Understanding IoT requirements 101, part 1
Understanding IoT requirements 101, part 1

One of the great challenges when designing IoT devices is that they can be power-hungry. Most IoT devices are Always-On and Tiny, meaning they are limited in the size of battery they can hold. There are various factors that MCU vendors consider when optimizing an MCU for IoT applications.
