ARM 'Flycatcher' chip tiny, cheap, enables 'Internet of things'

ARM Cortex M0+ chip (Flycatcher), a 32-bit chip with low price and small size, may lead to linking common items over the Internet.

British chip design firm ARM has released a 32-bit chip at 8-bit pricing designed to run for years on little battery power. Already licensed by NXP Semiconductors and Freescale, the chips should sell for 20 to 25 cents, with a license fee back to ARM of one or two percent. Think small costs but huge potential, as the embedded Internet-connected chip market has been estimated at up to 50 billion connected devices in 2020.
