The world is transitioning from lower cost 8 and 16 bit micros into 32 bit micros such as the ARM that are only slightly more expensive, yet offer not only better performance but also better design tools and faster code development for a modest increase in cost.  The design trade-offs would be presented that allow picking the best products and tools.
