The move to peipherals with more smarts is a very positive trend. When the power hungry processors (even 8-biters are power hogs in my book) can be 'put to sleep' and the peripherals can do the heavy lifting you can get to some very nice power efficiency levels. For smart sensors power efficiency is a key driver and these devices seem to be right on target.
