Re: Low Power solution

Chuck, you are quite right.  The thing about power consumption is that, if you can get the performance you need at the lower level of consumption, the savings all flow right to the bottom line. 

I expect to see such technologies applied to large scale computing as well.  In those situations each unit is already reasonably efficient, but there are lots and lots of them.  The savings add up.

It seems that whenever I do an electronics story, naperlou, the theme is power. With so many systems moving to smaller footprints and even handheld design, low power is the ever-present design requirement.

Low Power solution

Chuck, I have worked with the POWER Architecture versions of this product.  The ability to have multiple cores of a standard processor and the QUICC communications engine on one chip is amazing.  This is the trend these days, but it is no less amazing.  The ARM processor brings low power to the part, as you point out.  This can extend its use to battery powered units.  That would be something.
