Which Microcontroller Brand Or Part Should I Use For My Lower Power Embedded Design?

Your Choice Of Microcontroller

The process of selecting a low power microcontroller for your design is a complex one, which varies wildly from project to project. Consideration needs to be given to the unique requirements of your design, the project, and the end-product you have in mind.

As a general rule of thumb, the microcontroller selection process observes a multitude of factors. These include everything from basic characteristics such as operating voltage and typical current consumption rates, as well as more general specifications like memory, speed, price, the tools available, as well as any future needs or compatibility requirements.
