And I have though all along that FM stood for Funny Magic, (we at least in Silicon Valley).

@Victor: ...think about how happy will others be after breaking into what you believed to be "secure"...

Good point -- so long as we are increasing the sum total of human happiness LOL

@Max, "I agree -- but I'm sad we have to worry about stuff like that (sad face)".

Well, thinking about making a system "secure" has also a lot of fun... and is of course challenging.

...and think about how happy will others be after breaking into what you believed to be "secure"... LOL. Of course they will also have a lot of fun succeding on that, trust me. ;)

@Victor: As security is a concern in the IoT, crypto accelerators will most likely be a 'basic' feature/requirement for MCUs/SoCs targeted at IoT applications.

Perhaps they were speaking slowly because they were thinking on their feet for a new acceptable meaning to FM.

@Max: "The C0+ based MCUs are more applicable to a wide range of IoT applications". The concept of IoT is not limited to sensors all around wirelessly connected to a local network, it seems like it goes far beyond that limit.

I think we could expect even newer architectures with more processing power-per-mW and more power efficient communications interface technologies showing up soon.

As security is a concern in the IoT, crypto accelerators will most likely be a 'basic' feature/requirement for MCUs/SoCs targeted at IoT applications.

@Stevens: "I am very interesting in bindng IoT and Engergy Harvesting". Perhaps we wouldn't have to wait too long for that as some power management chips targetted at energy harvesting as well as some ultra low porwer MCUs are readily available.

The ZigBee Alliance will also contribute to IoT with the ZigBee PRO Green Power introduced at the end of 2012 (http://www.zigbee.org/Specifications/ZigBee/GreenPower.aspx).

I agree with @krisi "I would think every microcontroller is flexible by definition" and if you let me I would like to add one small detail... if it's running from FLASH/EEPROM and not from ROM masked at the factory or bricked with a static program code it is even more flexible.

It's an art of balancing, I think ^ ^.

Krisi, They mean flexilbility at their factory , when they limit the capabilities of each unit and then sell it under a different number.
