According to Evans Data Corp’s new Global Development Survey, most developers working on embedded systems in North America and the Asia Pacific regions are planning to migrate to a different hardware architecture. In a worldwide survey of over 1300 software developers, Intel was identified as the maker of the hardware architecture that would be targeted by the largest pluralities in North America, 29%, and Asia Pacific 34%.
