ARM?s Super-Efficient New Chip Can Get "Years of Battery Life"

With processors, it's easy to get caught up in gigahertz and petaflops and the top-end specs. But blazing fast speed doesn't mean all that much for, say, your refrigerator. ARM's says its Cortex-M0+ chip will connect your dumb appliances to a smart grid, and offer "years" of battery life on some of them.

The Cortex-M0+ chip is capable of 32-bit processing, measures 1mm x 1mm, and is based on Flycatcher architecture. ARM says it's the world's most energy-efficient design. It's even more efficient than the 8- and 16-bit MCUs it's replacing.

The idea is that if the "Internet of Things"?that near-future sci-fi aspiration where your toaster knows when your dishwasher is using too much power?is ever going to happen, we'll need super low power chips to make it possible. [ARM via Geek, BBC]
