The Storm System
The Storm platform was designed to meet all the requirements of a general purpose modern wireless platform.
A modern wireless platform is defined in several aspects:
More flash and RAM are required with the bursted computational requirements.
The platform must provides a rich set of peripherals, while also remaininng compact.
The ideal is a device that can operate from a battery for the shelf life of the battery (5-10 years), and spends nearly all of its awake time doing useful work (as opposed to the state transition time from active to idle and back).
A next-generation mote platform should retain the ability to “do nothing well” as it increases in its capabilities.
The platform should provide a form of non-volatile storage.
