Posted by Charbax – November 29, 2016

Heidi Dohse (who I interviewed here), Senior Program Manager at Google, shares her insights on empowering patients at the IDTechEx Show! on Nov 16. 2016. As a lifelong heart patient, Heidi pursued her desire to become an athlete and competitive cyclist. After having open heart surgery in 2010, she used wearable devices and technologies to provide the data she needed to go from the hospital bed to back on the bike and across the finish line of her first bike race.

Posted by Charbax – November 26, 2016

Watch here below Greg Yreic's Keynote full video titled: Moore's Law: Where are we and which way are we going? | ARM TechCon 2016

The doubling of transistor density every 18 months has been an exponential greater than any experienced in the human endeavor. But, as we know, the pace is slowing, creating uncertainty for our industry but also opportunity. Yeric will explore innovation from the transistor to the system level, and he sees the opportunity to not only continue effective transistor scaling, but to create exciting new products along the way.

About the speaker: Greg Yeric began his career at Motorola's Advanced Products Research and Development Laboratories in the area of semiconductor process integration, subsequently working at TestChip Technologies, HPL Technologies, and Synopsys, in the areas of test structures, technology development, and yield analysis. For the last 8 years, Dr. Yeric has been with ARM Holdings in Austin, Texas, where he leads the Future Silicon Technology group within ARM Research. His group's activities include novel technology incubation, design technology co-optimization and predictive technology. He earned PhD in Microelectronics at The University of Texas at Austin in 1993.

ARM Powered Shoe Kiss & Tell

Posted by Charbax – November 1, 2016

Kiss & Tell, an ARM Powered Shoe. Kiss & Tell was a concept that turned into a reality all done on ARM Technology. The idea, a shoe that can change the patterns on the straps based on the touch of a finger from an app on your mobile. For example, if you were invited to have tea with the Queen, the Union Jack could be displayed in seconds; if it was Valentine’s Day, hearts could be flashing. The sole, upper, and interchangeable heels were designed in Tinkercad on an ARM Powered Chromebook, printed using an ARM Powered 3D printer, and then spray painted with custom car paint. The circuitry and the LED designs were both done on Raspberry Pi 3. The shoe is powered by an ARM Cortex-M0+ that sits on an Arduino MKR1000 board that is hidden in the shoe’s upper. You can contact Sandra Larrabee of ARM Marketing to learn more about ARM or Kiss & Tell here: sandra.larrabee@arm.com
