Micro-data-loggers are miniature autonomous systems intended to measure and memorize various physical parameters during a period of up to a few months or years. It is proposed that such devices be composed of only three main chips: a general management chip, a measurement chip, and a storage memory. The micro-data-loggers' context (including micropower) is discussed, and the main characteristics that such components must exhibit are described. The management chip has been realized and tested. The proposed structure of the measurement chip is based on the experience gained with several micro-data-loggers realized with standard components. The emphasis is on the programmability of the chips, which allows a broad range of applications
