ARM Cortex-M4-based microcontrollers bring energy efficiency and high performance to intelligent applications
Many designers are on a quest to embed intelligence into even the most mundane objects as they try to equip smart homes with intelligent connected devices and sensor networks that link to the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT). Other embedded designers focus on increasing the capabilities of already-intelligent consumer electronics products or on making portable versions of sophisticated sensing devices that require energy efficiency. Though these intelligent devices often need to run on battery power for a long time – sometimes for a period of years – many also require high performance due to their complexity.
