Energy Micro expands range of #ARM #Cortex-M based devices

Energy Micro adds Cortex-M4 based MCUs Peter Clarke 5/13/2013 6:28 AM EDT LONDON – Energy Micro AS has introduced a family of 32-bit microcontrollers at the top end of its range based on the ARM Cortex-M4 with floating-point unti and single-instruction, multiple data (SIMD) capability. The chip family – which comes in 60 variants of memory, peripheral and packages options – is manufactured for Energy Micro by foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. and uses an extreme low leakage option (eLL) to minimize power consumption for battery-powered applications. The eLL option was introduced by TSMC at the 0.18-micron node. Alf-Egil Bogen, chief marketing officer of Energy Micro (Oslo, Norway), said the "Wonder Gecko" was looking to provide good performance at megahertz clock frequencies but with excellent energy efficiency. "The point is we want to get processing don...
