In the last two months, some impressively tiny systems were unveiled or released. World's Smallest Bluetooth Chip In early March, the smallest Bluetooth chip in the world was announced. It was designed by EM Microelectronic, part of the SWATCH Group and the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM). The designers managed to fit more than five million transistors on the chip's 5mm2 surface. According to the SWATCH Group, this little chip actually broke a total of three world records. First is the obvious: world's smallest Bluetooth SoC. The second and third sound more like marketing speak, but the SWATCH Group claims the new chip to have the lowest energy consumption "compared to its competitors" and "its high-speed start-up capability is unparalleled". Since "compared to its competitors" and "capability is unparalleled" aren't units of measurement, a healthy ...
