Yes because code would not fit otherwise and I had the largest flash processor available. The micronas device uses AMD/Spansion flash internally.
We were in production for just a few years with Micronas and they decided to discontinue all the ARM devices that we were using. The redesign has cost us a fortune.
A few months later at a show in Detroit a Micronas salesman asked me if I was interested in their processors. My response was that their name was a curse where I work.
