Another option in low-power design

Renesas is offering yet another option in the low-power microcontroller market to build electronics that consume less power and are more energy efficient. The idea of building high-performance devices is especially attractive as regulations and budgets get tighter.

I wonder if these low-power devices could also be used in energy harvesting applications.

Good idea, Chuck, I am sure they could be adapted for this type of use. There is a lot of innovation happening in this space and low-power is at the heart of it.

Seems like low power would also be critical in the ongoing development of the "Internet of Things."
