As of 2008 there are several dozen microcontroller architectures and vendors including:

§  ARM processors (from many vendors) using ARM7 or Cortex-M3 cores are generally microcontrollers

§  STMicroelectronics ST8 (8-bit), ST10 (16-bit) and STM32 (32-bit)

§  Atmel AVR (8-bit), AVR32 (32-bit), and AT91SAM (32-bit)

§  Freescale  ColdFire (32-bit) and S08 (8-bit)

§  Freescale  68HC11 (8-bit)

§  Intel 8051

§  Infineon Microcontroller: 8, 16, 32 Bit microcontrollers for automotive and industrial applications

§  MIPS (32-bit PIC32)

§  NXP Semiconductors LPC1000, LPC2000, LPC3000, LPC4000 (32-bit), LPC900, LPC700 (8-bit)

§  Microchip PIC (8-bit PIC16, PIC18, 16-bit dsPIC33 / PIC24)

§  Parallax Propeller

§  PowerPC ISE

§  PSoC (Programmable System-on-Chip)

§  Rabbit 2000 (8-bit)

§  Renesas RX, V850, Hitachi H8, Hitachi SuperH (32-bit), M16C (16-bit), RL78, R8C, 78K0/78K0R (8-bit)

§  Silicon Laboratories Pipelined 8051 Microcontrollers

§  Texas Instruments Microcontrollers  : TI MSP430 16-bit Microcontrollers

§  Toshiba TLCS-870 (8-bit/16-bit)

And many others, some of which are used in very narrow range of applications or are more like applications processors than microcontrollers. The microcontroller market is extremely fragmented, with numerous vendors, technologies, and markets.
