Migrating to Texas Instruments ARM from STM32

So, I'm done. |O

I am taking the decision to change all my designs from stm32 to ti arm devices, looks like they are not suffering hard times with shortage situation. So, I would like to know if someone else also adventure in this journey. :popcorn:

I don't use any TI ARM CPUs in my current development, but just had a board that needed to be redesigned at the last moment due to a TI chip shortage of a non-cpu part. If you're going to change, you'd better be very sure the chips you need will be available and for a price that makes sense. Throughout the chip shortage the Microchip MCUs, which I have a love-hate relationship with, have had consistent availability for the parts I use, so at the moment I wouldn't consider changing vendors. I'm definitely not a Microchip fanboy, and admit there's lots of issues, especially with their software tools, but if I had a product with any MCU that I was currently having supply issues with, I'd first look to replace it with a Microchip part if feasible.

jealcuna:
My first option was ATMEL MCU microchip. But I have seen many forums reporting shortage for this brand also. I don't like the pic architecture, and I hate the ide core in NetBeans. Also I prefer opensource compiler like GCC or SDCC. I have not checked arm microchip ics. Probably it is more friendly than pic. I definitely check microchip arm ics, thank you.

jealcuna:
So I realize that Microchip bought atmel because the arm portfolio  :palm:

I am not sure if atmel arm ics are experimenting shortage also.  :-//

I did a couple of things in the TM4C1294. Decent chip. Tools (Eclipse of course) work well enough. The documentation and example code are actually useful so I was up and running quickly. The mix of peripherals is sorta weird (who really needs ten I2C ports?).

Oh, there's also the MSP432E devices, which are similar but not. Same 120 MHz M4 core and similar peripherals, and I can't really figure out why one would be preferred over the other. Expect some confusion when you try to work with the configurator thing.
