Energy Micro's ultra low power microcontroller receives environmental design award

September 13, 2010 | Paul Buckley | 222901450
Energy Micro has won the Enviromental Design Award at the UK's annual e-Legacy Awards. The award, made in recognition of the company's ultra low power EFM32 Gecko microcontroller, was presented to Energy Micro's Director of Sales EMEA Ian Fletcher.

Now in their fourth year, the e-Legacy awards have become synonymous with Corporate Social Responsibility and reflect an ethos of contributing to the common good, either through aspects of a company's operations or its products.  The Environmental Design Award specifically recognises energy-saving or fuel/power- efficient electronic design.

Winners of the e-Legacy awards are selected via a public on-line vote, with finalists in seven award categories.

Energy Micro's EFM32 Gecko microcontroller family consumes a fraction of the energy required by other 8, 16 and 32-bit microcontroller solutions.  The EFM32 Gecko microcontroller is in full production, and details of the software and pin-compatible Tiny Gecko and Giant Gecko products have also been announced.  The Gecko microcontrollers are supported by the energyAware tool suite and a community of third party suppliers providing IDE/compilers, debug systems, development kits and real time operating systems.
