processor armThe British designer ARM revealed this Tuesday a chip project considered by the company as the lowest microprocessor power consumption, designed to help devices such as refrigerators, equipamentos médicos e parquímetros a se comunicarem com other devices.

THE ARM, conhecida como criadora da technology que aciona quase todos os celulares inteligentes e computers tablets do planeta, announced that its new design 32 bits uses approximately one third of the energy consumed by of microcontrollers 8 and 16 bits now available.

Low-cost microcontrollers are embedded on millions of handsets, the example of home appliances, cars and toys, in which monitor and control performance. The adoption of technology 32 bits and low power consumption will help the machines communicate with other machines, He said the ARM, setting the foundations for the call “internet of things”, que conectará sem necessidade de fios aparelhos pouco parecidos aos computers, current smart phones and tablets.

The new processor Cortex M0 has already been licensed for the Chipmakers Freescale and NXP Semiconductor, ARM announced on Tuesday. The microcontrollers are fast-growing source of revenue for the ARM. In the fourth quarter of 2011, 1 billion chips based on his designs were sold, 40 by above the total period in 2010.

The ARM receives royalties from 1% the 2% the value of each chip. A microcontroller based on the new project may be sold at a typical cost of approximately 20 cents, informed the company. The ARM rests in the segment of microcontrollers with companies including Renesas and Microchip Technology.
