TI today announced the release of their new ultra-low power microcontroller codenamed – Wolverine.  TI achieves the “Wolverine” platform’s impressive power gains through its new 130-nm ultra-low-leakage (ULL) process technology.


  • Active power as low as 100 µA/MHz
  • 12-bit ADC 200Khz sampling at 75uA
  • RTC with calendar and alarm at 100nA
  • Reduction in wake up losses
  • < 7 µs to wake to active from standb
  • Adaptive LDO that responds to varying power requirements
  • FRAM
  • 250× less energy per bit with FRAM
