E-PEAS Uses CES to Unveil Groundbreaking MCU Supporting Low Power Demands of Edge Processing

5th January 2022 – Through its AEM family, e-peas has already established itself as a technology leader in the development of energy harvesting dedicated power management ICs. Now it is in the process of introducing a microcontroller unit (MCU) for inclusion in such systems. This will further strengthen the company’s portfolio of extremely low power devices, allowing it to bring differentiation to a larger proportion of engineers’ designs.

With performance parameters that set it apart from what is currently offered via other semiconductor vendors, the EDMS105N MCU is a power-optimized 32-bit device that can deliver 24MHz operation. It employs an ARM Cortex-M0 processing core, thus leveraging a platform and associated tools that engineers are already familiar with. This is the lowest power consuming Cortex-M0 MCU to be commercially available, drawing only 18µA/MHz while in active mode. It has an array of different sleep states, the lowest of which will take its current draw down to just 340nA (with its real-time clock running and 8kB SRAM retention). A multitude of different interfaces are embedded into the MCU (UART, I2C and I2S, plus numerous GPIOs), as well as data conversion and voltage regulation elements.

According to CEO and co-founder of e-peas, Geoffroy Gosset; “e-peas has come a long way since its creation. With our scope now going beyond energy harvesting alone, we will be able to make an even bigger contribution to the global IoT edge devices growth.”

“The release of our EDMS105N MCU is the culmination of many years of in-depth research and development work, and we are excited to see how extensive an impact it will have on the IoT sector in the years ahead,” he continues. “This is the first of a series of announcements that are going to take us towards being a one-stop shop for all the key IC components needed for extremely low power systems.”

For more information on the new EDMS105N MCU, please visit the e-peas booth at CES (#61225).

Industrial CbM Solutions from Sensing to Actionable Insight

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Condition based monitoring (CBM) has been a valuable tool for industrial applications for years but until now, the adoption of this kind of technology has not been very widespread. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Maurice O’Brien from Analog Devices about how CBM can now be utilized across a wider variety of industrial applications and how Analog Device’s portfolio of CBM solutions can help you avoid unplanned downtime in your next industrial design.
