Rockchip RK3168 dual-core 28nm HKMG ARM Cortex-A9 launched

Posted by Charbax – April 13, 2013

Here's my latest walk through the Rockchip booth featuring Chen Feng Vice President at Rockchip, walking through all the latest developments at Rockchip. Including their equation for performance per dollar per power consumption. Rockchip's Android software optimization strategies, including some talk about some of their Chromium OS and Ubuntu experiments and some little talk about what Rockchip wants to do to support the hackers that want to build on top of their platform. Please join the ARMdevice Unlisted Mailing List https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/armdevices-unlisted to suggest how this description can be improved and to help me write the next batches of titles and descriptions so that I can release more Hong Kong HKTDC trade show videos sooner!

Allwinner shows A31S, A20, A31 tablets, HDMI sticks, game pads, projectors and development boards

Posted by Charbax – April 13, 2013

Allwinner Technology has an enormous booth showing off some of the latest implementations of their A31, A31s and A20 chipsets.

The quad-core A31 has been available for four months and already shipped more than 1 million units. The quad-core A31s started shipping at the end of March 2013 and has the same quad-core and GPU but is geared towards smaller displays (with less memory bandwidth.) They have introduced the A20 dual-core chip, at a price point quite close to the single core.

Their booth showed more than a dozen HDMI stick and small set-top box like computers. One of the dongles was running the mobile-oriented A20 SoC, which could be poised to take over that market at low cost. The A20 is a low-cost, dual-core Cortex-A7. The A20 is pin compatible with the A10 and offers integrated support for camera sensors. This is looking like a very capable chip to power a variety of low cost devices.

The Allwinner booth was showing off a very cool gamepad built with the A31, running Android 4.1, a built-in screen with 1280 x 800 resolution, and game controllers on the left and right sides of the screen. It works like a self-contained gamepad but also serves as a game controller that can product the game on a large HDMI display. The controller has front and back facing cameras, 1GB of DDR3 and 16GB of internal storage. There was no English-name known for the device, which was developed by www.ibenx.com, one of Allwinner's many partners.

Wits-Technology was showing a development kit for Allwinner's chips Other partners showed off full-sized and micro projectors built with Allwinner chips. A mobile karaoke amplifier with built-in tablet display was built around Allwinner chips. A novel, Android-based 13.3" clamshell laptop was running the A20; faster A31 based laptops are expected later this month. Shenzhen Next-Huawen Technology Co., a design house, was showing off their tablet with keyboard dock. Allwinner says they are studying ChromeOS and also considering support for Linux based distributions like Ubuntu. The company says they have released software supporting the A31 to the open source community through a British company. Does anyone have a contact for that open source partner?

Thanks Brian for the title/description!

I’m looking for help to write good titles/descriptions on videos

Posted by Charbax – April 12, 2013

So I just filmed 40 video in one day, the Hong Kong fairs are totally awesome thus far. But with all those videos that I film during the day, I don't have much time left to do following:

1. re-watch what I filmed during the day

2. listen carefully to company names, product names, processors, and prices if mentionned and ther technical details to include those things in the titles and descriptions before publishing each video.

Writing good titles and descriptions on all my videos takes as much time as filming the actual videos.

So I am looking for volunteers here among you who would be willing to be the first to watch my videos as unlisted yet un-published videos without titles and descriptions and then if possible post me back a good title an description that I can use on each video following these guidelines for how I usually title videos:

1. [price of main most interesting product if price is mentioned] [processor used] [device type tablet/phone] [evt other special feature] by [company name]

description usually goes something like this:

2. Company name [URL of company website if can be found or/and is mentioned/showed in video] releases blah blah that does blah blah etc. If possible the description can be very detailed going through all the things talked about in the video. But it can also just be 1 or two sentences to be good enough.

3. If possible some relevant tags would also be nice, but otherwise I can use the same tags for all the videos filmed at the same conference.

Please apply for membership to the ARMdevices Unlisted mailing list if you would like to help me with this work and I can add you to the mailing list where I'd post each of the unlisted videos as soon as they are uploaded. You can then reply in the thread when you've got a title/description that can be used. I can maybe also pay you something per post, if you want money over paypal, especially if the titles/descriptions can get to be much better and significantly improves people's experience and the searchability of the videos.

It'd be nice if Google could use voice recognition and automatically write good summaries for the titles and descriptions for all the videos. But for now Google doesn't seem to be able to do this.

If someone can help me with this, perhaps I can get time to video-blog 20-30% more videos and perhaps also I can get time to get a bit of sleep between each video-blogging days, which would be nice especially during these days where I'd like to try to get through video-blogging at hundreds of Chinese companies preferably interestingly.

In any ways, my Hong Kong hotel internet upload speed is terribly slow right now. I read online that people in Hong Kong can get 1000mbit Fiber to the home, but I can barely get a bit over 1mbit/s upload speed here from my hotel. So it may get difficult for me to upload 15-20GB of videos each day. I'll try to get a fast upload tomorrow at the HKTDC Fair, hopefully it'll be possible to then upload during the day while I video-blog. Another reason for it being nice with some help from you helping me to get good titles and descriptions written.

Posted by Charbax – April 11, 2013

This is perhaps the best looking MediaTek MT6589 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 phone that I have seen yet out of China. I don't know where the Vivo brand comes from, but this phone is kind of impressive although it is kind of expensive for a MT6589 phone. It includes DAC audio using on-board Cirus Logic chip which provides quite high quality sound.
