The article announces the release of MEMSIC's LOTUS wireless sensor platform. LOTUS is a high-performance wireless node platform which was created through the low power ARM7 Cortex M3 CPU and also integrates IRIS, TelosB and Imote2 on a single board. LOTUS is wired with a 32bit/100MHz processor, 64Kb SRAM, 512kB FLASH, 64MB serial FLASH memory as well as an integrated compliant radio on board antenna and a USB client with a mini-B connector which runs at 50mA on-state and 10uA in stand-by mode.
