Analyzing the Global Market for Microcontrollers 2015
Generally used in automatically controlled products and devices like implantable medical devices, remote controls, automobile engine control systems and other appliances, microcontrollers are like a small computer on a single integrated circuit. It contains a processor core, a memory unit and a programmable input or/and output peripherals. Microcontrollers are generally designed for use in embedded applications.
Since the size of microcontrollers are so small, it is much more economical to digitally control more devices and processes through microcontrollers. The cost of microcontrollers have decreased drastically over the years and nowadays they are cheap and readily available online as well. It is likely that in the future, MRAM could be used in microcontrollers due to its endurance and also due to the fact that it’s incremental semiconductor wafer process cost is relatively low.
Aruvian Research analyzes the global market for microcontrollers, which had achieved revenues of over $17 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach nearly $18.50 billion by the end of 2016.
