A microcontroller is a small, single integrated circuit that can be found in many different kinds of devices such as automobiles, DVD players, digital cameras, iPods, consumer appliances, cell phones, wireless radios, RFID systems, and many other devices. Microcontrollers are also popularly found in the field of robotics these days.

There are several microcontroller architectures and there are dozens of manufacturers for these as well. The most common types of microcontrollers found today are the 8-bit, 16-bit and the 32-bit microcontrollers. 8-bit microcontrollers are one of the most common one, with over 50% of all the CPUs sold globally containing 8-bit microcontrollers.

Perhaps the most important area of usage for microcontrollers today is their use in smart meters that make up the smart grid. The smart grid is a major market for the use of microcontrollers, and the growing investment in the global smart grid industry makes up a huge revenue source for the global microcontroller industry.

The research analyzes the global microcontroller industry in its research report Analyzing the Global Market for Microcontrollers. This in-depth report begins with an introduction to microcontrollers. We look at what microcontrollers are, the classification of microcontrollers, design and programs of microcontrollers, applications of microcontrollers, the supply chain of this industry as well as an analysis of microcontrollers versus microprocessors.
