Fireside chat with ARM and GLOBALFOUNDRIES at ARM Techcon 2012 in Santa Clara.
"The insatiable need for functional and feature integration on to Mobile SoCs, coupled with ever increasing performance demands has challenged the Foundries and Fabless Semiconductor companies alike. While the diminishing geometries of the process technologies have kept pace to address this challenge, the solutions for leakage power dissipation continued to fall behind threatening to thwart the advances in Mobility. The ground-breaking FinFET technology is the right low-power solution and will serve as an inflection point to further enable SoC-level integration and technological advances in this exciting era of Extreme Mobility. The panel will discuss how the next generation of FinFET technology will change the mobile revolution again."

Calxeda's VP of Marketing Karl Freund talks about the status of Calxeda's ARM Powered server solutions and how they are launching their upcoming ARM Cortex-A15 32bit and then ARM Cortex-A57 32/64bit processors, what type of markets they expect to reach in the months and years to come.
Cadence talks about some of their latest EDA solutions at ARM Techcon 2012 including the implementation of a 14nm Cortex-M0 processor in collaboration with IBM.
Mentor Graphics talks about some of the latest EDA solutions that they are bringing to the market at ARM Techcon 2012.
Check back for my full video recording of this mornings ARM keynote filmed here at ARM Techcon 2012 in Santa Clara. Let me know what kinds of questions you would like me to ask them on video.
THL shows a couple interesting MediaTek MT6577 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 based smartphones with decent 4.3" qHD and 4.5" 720p screens.

Here's my overview video showing some of the latest best value 7" Android tablets that I have found in Shenzhen on this trip. At least the samples that I was able to buy. $40 A13 800x480, $65 RK3066 1024x600, $80 NS115 1024x600 IPS, and there's also the sub-$50 VIA 8850 (which can run a Windows RT clone UI on top of Android), and I compare these with the $199 Kindle Fire HD.
Here's my overview video of the latest ARM Powered HDMI Sticks that I have found in Shenzhen China, including the $30 Allwinner A10 single-core ARM Cortex-A8, $40 Rockchip RK3066 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9, $89 Freescale i.MX6 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 and the $150 HiMedia Q5 HiSilicon Hi3716C single-core ARM Cortex-A9 Set-top-box running the interesting HiControl Android application for remote controlling, mouse and mirroring support from any Android tablet and phone to your HiMedia set-top-box.
Here's a sample recorded in 1080p using the new Nikon 1 J2 camera in 1080p Fine quality mode. This camera does not support external shotgun microphone input, but Nikon has a slightly larger device that does support an external microphone.
