What are you talking about. When you develop in high volume you pick your
micro and its manufacturer GIVES you the assembler, ICE, and all the

assembler= less competition.

Assembler= greater choice of microcontrollers

I am not talking about 1-2kB programs here.
If you have sigificant amount of code written in assembler,
you are locked into that architecture.
If someone comes out with a new chip at half the price and you have
500kB assembler code, you cannot easily change that.


This whole thread is about 8 bit microcontrollers like the 8051 and the AVR.
Noone is talking about 500K of code.
