The article focuses on the benefits of the eXtreme Low Power (XLP) Technology, and also focuses on low power devices with peripherals like USB, LCD and mTouch capacitive sensing, from Microchip Technology Inc. It says that the benefits of XLP include execution efficiency, extended battery life, and decline in active mode and sleep currents. It also focuses on the XLP Battery Life Estimator, a software which helps in developing extreme Low Power applications with Microchip's PIC MCUs.
