony Xia and Amit Bhojraj from NXP Semiconductor about their new 49 cent 32-bit microcontroller and why they were encouraging designers to dismantle, maim and otherwise destroy their old 8- and 16-bit development boards.  From the tool side of the ARM community, I also interview Thomas Sporrong from IAR Systems about the newest version of the IAR Embedded Workbench and how IAR’s acquisition of Signum Systems expanded their already wide range of tool offerings.

I have a Xilinx Spartan-6 SP01 Evaluation Kit to give away this week, but you will have to listen to find out how to win.
