Gary Atkinson talks about future technologies for ARM, around the embedded space, radio technology and all other new R&D, new ideas, Weightless White Space radio standard and more.
The New Style of IT
It’s an exciting time to be in technology. The IT industry is at a major inflection point driven by four generation-defining trends: the cloud, social, Big Data, and mobile. These trends are forever changing how consumers and businesses communicate, collaborate, and access information. And to accommodate these changes, enterprises, governments and fast growing companies desperately need a “New Style of IT.” Shaping the future of IT starts with a radically different approach to how we think about compute – for example, in servers, HP has a game-changing new category that requires 80% less space, uses 89% less energy, costs 77% less – and is 97% less complex. There’s never been a better time to be part of the ecosystem and usher in the next-generation of innovation.

Intel confirms that they are ready to manufacture ARM Processors in their Fab. I’ve been suggesting this for years, now it seems to be true!
At the ARM developers’ conference today, Intel partner Altera announced that the world’s largest semiconductor company will fabricate its ARM’s 64-bit chips starting next year.
Intel is to provide what the market wants, if people want ARM Processors, why should Intel not fabricate them in their Fabs?
Altera Corporation today announced that its Stratix 10 SoC devices, manufactured on Intel’s 14 nm Tri-Gate process, will incorporate a high-performance, quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex™-A53 processor system, complementing the device’s floating-point digital signal processing (DSP) blocks and high-performance FPGA fabric.
Why wouldn’t Intel try to compete with Samsung, TSMC, Global Foundries to make the ARM Processor designs that the market wants!
Altera and Intel are pleased with the early results of the relationship between the companies and this announcement from Altera is consistent with the agreement we announced earlier this year. We have said that we will be open to manufacturing competitive architectures and would evaluate them on a case by case basis,
Also, I believe Intel is probably working on their own ARM Processors designs, why not ARM Intel for Laptops, for Tablets, for Smartphones, for Smart TVs, for the Internet of Things. I believe that Intel’s new CEO was put into place to lead this new strategy at Intel, to make the processors that the market demands for.
Who knows, maybe Intel is able to make some of the best ARM Processors on the market, who knows, maybe Apple wants to make their next ARMv8 64bit Processor in an Intel Fab! Maybe Nvidia, Qualcomm would be happy to have some of their next ARM designs manufactured in Intel’s Fab!
Check me on the Android Central show showing off my samples of some of the latest cheapest Android phones out of China. My range of latest phones include MediaTek MT6572 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 (512MB RAM) phones at $55 4″ (2G iPhone 5S style), $58 4″ 3G, $65 (3G SGS4-Mini style), $72 (3G SGS4 style), Spreadtrum 2G based at $36 4″ (2G Nokia windows phone style), $43 5.3″ (2G Note3 style), my Onyx E43 E Ink Android phone and Onyx Freescale iMX6 Solo Lite Android 4.0 E Ink E-reader.
Anyone else in the Silicon Valley would like to check out these devices? Let me know! I’ll be video-blogging at the ARM Techcon and Linaro Connect at the Santa Clara Convention Center during these next 4 days, then to spend another 6 days in San Francisco. I would like to visit the Twit Cottage next Sunday and I hope someone at Google invites me to their Mountain View headquarters!

I decided to buy a $279 ($303 with taxes) HP Chromebook 11 with the Exynos5250 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 with Mali-T604 inside, even though it would have been nice if it already would have been shipping with the newer Exynos5420 Octa Core ARM Cortex-A15/A7 with Mali-T628. I guess that Samsung doesn’t yet provide their latest big.LITTLE yet for third parties to ship in devices? As soon as a good cheap 13.3″ Exynos5420 Chromebook is available I’ll probably switch to that latest ARM Chromebook as my main video-blogging laptop.
I’m video-blogging at the ARM Techcon (October 29-31st), Linaro Connect (October 28th to November 1st), Samsung Developer Conference (October 27th), maybe also at Gigaom Roadmap 5-6th.
Let me know to my email if you know of any good ideas for places I should video-blog at while I am here in the Silicon Valley Bay Area.

Hampoo shows some of their OMAP5 PCB Designs, use cases may be for in-car entertainment systems, medial usage, industrial usage. Of course it also depends what Texas Instruments plans to do with OMAP5 precisely. Hampoo may be one of the leading PCB designers in Shenzhen designing special use case PCB designs, they have a long history working on OMAP3, OMAP4 and OMAP5 and they now also work on Exynos5 and some other designs to come. Hampoo showcases their naked eye 3D tablet also, based on OMAP4470, I also filmed Hampoo showing off their tablets at Computex here: http://armdevices.net/2013/07/19/arm-cortex-a9-glass-free-3d-tab-10-1inch-by-hampoo/
