In the future, when I record my own videos of keynotes, I should try to get a direct audio feed from the system, I need to buy some good wireless microphone setup and plug that into my camera. I’ve heard of Sennheiser and Sony making decent wireless microphone systems, let me know if you have any good suggestion for which wireless microphone system I should buy, perhaps one with lapel microphone so that I can also use it more often when I video-blog, to have some better audio quality at conferences than just using my Sennheiser MKE400 shotgun microphone.
I’m in the San Francisco area until November 8th, so let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for tech companies that I should try to video-blog at in the Silicon Valley. Of course it’d be awesome to video-blog with Google engineers in Mountain View about Chrome OS on ARM and Android, but I don’t know how to contact someone there who can say it’s ok for them to invite me. I’ll video-blog at the GigaOm Roadmap conference on November 5th. I still have a few ARM Techcon videos to post, so check back. Some new devices, RK3066 HDMI Stick with BT and audio-out mini-jack and i.MX6 Quad-core HDMI Stick are going to be added to the Members Store also imminently, so also check back if you’re interested in that.
Versatile Express is ARM’s development board using real prototype silicon for developers to be able to work on future upcoming ARM designs months in advance of their release. Here is the Versatile Express TC2 being used to demonstrate software solutions that use the big.LITTLE configuration with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 and a triple-core ARM Cortex-A7.
ARM provides simulation models a year or more before the first silicon can be made for upcoming ARM Processors, here demonstrating how developers can work today to prepare software for upcoming ARM Processors such as the ARM Cortex-A57 64bit ARMv8 processors that are to be manufactured next year.
Presentation Title: Low-Power Leadership for a Smarter Future
Abstract: Innovation throughout the ARM partnership has resulted in products which have shaped our lives, transforming the way we work, our recreation and how we interact with society.
The future shows little sign of this rate of embedded innovation slowing. Faced with the massive growth in global energy consumption, expected to grow by about 70% in the next 25 years, consumers and commerce alike are looking to the electronics industry for solutions to help save energy and cost. This demand is creating opportunities for ‘smart energy’ innovation throughout the ARM partnership in three key areas: the smart grid, smart meters and, lastly, the connected appliances and systems (including sensors) – that are so important for the Internet of Things. The ability for these appliances to communicate through distributed sensor and control nodes will enable efficient performance, management and maintenance of a wide array of wirelessly connected devices, providing consumers and commerce with greater control over their lives and their energy consumption.
This keynote will track the growth of the ARM ecosystem and examine how, together, the partnership can continue to address the energy efficiency challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
