Low power: Extend battery life and shelf life without compromising system performance.

Maximizing battery life is a key concern across industrial and personal electronics products, especially as these products become more complex and connected. Developers must minimize power consumption over the life of the product, which often means minimizing power usage in the processing unit. Our extremely low-power microcontrollers can greatly reduce power consumption and increase battery life.

Optimizing power consumption isn't always easy. Take a look at how to benchmark MCU power consumption.
