Really @goafrit, this is what you understand by IoT? a smart TV? We are talking about extremely low power devices that are not plugged into the mains, devices that are capable of scavanging power from solar power, vibration etc.

>>  very low-power microcontroller core for the Internet of Things (IoT) and other embedded applications.

Do we not have these things already? Alibaba has a TV that helps you shop, watch TV, play games, surf web. They call it Rainbow. This exists already. I am surprised what the deal is here. The IoT is nothing but embedded systems with internal protocol and we have been in that game for long.

CMOS research community has been waiting for such a device for a long time, see you all the paers pubslihsed in J Solid State Ckts...bravo ARM!

This is very interesting in that it suggests the first signs of a new wave that would be likely to sweep across the entire chip industry.   As I recall, analysts are predicting billions of sensors as the iOT takes shape. ARM is clearly staking its claim here. It's fascinating to see this thinking on how the processors will be powered.

Do we really need a new set of micro controllers to enable the IoT products? Even with the new set of micro controllers we stilll need other components that need to be operated at lower voltages.

I included a link to the IMEC/Holst work reported at ISSCC this year.

Toumaz Ltd. is one company that has been doing this sort of design for some time, but as Muller pointed out, right now they have to take all the risk in terms of getting integrated circuits to work.

Any problems and the foundry simply says they are outside the specified range of the process.

This couldd be a significant enabler/differentiator, perfect for ARM.

Not clear if they will have any particular time-to-market or design advantage yet.

The first tine I heard about near-threshold voltage work it was an Intel research paper. Also, there were many papers from many places on this topic at ISSCC earlier this year.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
