Microcontrollers offer advantages over other processors for IoT deployments, including efficient energy use. Understand the market and criteria for microcontroller selection
"The microcontroller is one of the most commonly used components in IoT deployments, but picking the right one for each IoT project requires some consideration.
The small, integrated circuit typically includes a processor, memory, and input and output peripherals -- all of which are contained on a single chip. It's dedicated to control a limited number of functions -- often just a single operation, such as regulating the operations of electromechanical systems in a device. The microcontroller design performs a specific task, and then it's embedded into a system where it perpetually runs that function..."
