The Embedded Beat: Maker movement will fuel the innovations needed for IoT edge nodes Earlier this year, Tom Simonite published an article in MIT Technology Review titled “Wanted for the Internet of Things: Ant-Sized Computers” that included a review of our Kinetis KL02 chip. The article highlights its size: 1.9mm2 X 2mm2, which makes the KL02 is the smallest 32-bit MCU in the world. And thanks to ARM’s powerful M0+ core, it brings robust real-time embedded processing capabilities to enable what Dr. Prabal Dutta of the University of Michigan calls “smart dust.”

10 environmental sensors that go along with you airqualityegg.com/Screen capture Over the past few years, the world of clean technology has seen a major influx of environmental sensor technologies. From ones that you can make yourself to those that are inspired by nature, the field has included many interesting takes on a technology that is proving to be more and more important, but the most significant trend in environmental sensors has been in personal, portable devices that measure air and water quality from our pockets or wrists. By making these sensors small and usually Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled, merely carrying out our normal daily routines could make citizen scientists of us all, significantly increasing the amount and precision of environmental data through crowdsourcing.
