Keywords:chip  high-granulation  low power processors 

Advances in processing technology along with innovative chip designs and high-granulation power management software have brought entirely new families of low power processors where designers no longer need to make sacrifices in their system designs. Of course, no one device "has it all," so engineers must consider their system requirements carefully and then examine the now expanding range of low power processors to see which one best fits their application requirements. This article by John Dixon of Texas Instruments provides an assessment of different processors using a product-selection matrix. The following design criteria that are of chief concern to system designers are considered: Power, performance, integration, time to market and price.
