Dean Takahashi: NXP unveils a tiny 64-bit ARM processor for the Internet of Things

NXP Semiconductors has unveiled what it calls the world’s smallest and lowest-power 64-bit ARM processor for the Internet of Things (IoT).

The tiny QorIQ LS1012A delivers networking-grade security and performance acceleration to battery-powered, space-constrained applications. This includes powering applications for Internet of Things, or everyday objects that are smart and connected. If IoT is to reach its potential of $1.7 trillion by 2020 (as estimated by market researcher IDC), it’s going to need processors like the new one from NXP, which was unveiled at the Embedded World 2016 event in Nuremberg, Germany.
