The CALICE collaboration is developing highly granular calorimeter prototypes to evaluate technologies for experiments at a future lepton collider optimized for particle flow event reconstruction. These technologies include electromagnetic calorimeters with tungsten absorbers and silicon or scintillator active elements, and hadronic calorimeters with steel and tungsten absorbers with scintillator and gaseous detector active elements, the former with analog and the latter with purely digital and with semi-digital readout. The latest generation of these readout elements are optimised to fulfill the requirements of collider experiments, such as integrated electronics, power-pulsing and strategies for mass production. We will discuss the latest developments towards full highly granular calorimeter systems as well as performance highlights from beam tests.
