The energy-friendly products of Energy Micro are now available from Glyn with the distribution agreement covering all activities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, BeNeLux, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, New Zealand and Australia.
Energy Micro offers a comprehensive portfolio of energy-friendly 32-bit microcontrollers and radio transceivers for ultra low power applications. The EFM32 Gecko microcontrollers include the energy efficient ARM Cortex-M4F, Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M0+ processors; the EFR4D Draco radios will also include Cortex-M3 for superior performance.
Energy Micro’s unique and free Simplicity Studio software suite has been developed to significantly cut development time and give embedded designers accurate information at the click of a button.
Glyn Jones, Managing Director and Owner of Glyn High-Tech Distribution believes the distribution agreement will help the company meet the needs of development engineers across the world who seek to extend the battery lifespan of their systems in a sustainable manner. The new generation of EFR4D wireless ARM microcontrollers opens up many new opportunities for Glyn.
According to Geir Førre, President and CEO of Energy Micro, Glyn’s distribution capabilities combined with their own product portfolio will see the two companies connect with development engineers and all important decision-makers in organisations that have to reduce energy consumption of their systems.
The energy-efficient 32-bit EFM32 by Energy Micro is particularly suitable for energy-saving applications such as electricity, gas and water meters, building automation, alarm and security systems as well as portable applications for medical technology. Benchmark measurements against previous energy-saving microcontrollers in the market have shown that EFM32 microcontrollers only use a quarter of the energy used by other 8-, 16- or 32-bit MCUs.
The lifespan of a 3V button battery can therefore be extended by at least 300% to more than 10 years.
