Atmel gains ground in mcu rankings
Worldwide microcontroller market share saw a few changes take place among top suppliers in 2011, according to research firm Databeans.
The most noticeable change was that of Atmel, which climbed up the rankings with an increase in microcontroller revenue of 25%, according to Databeans.
Renesas Electronics retained its lead as the number one supplier in 2011, regardless of the difficulties it faced in the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. The company's slight 1% loss year over year is the largest change in revenue since its merger with NEC in 2009, according to the firm.
Overall competition in this market from Atmel, Microchip Technology and Infineon Technologies has become very close and is only separated by 0.8% between these competitors.
