discuss how software complexity is driving the increase in the deployment of 32bit Cortex-M processors in the embedded market.

The ARM Cortex-M processor family is a range of scalable and compatible, energy efficient, easy to use processors designed to help developers meet the needs of tomorrow’s smart and connected embedded applications. Those demands include delivering more features at a lower cost, increasing connectivity, better code reuse and improved energy efficiency. The Cortex-M family is optimized for cost and power sensitive MCU and mixed-signal devices for applications such as Internet of Things, connectivity, smart metering, human interface devices, automotive and industrial control systems, domestic household appliances, consumer products and medical instrumentation.

PIXIO: World’s first auto follow camera system to film indoor and outdoor

Posted by – January 23, 2015

PIXIO is the first of its kind Auto Follow Cam to automatically track, film and zoom. Let’s say that you need to prepare a new video for your blog, moving around your studio, but no one to film you? You skate all day long and you want to have a better view than from your action-cam wide angle? Or maybe you train for next tennis championship and need to check your backhand on a video ? What if you had your own automated personal cameraman?
Developed by Move ‘N See, PIXIO is a radar-guided motorized mount for your DSLR, Camcorder, or any device that locks onto a companion wristband. The radar technology has the enormous advantage over GPS that it can track you inside and not only outside. It can even zoom in and out automatically, adjusting the frame to the distance through a "multi", "LANC", or "A/V R" cable going from PIXIO to your device. It can film 3 hours on the battery! Even churches can use it for their ceremonies! The crowdfunding campain is starting for $449 here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/world-s-first-indoor-outdoor-auto-follow-cam

The SuperMHL spec is for mobile devices, set-top boxes (STBs), Blu-ray players, Audio/video recorders, HDMI sticks and other source devices to TVs and monitors, as SuperMHL should be included in most future FHD/4K/8K TVs, PC Monitors, MHL has shipped in over 750 Million devices thus far. The new SuperMHL spec is also offering wider color gamut, deeper colors (to reduce color banding), high dynamic range (HDR) supported through signaling and through higher bandwidth.
