Ultra-Low power MCU design

If anyone is working on an ultra-low power mcu application this article might be of help: [url] Spurious Vector!

Ganssle covers many issues relating to devices that need to run many years from coin cell batteries. (In general he proves that it is next to impossible to design an MCU based application that runs a decade or more on a CR2032, despite vendor claims.) Even if you are not looking to go 10+ years there is still a lot of helpful information.
