I think the XMC4700 (and the XMC4800) a great product for motor control, thanks to its flexible and performing devices, but it has a big flaw: it's just a 144 MHz Arm M4!
As all of your competitors offer the new microcontrollers with the new Arm M7 (with frequencies of up to 400/500 MHz), I was wondering if Infineon also plans to upgrade the XMC using the M7?
Having to start a new project, I would need to understand which product to orientate, considering the latest news.

Hi,
I think that Infineon should develop something like the KV5x from NXP to stay competitive.

Hi Ari, the world is small (we meet here too) :cool:
If the XMC4700 had the core of MKV58 (or that of STM32H7) it would be the top for motor control.
Obviously it should not have NXP lead time (39-40 weeks)! 😞
