TechNexion is a design and manufacturing company showing in this video its engineering team, that designs IoT smart devices, development boards for the needs of projects like the ARM powered Android Things ecosystem by Google or Amazon Alexa Voice-Recognition development platform and its advanced manufacturing capabilities. In the video, we get a direct glimpse of how ARM modules and systems are designed and how much automation is being utilized in a smart SMT factory. The video tour takes you through all production stages from the module design to SMT manufacturing to post production functional testing. The factory churns out up to 250K PCBA per month. Filmed on location at the TechNexion factory in Taipei, Taiwan in June 2017.
Google is Enabling rich and immersive experiences in virtual and augmented reality, presented by Clay Bavor (at Google since 2005), Google Vice President of Virtual Reality where Google works to create an efficient and scalable software platform for rich VR and AR services to be powered by high performance, power-efficient ARM CPUs, GPUs, sensors, and where Google is also working with the Display insutry to bring amazing new ultra high resolution VR and AR displays to the market. As you can see in this video of the keynote, at the SID Display Week, Google announced they are working with Sharp to create ultra-high resolution LCD displays for VR optimized for very low lag time. Google also works to create 20megapixel per eye prototype VR and AR displays, amounting to 2.5x 4K resolution per eye. And Google is working with ARM and other companies to bring foveated rendering technology to not require the 100-150Gbit/s bandwith for VR and AR content once the microdisplays have such high resolution, this method involves using a camera to track where the eye is focusing and render a very high resolution of exactly what you’re looking at while keeping the resolution and detail lower for where you are not looking at directly, and doing all that accurately with minimal lag time.
HDMI 2.1 supports 4K120 and 8K60 uncompressed over a new 48Gbps cable, even supporting up to 10K 120fps compressed. HDMI 2.1 also supports Dynamic HDR, eARC and Game Mode VVR. Dynamic HDR enables variable HDR on a scene-by-scene even frame-by-frame basis. eARC enables object-based 3D audio. Game Mode VRR features variable refresh rate, which enables a GPU to display the image at the moment it is rendered for more fluid and better detailed gameplay, reducing or eliminating lag, stutter, and frame tearing.
TechNexion shows the Android Things ARM Powered development platform designed to enable energy-efficient, secure and portable applications for Google's Internet of Things ecosystem strategy. The development platforms provide hardware that developers need to speed up their IoT projects on the Android Things platform as well as onto other supported platforms such as Ubuntu, Debian, Yocto Project, regular Android and more. TechNexion also continues to build on its complete lineup of System on Modules designed for modular, versatile, scalable and low-power applications that can be easily integrated into other devices for all types of IoT development.

Here is my third factory tour with faytech Tech. Co., Ltd (after I filmed the faytech 2013 tour and the faytech 2015 tour) , this time at their newest factory location, seeing over the past few years this company develop from a small startup company to a world leading industrial touch device manufacturer with advanced in-house manufacturing capabilities is quite impressive. You can see for yourself in this video how they develop. In the video, Arne Weber, CEO of faytech, walks us through their new factory. Currently they are on two floors, one for office and production, the other one as warehouse, incoming material check and test area featuring also several special innovative projects.
For any industrial or commercial touch devices projects, for embedded, PC, monitor, outdoor, indoor, rugged or optical bonded you can contact faytech to see if they can provide you with the right solution (as you can see how I filmed how faytech works with their partners and customers in New York for example) doing it their way to combine German engineering with Asian production capabilities and service, interested parties can contact faytech here:

ARM Media Processing Group VP, GM and Fellow, Jem Davies announces the ARM Mali-G72 GPU for Machine Learning, VR & High Fidelity Mobile Gaming. 1 billion Mali-based chips were shipped in 2016, With 1.4x the performance of last year's ARM Mali-G71 GPU, 17% more performance in machine learning (ML) efficiency, for local offline GPU compute computer vision facilitated by ALU and data path improvements to reduce energy consumed by data movements with 25% higher energy efficiency and 20% better area efficiency, with multiple Bifrost optimizations including increased tile buffer memory, tiler scalability and L1 cache.
For faster ARM Powered laptops, smartphones, servers and more, Nandan Nayampally, GM & VP of ARM’s Compute Processing Group announces the ARM Cortex-A75 and ARM Cortex-A55, the new fastest performance, most power efficient ARM designs for high end performance and for mid-range to entry level processing, the first processors launched on ARM DynamIQ technology, designed from the ground up for AI improvements, low latency, acceleration connections, ARM Cortex-A75 delivers 50% improvement in raw integer performance, even greater gains for specialized workloads at given nanometer manufacturing, with these also working even better on newer smaller nanometer manufacturing making these all that faster. ARM Cortex-A75's new performance enables faster ARM Powered Laptops and Smartphones with faster performance and better power efficiency, also suitable for infrastructure (servers, networking, more) and self driving cars and other uses in the automotive industry. ARM Cortex-A55 provides the new LITTLE to Cortex-A75’s big, with 2.5x the power efficiency of its predecessor, bringing performance to the edge across a variety of applications and performance points from IOT edge gateways to mainstream. Combining the two new CPUs in a DynamIQ big.LITTLE cluster gives you multiple configurations, and specifically doubles performance in a 1+7 configuration for example.

Enabling Trillions of ARM processors to be made cheaply to be embedded everywhere as envisioned by ARM owner Masayoshi Son, PlasticARM is an implementation of an ARM Cortex-M0 based 32-bit microprocessor SoC in plastic. Using PragmatIC’s technology, the flexible integrated circuit (FlexIC) is implemented in thin film metal oxides on a polymer substrate, with a total thickness of less than 10um. The latest version uses a 1um cell library, delivering a 10x improvement in footprint over the last 2 years, and significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in printed logic. PlasticARM demonstrates the potential for PragmatIC’s ultra-thin and ultra-low-cost plastic electronics to extend from smart packaging into areas such as wearables and security.
