The ultra-low-power AI silicon startup Eta Compute has production silicon of its first product. The ECM3532 promises to enable AI and ML computation in IoT applications such as sensor nodes for a power budget of just microwatts.
ECM3532 is an extreme-low-power microcontroller designed by Eta Compute and introduced in 2020
This week, Eta Compute rolls out its second ML-oriented MCU, the ECM3532. The new chip is an upgrade from the debut ECM3531 device, with more performance and even lower power consumption.
Edge devices such as phones can get by with one tenth of a watt, but to go into what Eta Compute calls the extreme edge, power consumption has to be in the realm of 1 to 10mW.

While many IoT devices often need to be extremely low power, having an ability to harvest their own power is an even better scenario. Chip solutions continue to emerge aimed at the energy harvesting challenge.
