The participants in this lively debate include Jim Turley, CEO of Silicon Insider and Max Maxfield, president of Techbites Interactive. Turley will argue that system designers are better off choosing a standalone processor such as a traditional microprocessor or microcontroller, while Maxfield will make the case that the best choice is often embedding the system processor within an FPGA.
