Indeed, Lou, devices and components are getting smaller and smaller but still able to pack a bigger and bigger punch. It's pretty impressive, especially what's happening in the ultra-low-power space.

Hey, I was writing about this one too. Pretty amazing to pack that level of hardware security in such a small place!

But, when will an embedded processor be under threat? During operation or someone trying to reverse engineer the system? IE: de-capping

What really amazed me about this was the combination of performance and power. MCUs with these kinds of power numbers have certainly existed in the past, but they didn't offer this level of performance.

Yes, it is amazing that such features can be added to a part that draws little power and is inexpensive.  These are chips running at a fairly low clock speed, and yet they can do all they need and sleep when not really in use.  It just goes to show the power of these machines.

Security is a nice addition to a low-power chip. This will get even more important as the Internet of Things really takes off.
