Freescale made an ARM microcontroller that’s 1.9 mm x 2.0 mm that’s fully functional. (link)
Announced today, the Kinetis KL02 measures just 1.9 by 2 millimeters. It’s a full microcontroller unit (MCU), meaning the chip sports a processor, RAM, ROM, clock and I/O control unit — everything a body needs to be a basic tiny computer.
The KL02 has 32k of flash memory, 4k of RAM, a 32 bit processor, and peripherals like a 12-bit analog to digital converter and a low-power UART built into the chip. By including these extra parts, device makers can shrink down their designs, resulting in tiny boards in tiny devices.
One of the foreseeable uses is for swallowable computers. Dystopian future concerns aside, this could be great for medical uses as far as creating short-term medical sensors and whatnot.
