 Application Note: Choosing a Microcontroller
Microcontrollers are generally designed with a static HCMOS process, which means that its clock rate can be varied anywhere from DC to their top speed, without a hitch.
Microcontrollers are at their best when performing simple, regular tasks which would have required a complex digital circuit in the past.
The "ideal" microcontroller or microprocessor is a processor which combines the speed and number crunching ability of a DSP with the versatility and ease of a microcontroller.
