I see that the Apollo family 4 is coming out soon:
I am considering which chips I should include in my next project and I have a few questions:
- will the Apollo 4 cover the same "market segment" or a different one compared with the Apollo 3 inside the Artemis products? It looks like it has better uA / MHz, but at the same time, it looks like the frequencies are typically quite a bit higher, and there are more peripherals that may or may not be relevant for most embedded sensors projects (like, audio and display modules)?
- will the Apollo3 products and Artemis derivatives remain in production even after the Apollo4 comes out (I guess so? ), and if so, do you have an idea for how long?
- if I am to start a project that should have a typical lifetime of 5 or more years, with possibly several production runs in the next 5 years to come, but I am flexible on the starting date, would you recommend waiting for the Apollo4 products to come out in the form of updated Artemis products (and are there some plans for that?)?
- How would you expect porting some code from Apollo3 to Apollo4 will look like? Do you think this may be an easy, or painful operation?
