Learn how to maximize energy efficiency with EFM32™ Gecko MCUs

You might not think about it, but, on average, you utilize hundreds of microcontrollers (MCU) in a day. Everything from your toothbrush to your car has one or more MCUs inside them. And the number of MCUs you rely on is growing with the rapid adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) movement.So, what is this MCU inside everything? Like the name implies, a microcontroller is a small chip that controls something. It does this by processing a recipe, known as the program, which someone has written specifically for a product and stored inside the memory of the MCU. Because it is the program inside that decides how the MCU controls a product, one microcontroller can be used in two completely different products. We will discuss the reason for this later.
