In “A Cortex M3-based Mote Platform,” JeongGil Ko of the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University, with Qiang Wang, Thomas Schmid, Wanja Hofer, Prabal Dutta, and Andreas Terzis describe the Egs mote platform based on the Cortex M3 microcontroller that focuses on medical sensing applications.

It uses an Atmel SAM3U microcontroller that runs up to 96 MHz and has up to 52 KB of RAM and 256 KB of Flash. This is combined with two radios (802.15.4 and Bluetooth), external flash, on board sensors, and a LCD touchscreen to enable a rich set of wireless sensing apps.
