I would love to see SI Labs combine their Energy Micro M4F chips with their SI47xx/48xx RF IC's.  I have a project that would benifit from that.  A single chip with these components in a QFN32/48 package, that would be nice indeed

@daleste: Another nice development system.  This looks like a well thought out low power family of microcontrollers.  It should do well in the market.  Will industrial and automotive versions be available?

The Energy Micro stuff is really very tasty -- and, as you say, it's very well thought out. For example, if you have two identical packages from different families, they are pin-compatible -- you woudl think thsi would be obvious, but I lot of manufacturers don;t do it.

I didn't even touch on their software environment, which boasts sophisticated power-consumption analysis capabilities. For example, you can run code in a simulator and see the estimated power that will be consumed -- if you see a power spike in the waveform you can click on it to be taken to the corresponding area in the code.

Re your question about industrial and automotive versions -- I'll ask the folks from Silicon Labs to comment here.

I am yet to see why ARM has not reached $3B in revenue and still languishing below $1B. Everyone is congregating with them and they seem to have a great product. But not making things and living on the paltry commission/royalty means they may never be big. The risk is low for them, but they are losing out.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
