According to In-Stat, Bulk of MCU Revenue Moving to 16-bit and 32-bit

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Nov. 9, 2005— The bulk of revenue in the microcontroller market is moving from 8-bit microcontrollers to the higher 16-bit and 32-bit bit devices, reports In-Stat ( http://www.in-stat.com). By the end of 2009, the combined revenue from 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers will reach approximately twice the revenue expected from 8-bit MCUs, the high-tech market research firm said.

"The shift in revenue is primarily due to the appearance of products providing sophisticated features that must employ higher performance and wider-datapath cores," said Max Baron, In-Stat analyst. "Properly designed, higher bit-width microcontrollers will require less power consumed per workload executed than their counterparts in the 8-bit category."

A recent report by In-Stat found the following:

-- Although the bulk of unit and revenue upsides for microcontrollers will result from increased demand for higher performance devices, 8-bit microcontrollers will continue to lead in unit shipments over the combined group of 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers.

-- Unit demand in the 16-bit MCU category is dominated by three applications: smart cards, PC peripherals and hard disk drives. Together, the three applications comprise over 40% of total unit shipments. The greatest CAGRs come from control and instrumentation, MP3 players and digital camera applications.

-- Unit volumes in the 32-bit MCU space are also dominated by smart cards; however, unit CAGR growth is coming from different applications such as digital wireless, PC DVDs, barcode readers and security.

The report, "War of the Worlds: 16- and 32-Bit MCUs Invade ASIC Applications" (#IN0502546SI), covers the worldwide microntroller market. It provides a bit-wise MCU forecast, a market overview, detailed data by market segment, and a forecast for more than 80 applications for both 16-bit and 32-bit MCUs.
