Although 8bit MCUs continue to be the most widely used, the increasing processing requirements of many applications suggest a transition to faster processors. Much publicity is made on 32bit devices expected to bring more MIPS to address new challenges. Reality is more complex than that as the meaning of performance that designers expect for their systems is more than MIPS. Migrating to a new architecture is not always necessary to meet increased performance requirements: based on the proven 8/16bit AVR CPU the new XMEGA extends the reach of 8/16bit applications with a unique combination of performance feature set and ultra low power consumption.
