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.
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+.
ARM's latest core, the dual-issue M7 borrows features from the Cortex-R family for safety-critical applications as well as adding the option of cache memory.
Manufacturing giant says we need a new category of WPUs - wearables processing units - to create a mass market and that ARM needs to go smaller than the MO.
Imagination Technologies has set up an open-source effort that mirrors ARM's Linaro group and cut a deal with Oracle for Java optimization.
Oracle aims to reduce the incompatibilities between the two main embeddable versions of Java as the company tries to make the language the natural choice for IoT.
Express Logic has launched a graphical user interface (GUI) software stack for resource-light 32bit microcontrollers running the company's ThreadX RTOS.
NXP Semiconductors has decided to buy tools supplier Code Red Technologies to help build up software support for its ARM-based microcontrollers.
