Phoenix Microprocessors

University of Michigan is developing a Microprocessor which can run on very low energy. In sleep mode it requires energy in PicoWatts, Billionth of Watts. It is supposed to be used in applictaions like Medicine , Construction and Surveillance.
It has a very small battery of the form of Film which can be used power the microprocessor. A watch battery could run the Microprocessor for 240 years.
This opens way for a number of embedded applications and Nano computing in the times to come.
