GOPHER Stat

Welcome to GOPHER Stat, a statistical offering from GruntWare Inc. that compliments the GOPHER Pro cross-vendor microcontroller (MCU) search engine. GOPHER Stat offers statistical data that encompasses the entire database of 29,589 microcontrollers from 28 manufacturers found in the GOPHER Pro database.

The marketing department could take the following information along with GOPHER's MCU parametric data and use it to do market planning, predictions and projections:
    Revenue Data
    Sales Goals
    Competitive Sales Data
    Industry Market Research Reports

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

           GOPHER Stat was designed to give the Marketing and Sales departments of MCU manufacturers a wealth of
           statistical information covering nearly all microcontrollers on the market today. The following minimal
           statistical data are available for each of the 140 parameters used to describe each MCU in the database:

                  Number of MCU's Analyzed
                   Number of different values found
                   List of all values found and their occurrences
                   Number of MCU's found
                   For a Selected Parameter, the following:
                          Percentage of MCUs found
                          Average value
                          Medium value
                          Max value
                          Min value
                          Range of values
                          Average number of occurrences
                          Max number of occurrences
                          Min number of occurrences
                          Range of occurrences
                          Variance of Population
                          Standard Deviation of Population
                          Coefficient of Population
                   List of the top 10 most popular occurrences and their corresponding values

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

           GOPHER Stat provides statistical data covering:

                   The entire MCU database
                   by MCU vendor
                   By MCU product line
                   Thru unique search requests using as many as 9 search parameters to narrow the returned statistical data.
                   Then as many as 12 additional parameters can be selected to obtain statistics from the search.
                       The following search operators are allowed:

               >  (greater than)
               >= (greater than or equal to
               =  (equals)
               != (not equals)
               <  (less than)
               <= (less than or equal to)
               [  (contains)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOPHER Stat has up to 140 searchable parameters that can be used for statistical reporting. (See List of GOPHER Stat Search Parameters

The following is an example statistical report analyzing the frequency of different ADC resolutions.

    List of all ADC resolutions found in the MCU database along with how many times each was
                   found (occurrence) followed by a statistical summary of the found data. (2 pages)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Simple Example

The following is a simple example of an MCU manufacturer (customer) requesting a hypothetical statistical report. We will assume that this customer would like an analysis of what the industry is currently offering for a particular automobile application. The requirements are to use a 32bit CPU with encryption capability, have an MCU freq between 200 and 300 mhz and have an operating temperature of at least 105ºC. At least 2 CAN channels are also required. After the request is searched, the customer would like to see the name of the MCU manufacturer, the part number, cpu size, encryption, frequency, operating temperature, CAN channels, number of CPUs, the name of the CPU and the number of ADC channels available. Finally, the customer wants to see the different values found for each parameter searched, the number of times it was found and finally the percentage of times it was found compared to the total number of parts that were found.

    Overall summary of request; a list of returned parts and the requested parametric values returned;
    and a statistical summary report of the requested parameters and their values. (3 pages)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Complex Analyses

Complex statistical marketing/sales analyses are possible by either using your own staff (if they are familiar with statistical marketing mathematics methods) or using outside companies organizations that specialized in statistical marketing mathematics. The capabilities available thru use of this statistical data include, but are not limited to:
        Competitive Analysis
        Market Trend Analysis
        Market Predictive & Projection Analysis
        Regression Analysis (including simple and multiple)
        Decision Analysis
        Hypothesis Testing
        Forecasting
        etc.

An extremely useful parameter for analyzing statistical data for marketing and sales departments is the DOD (Date-Of-Datasheet) parameter. This date is the oldest date we could find from the microcontroller manufacturer's website and/or from internet searches of websites that offer datasheet archival. It is very useful when analyzing trend analysis of competitive product enhancements and product direction.
