EEMBC has released a benchmark and initial results that analyze peripheral performance on microcontrollers.
Oberon Microsystems has ported a set of low-overhead cryptographic codes suitable for Apple's HomeKit to the Cortus APS3RP 32bit processor core.
Security took center stage at the Embedded World show in Nürnberg this week, with a number of vendors launching software intended to help protect against hacks.
ARM has gone back to the 32bit realm for its latest Cortex-A processor core, aiming the device at a new generation of low-cost platforms inspired by the success of the Raspberry Pi as well as wearables.
CAST and SoC Solutions have teamed up to put together pre-integrated platforms, with designs that reach down into the 8bit space.
Benchmarking organization EEMBC has kicked off an effort to develop a set of performance tests for edge nodes for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Cadence has launched a processor core aimed at ‘always on’ signal-processing applications such as voice detection and recognition for wearables.
Texas Instruments has launched a family of ARM-based microcontrollers intended to act as a migration path from its low-energy 16bit MSP430 series, developing its own flash-capable 90nm process to implement them.
The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) has released a benchmark suite aimed at applications processors and higher-performance microcontrollers with floating-point units.
Research by the University of Michigan into subthreshold circuit design has led to spinoff company Ambiq Micro creating a family of microcontrollers that it claims provide an ARM Cortex-M4F with power consumption at levels normally associated with an M0+.
