Windows 10 IoT Core runs on Raspberry Pi and Inventec Avatar advanced Bluetooth Beacon

Posted by Charbax – March 10, 2016

Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core is Windows 10 for the IoT market. Windows 10 IoT Core is free, Windows 10 IoT Core Pro is licenced and sold to OEMs like Inventec here showing their Qualcomm APQ8009 powered Inventec Avatar also connecting to Microsoft Azure, bringing advanced Bluetooth beacon platform with Wi-Fi cloud access to upload the log on Azure. Windows 10 IoT Core is also shown running on Raspberry Pi. From a Universal Windows app a developer can talk directly to the sensors and modules on the Raspberry Pi. Windows 10 IoT core is Windows 10 that can run on lower spec ARM devices, taking up about 200megabytes of space, can run on just 256MB RAM.

Microsoft Windows 10 Continuum on ARM

Posted by Charbax – March 9, 2016

Microsoft is proud to present their Windows 10 Continuum running super smoothly on Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 based Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950XL, the Microsoft branded devices resulting from the acquisition of Nokia, following a huge work by Microsoft together with their partners such as Qualcomm, to bring a full Windows 10 experience to ARM, powering the future of the Desktop and the Laptop through an ARM Powered smartphone, outputting a full Windows experience to an external display using DisplayPort over USB Type-C through a desktop dock or a laptop dock.

Backwards compatibility of x86 Windows apps can be supported through a cloud solution, such as the one HP is providing with their HP Elite x3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 based Windows Continuum phone coming out a few months from now.

I believe the best solution for Microsoft will be to support Windows 10 on Android, so when you dock an Android phone through a desktop dock or a laptop dock, then Microsoft needs to make sure that a full Windows 10 Continuum on ARM experience can be outputted from the Android phone on that secondary display. Microsoft needs to make Windows 10 an "external-only" home replacement which needs to work on any Android device.

DisplayPort 1.4 Brings 8K Support and Lossless Video Compression over USB Type-C

Posted by Charbax – March 9, 2016

Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Executive Director Bill Lempesis (who I previously interviewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4PGoVR3ENo) introduces DisplayPort 1.4 A/V standard, which VESA developed, with input and cooperation from more than 230 global members. DP 1.4 includes a number of next-generation features, including capabilities for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 8K video across the USB-C connector. It also features, for the first time, VESA’s Display Stream Compression Standard (DSC) standard, which enables up to 3:1 video compression with visually lossless performance. Stephane Boisclair, senior hardware designer for Hardent, provides an in-depth description of the latest DSC specification update, v1.2. A VESA member company, Montreal-based Hardent develops IP cores to support DSC encoding and decoding. DSC 1.2, which supports up to 16 bits per color and HDR, has great implications for high-end TVs and PCs, as well as automotive applications, where the growing number of camera sensors requires less cabling and greater range.

7Gbit/s Wi-Fi using 802.11ad over 60Ghz by Qualcomm

Posted by Charbax – March 5, 2016

Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. shows off 802.11ad, the next generation Wi-Fi over 60Ghz, that enables data transfer speeds at up to 7Gbit/s. The 60 GHz signal cannot typically penetrate walls but can propagate off reflections from walls, ceilings, floors and objects using beamforming. When roaming away from the main room the protocol can switch to make use of the other lower Wi-Fi bands on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz at a much lower rate, both of which can propagate through walls. 802.11ad is supported in Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Qualcomm Atheros Qualcomm Internet Processor (IPQ) 8064 reference designs combined with its QCA9500 802.11ad chipset. Letv's first Snapdragon 820 smartphone will support it. New Wi-Fi Access points from Elecom, NEC and TP-Link support it, and Acer and Asus plan to release laptops with 802.11ad. SiBEAM, Inc., a Lattice Semiconductor company, and Peraso Technologies, Inc. will also deliver Adapters to the market.

Sharp Robohon speaks English at the Qualcomm booth at MWC 2016

Posted by Charbax – March 5, 2016

Sharp Robohon (which I previously filmed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiZSL3o8L7M) is Sharp's vision for the future of the smartphone. A pocket-sized humanoid Robot, with built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, LTE Sim card slot, it has a built-in projector, microphone, speaker. The concept is to use AI conversations to bring usefulness as a notification robot. I think Sharp needs to mass manufacture it, sell it worldwide for the price of an iPhone, and load all kinds of AI apps so it can be powered by Google, Amazon, Microsoft or anyone else who is making an AI voice assistant.
