Today, we announced our collaboration with ARM® mbed to bring power management APIs to the mbed platform. These low power APIs make it easier than ever to reduce the power consumption of projects you’re developing. Piloting those low power APIs will be Silicon Labs EFM32™ MCUs.
Starting in April, you’ll be able to order an EFM32 MCU (Wonder, Leopard, Giant or Zero Gecko) mbed-enabled kits and software. What will you get out of this new partnership? The ability to radically reduce system-level energy usage by automatically configuring the optimal sleep mode based on which MCU peripherals are in use. It’s an easy way to add functionality without adding power consumption.
