One of the funniest lines in the 1992 animated Disney movie “Aladdin” is when the frenetic blue Genie, voiced by the incredible Robin Williams, describes his situation: “PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS; Itty-bitty living space,” referring to his life in a lamp. … Continue reading
Some critical considerations for SoC and Silicon Realization teams thinking about using ARM Cortex-A7 or ARM Cortex-A8 processor cores
ARM sort of dropped the introduction of the ARM Cortex-A7 processor core out of the sky a couple of weeks ago (see “ARM drops Cortex-A7 core on unsuspecting market, devastates low-power SoC and application-processor landscapes. What’s it all mean?”), so … Continue reading
ARM drops Cortex-A7 core on unsuspecting market, devastates low-power SoC and application-processor landscapes. What’s it all mean?
ARM has just announced the ARM Cortex-A7 processor core for SoC designers and the low-power landscape will never be the same again. Why? Because the Cortex-A7 core implemented in a 28nm process technology is reportedly one fifth the size of … Continue reading
Apps and gestures on tablets and smartphones: If I can see you shake your booty, what is it you expect me to do about it?
Rick Merritt in EEtimes reports today that Qualcomm has just acquired some of the assets of gesture-recognition pioneer GestureTek and plans to insert that technology into future Snapdragon SoCs targeting smartphones, tablets, and consumer devices. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoCs are based … Continue reading
