The age-old embedded design question still remains whether to use an 8-bit or 32-bit core in your new design. If you ask several engineers, you will probably find that their opinions are very polar. Like it or not, 32-bit cores are here to stay. So what does this mean? It means that inevitably one day, no matter how hard you try not to, you will need to migrate from your loveable 8-bit core to one of those new and complex 32-bit cores. Fortunately that migration doesn't have to be painful.  This article will explore the latest best practices, that when used make the transition from 8-bits to 32-bits seamless.  To read more, click the download link below or visit
