Samsung Uleashes Exynos 7 Octa ARM Cortex-A57 And Cortex-A53-Based 20nm Powerhouse Mobile Chip

Samsung Uleashes Exynos 7 Octa ARM Cortex-A57 And Cortex-A53-Based 20nm Powerhouse Mobile Chip | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
It's been a busy week in mobile. To recap, Google added a couple of Nexus devices to its lineup courtesy of Motorola and HTC, there's a new version of Android (Lollipop), and Apple rolled out new iPad tablets.
Richard Platt's insight:

Samsung's chip utilizes ARM's big.LITTLE Heterogeneous Multi Processing (HMP) to dump loads on the appropriate set of cores. For heavy lifting duties, the Cortex-A57 cores kick into high gear, while the Cortex-A53 cores handle less demanding loads, like background tasks. Unlike earlier versions of big.LITTLE, HMP enables all cores to fire up at the same time. This allows devices built around the Exynos 7 to be able to handle high-end tasks while balancing battery life.

Intel Data Protection Technology for Transactions encrypts transaction data from end to end, even from card readers.

Richard Platt's insight:

The new technology protects even the communications from the point of card swipe or other payment device attached to the POS. As a result, the conventional POS software running in the conventional Windows environment never sees sensitive transaction data, and neither can malware on the terminal. Intel partnered with NCR in the development of the Data Protection Technology for Transactions, which will be available to retailers in 2015

Qualcomm Makes a $2.5 Billion Bet on Bluetooth

Qualcomm Makes a $2.5 Billion Bet on Bluetooth | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
With its deal to buy CSR, Qualcomm is hoping that the slowdown in growth of smartphones will be offset by sales of networked appliances, Dominic Elliott of Reuters Breakingviews writes.
Richard Platt's insight:

For Qualcomm this is a long-term bet on the rise of the “Internet of Things.” CSR’s specialty is Bluetooth, the short-range radio technology that connects devices like watches and stereos to Internet-linked computers and smartphones.  As growth for smartphones slows, Qualcomm hopes this will be offset by consumers buying networked appliances. The industry analyst Gartner reckons that the typical family home in the rich world will contain more than 500 Internet-enabled consumer products within 8 years.

How Intel’s Core M Processors Could Hurt ARM Holdings and Help Microsoft

How Intel’s Core M Processors Could Hurt ARM Holdings and Help Microsoft | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
What do Intel’s new Core M processors mean for ARM Holdings and Microsoft? - Leo Sun - Tech and Telecom
Richard Platt's insight:

Intel's Core M is significant because it will allow Windows 8.1 tablets and convertible devices to be much sleeker, quieter, and more power efficient than ever. Just as Toshiba and HP's low-end Windows 8.1 tablets, Core M-powered fill out the top end of the market where the lonely Surface Pro 3 resides. It could also fuel the development of some impressive high-end Windows phablets in the near future.

Intel's strategy certainly won't kill ARM, but it could keep ARM-licensed processors out of the PC market while letting Intel carve out its own Microsoft-supported niche in smartphones and tablets.

Intel Pursues PC Revival With Core M Chips

Intel Pursues PC Revival With Core M Chips | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
Intel finally takes the covers off its next-gen Broadwell chips. Will they spur the long-awaited PC market bounce-back?
Richard Platt's insight:

Intel is focused on telling customers about new use cases, rather than a device's specs and speeds. "A pet-shop owner knows how to use a PC but doesn't know a lot," he said, noting that Intel now offers its Business App Portfolio, a bundle of free software for business tablets that provides out-of-box videoconferencing, security, cloud storage, and e-signature tools. Such software demonstrates that Intel helps deliver a full, easy-to-use commercial computing experience, not just hardware components, Garrison said, adding that the strategy shows how new machines add value where aging PCs simply can't.

big.LITTLE: ARM's Strategy For Efficient Computing

big.LITTLE:  ARM's Strategy For Efficient Computing | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
In Part I of this series, we discussed ARM's business model and how it works with its various partners as compared to Intel. Today, we're diving into a specific technology that ARM believes will allow it to differentiate its products and offer superior performance to Santa Clara and the upcoming 22nm Bay Trail. big.LITTLE is ARM's solution...
Richard Platt's insight:

big.LITTLE is ARM's solution to a particularly nasty problem: New process nodes no longer deliver the kind of overall power consumption improvements that they did prior to 2005. Prior to 90nm, semiconductor firms could count on new chips being smaller, faster, and drawing less power at a given frequency. In 2005, that stopped being true. Tighter process geometries still pack more transistors / sq mm, but the improvements to power consumption and maximum frequency have been falling every single node. Rising defect densities have already created a situation where -- for the first time ever -- 20nm chips won't be cheaper than the 28nm processors they're supposed to replace. This is a critical problem for mobile, where low power consumption is absolutely vital.

FCC chairman Tom Wheeler said "It's been long assumed that frequencies even higher up on the spectrum chart could not support mobile applications due to physical and technical limitations. But smart thinkers, innovators, and technologists are devising solutions to this previous perceived limitation,"   "By using innovative technologies that can simultaneously track and acquire multiple signals reflecting and ricocheting off obstacles in the physical environment, future devices might be able to leverage much higher frequency bands, those above 24GHz, for mobile applications. This technology could theoretically dramatically increase wireless broadband speeds and throughput – up to 10 gigabits per second."

The two dimensional material, which is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), is pretty finicky about generating electricity. If it is stacked in an even number of layers, it doesn’t do anything. But use an odd number and stretch it in the right direction, and the electricity will start flowing.

Richard Platt's insight:

Great animated video of The Gen Z Effect & the 6 Forces shaping the future. 

  1. Breaking Generations: Facing the imminent and immensely disruptive population redistribution that equalizes the number of humans globally in each of the thirteen five-year age groups from birth to sixty four. (i.e. ages 0–4, 5–9, 10–14…60–64.)
  2. Hyperconnecting: Moving toward exponentially hyper connectivity among people, computers, machines, and objects.
  3. Slingshotting: Exploiting disruptive advances in user experience and affordability that turn what was the cutting edge of technology into the norm, allowing large segments of the population to catch up, seemingly overnight, with technology pioneers.
  4. Shifting from Affluence to Influence: Leveraging the ever increasing ability to influence world events through communities that cut across age and other demographic boundaries, without the benefit of access to large pools of capital.
  5. Adopting the World As My Classroom: Pushing toward global availability and affordability of education through all levels of schooling and for any age.
  6. Lifehacking: Breaking through barriers, taking shortcuts, and otherwise outsmarting the system so that we can focus on outcomes rather than (bureaucratic/non- value added) processes, making meaning and purpose the center of our personal and professional experience.
