re: Atmel announces new SAM D20 series of ARM Cortex-M0+ MCUs

The question for me who is better? Full comparison need to be run, and see where each of them have better and not performance. Everyone try to sell but without highlight the pros comparing to the available product on the market is not mean to much for me. It is mean spending of time to compare one new thing. While if the company want to really attract me fast they should directly point where are 100% better there there and there.

Until Atmel embrace the idea of overlapping the AVR family, smaller and probably more useful/popular Cortex-M0 will be slow to appear. Atmel - please prove me wrong!

I really like the way that Atmel have merged the best features from the AVR and ARM families to generate this new offering. Of course they already have MCUs based on Cortex-M3 and -M4 processors (and higher), but these new Cortex-M0+ parts fill a real need with regard to miniscule power consumption required by the Internet of Things. I particularly like their Event system, which allows peripheral to do things autonomously without waking the MCU unless it's necessary -- such as an A/D converter that periodically takes a reading but only wakes the MCU if the value falls inside (or outside) specified bounds...

Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
