The HardKernal ODroid-C2 is a board that outputs native 4K resolution over HDMI 2.0. It uses 4x ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.5GHz (Mali-450 GPU) coupled with 2GB DDR3 RAM. Upto 128GB eMMC HS400 and 200GB UHS-1 microSD cards are supported simultaneously. A Gigabit Ethernet port as well as 4USB Host and 1 USB OTG ports are present. The demo setup consists of a 4K TV playing 4K videos while using Ubuntu OS with MATE desktop environment. The board costs US$41.95 without the recommended eMMC memory.
An application engineer from NXP demonstrates here their S32V234 automotive-grade image recognition processor that is meant to be used in autonomous self-driving vehicle applications. The board uses 4 Cortex-A53 cores , and an "Apex" signal processor that allows the image to be split into parts and processed on with algorithms in addition to an ISP for filtering. The demonstration is a camera feed processed to show object tracking, with relative motion speed and direction indicated. The board is also meant to recognize traffic signals , and supports 4 cameras with specific framerates for 360° vision processing.
MultiTech is an IoT company that has on display here their solutions for smart agriculture. The setup uses LoRaWAN for data transmissions (frequencies range from 700MHz in China to 915MHz in Europe) with a conduit that contains the gateway. The conduit can be IP67 water and dust proof certified in order to be installed on a rooftop. The 15km range is valid for line-of-sight only. Battery life can vary depending on the amount of data transmitted, with a one-day transmission device lasting for as long as 15 years.The demo setup consists of a sensor submerged in the ground to detect water, with data transmitted to the conduit/gateway.
Microsoft shows Full Windows 10 on ARM, on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820:
we have an x86 Win32 desktop app running transparently with no changes, thanks to the magical emulation technology we've built into Windows 10 on ARM. This is Adobe Photoshop running great on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, we made zero changes to the app, it runs perfectly.
Microsoft says that they will launch this with the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, due to be released in 2017. But here for this demo, they show their full Windows 10 with x86 apps support running smoothly on the currently shipping Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.
It might be that Microsoft and Qualcomm want to have at least the performance of their next generation 835 to be able to offer a satisfactory x86 apps emulation performance.
The first usage case Microsoft aims for is the ARM Powered Laptop.
I think Microsoft should also try to run full Windows 10 with x86 apps emulation "as an app" on not-too-heavily-modified Android, support Android powered full Windows 10 Continuum concept. They can work with Qualcomm and Google on that. Basically dock your Android phone and it should run a full Windows 10 UI with full x86 apps support on the external Lapdock/desktopdock.
Interview with Ubiquitous Energy. They have developed the world's first truly transparent solar technology. ClearView Power transmits visible light and selectively absorbs non-visible light converting it to electricity. It can achieve power conversion efficiencies over 10% while maintaining up to 90% visible transparency. This is solar like you've never seen it. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
