Do you guys think there would be much of an early market for a reduced version of the P2 which has half of everything, in a similar 10x10mm exposed-pad 64-pin package?
For ON Semi to do this job for us, it is extremely simple, at this point. They have all the ingredients on-hand. I think the NRE on this would be quite cheap.
This chip would take half the power and cost about 1/3 less than the 8-cog P2. It would certainly run a little faster, too.
