I love how this site documents almost everything with regards to engineering, but at the same time it means that I sometimes get confused looking at the infographics in these articles. It would be great if a more lay man way of explaining things is used. Alex - http://www.cavalok.com

Those graphics do look impressive. 70% power consumption difference against a PIC microcontroller?!!! I suppose now with hybrid vehicles (or all-electric vehicles) power consumption is critical in the automobile. But I think that is too much of a difference… I wonder about the conditions used for measuring the power consumption among the devices… and are the compared devices used for the same applications?
