MBus is the next-generation interconnect that enables the millimeter-scale computing class

MBus is a chip-to-chip bus designed for ultra-constrained systems. MBus is a multi-master bus supporting an arbitrary number of nodes, priority arbitration, efficient acknowledgements, and extensible addressing, with only four wires and consuming only 3.5 pJ/bit/chip.

MBus is power-aware, enabling the design of power-oblivious systems. Individual chips can fully power off and MBus will automatically take care of all the tricky details.

MBus was invented and built by a team of researchers at the University of Michigan:
