Microprocessors and Microcontrollers
For every project we carefully consider the requirements before deciding on an architecture for the processing needs of a design. We do not recommend a processor based solely on familiarity, as often this wll result in a compromise in cost or functionality. Instead, we look at the offerings of all the major chip manufacturers and select the most appropriate device for each project. In the course of this assessment, alongside the key features we consider the factors that can too easily be overlooked such as development tool chain; availability; design stability and more.
We have experience in working with processors/controllers from NXP, Freescale, TI, Atmel, ST, PIC, Analog Devices, Renesas, Intel and Altera. Our projects involve working with tiny 8 bit microcontrollers through to multiple core high end processor architectures and everything inbetween. For high complexity, low volume designs we often use "system on modules" (SOMS). This approach significantly reduces development cost, risk and time to market for our customers.
At RVL we are passionate about keeping up to date with the latest technology, so you can be sure we will select the best option in the market at the point of design.
