Energy Micro revealed details of their new EFM32 Giant Gecko microcontroller product family. The 32-bit Giant Gecko (GG) MCUs feature Flash configurations up to 1024KB with the added option of embedded USB connectivity. The EFM32GG microcontrollers are ideal for energy sensitive applications with high memory requirements. The EFM32 Giant Gecko from Energy Micro will begin sampling in Q1’2011 and pricing will start at $2.5 USD each in 100k quantities.
Energy Micro introduced thirteen EFM32 Tiny Gecko (TG) microcontrollers. At a sub-Dollar price, the EFM32 Tiny Gecko (TG) microcontrollers offer the energy-efficient performance of the bigger Gecko products combined with smaller Flash and RAM combinations and a choice of space saving QFN20, QFN32, and QFN64 packaging. Prices start at $0.99 USD each in 100 K quantities.
The CMX-RTX and CMX-Tiny+ RTOSes now support Energy Micro’s ultra low energy 32-bit EFM32 Gecko microcontroller family. CMX-RTX and CMX-Tiny+ provide a truly preemptive, multi-tasking operating system for accelerating the development capabilities of designers who use the EFM32 Gecko microcontrollers. CMX-RTX and CMX-Tiny+ enable faster application development and efficient hardware utilization for Energy Micro based designs. The EFM32 is based on the ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller core.
Energy Micro introduced their 32-bit EFM32 Gecko microcontroller family. Based on the ARM Cortex(TM)-M3 microcontroller architecture, the EFM32G has been proven to extend battery life by a factor of four, consuming a quarter of the energy required by existing 8, 16 ,or 32-bit microcontrollers. The first products are being offered by Energy Micro in QFN64 and BGA112 profiles and are currently sampling with lead customers. Pricing for the initial 32-pin devices starts at $1.55 in 100k quantities.
