Using Widcon, the latest and future Samsung ARM Processors and memory are stacked directly through TSV (Through Silicon Via) technology, this is the next step after Package-on-Package (PoP) designs where there is a circuit board between the processor and memory, thus data had to move through wires. In the new Widcon Processor and Memory package from Samsung, this means data can move through each ball and memory bandwidth becomes wider up to and beyond 17GB/s. This structure also brings better energy efficiency. Higher bandwidth allows application processor to perform maximum performance even at low clock speed. Moreover, superior thermal dissipation comes from TSV structure also enables the new Exynos 5 Octa processor and likely future Exynos6 to maximize the full potential performance of the processor at a lower power consumption.

4K video recording and playback on a phone is amazing. Here Sony shows and talks about their Qualcomm S801 powered 4K video support on their new flagship Sony Xperia Z2 phone. They also show awesome 4K video playback using MHL 3.0 to a huge Sony 4K TV. Sony also ships a new stereo microphone accessory for higher quality microphone support.
NXP Semiconductors demonstrates their new Qi wireless charging transmitter device, which integrates all the circuits for a 5V mobile phone charger in an extremely small package measuring only 5-mm square. Using the NXP solution, fewer than 10 external components are needed to build a complete low-power 5V Qi A5/A11 wireless charging transmitter, alongside the Qi coil and resonant capacitors. The small footprint of the NXP NXQ1TXA5 system-on-chip means that the whole transmitter sits on a PCB of less than 1.5 cm-square with components on a single side. This opens up interesting possibilities for innovative wireless charging pad designs, including fitting the transmitter within the center of the Qi coil.
