Virtual tour at ST Microelectronics MWC 2018 booth, checking out Smart Home demo using BlueCoin board and chats with Alexa and sees how motion and voice sensors can be used to automate your home. Also sees MEMS Micro-Actuators demonstrating ST’s PETRA technology which is tipped to revolutionize headphones. Other demos include a water proof pressure sensor, touch sensors that can be used even with gloves, an NFC smart tile (ST25DV at http://bit.ly/ST25DV ) which can tell you whether your goods have been shaken, Deep convolution neural networks demonstration talking about artifical intelligence on microcontrollers and used on sensors as part of the IoT, super accurate Teseo GNSS ADAS sensor that works on all satellite constellations and more.

OXI on Lapdock, runs Windows 10 apps in Android
Laurent Alaguero of Auxens shows their latest version of OXI the Desktop productivity user interface for Android phone’s external displays, such as here demonstrating running on the BQ Aquaris X2 Pro which has Displayport USB Type-C support. Here demonstrating OXI running with the Lapdock launched on crowdfunding on Indiegogo starting at $100. OXI can bring in and run Windows 10 apps in resizable Windows inside of this Android user interface, no need to boot all the way into a Windows 10 remote desktop just pulling in the needed Windows apps over the Internet, using virtualization, streaming, with servers that can nearby and served through Enterprise’s existing Windows server infrastructure. The Windows 10 apps can feel like they are running locally on Android with minimal lag. Auxens is now reaching out to Smartphone manufacturers to try to pre-install OXI on shipping phones with Displayport USB Type-C support. Hopefully they can integrate by getting some API access with http://shadow.tech cloud PC service and hopefully OXI comes with the Cosmo Communicator that is being developed and which I filmed here

Self-driving rover using the 96Boards Carbon development board
At the Linaro Connect, Sahaj Sarup, Applications Engineer at 96Boards, based on the IoT Edition Carbon Development Board powered by the STMicroelectronics STM32F401RE ARM Cortex-M4 running Zephyr. There are 6 ultrasonic sensors preventing it from bumping into things, 4 IR sensors preventing it from falling down, there are LED’s also representing the distance to the objects on each side of the self-driving rover.
STM32H7 ARM Cortex-M7 by STMicroelectronics
STMicroelectronics has on display their ARM Cortex-M7. The H7 is the successor to the F7. The H7 uses 40nm process node over 90nm for the F7, allowing for a higher 400MHz clock speed (compared to 200MHz). The demo setup is running a fractal program and has UARC, Ethernet and several display outputs. The faster speeds allows for graphics processing that earlier needed Cortex-A cores, with audio applications possible as well.
ARM Cortex-M33, ARM Cortex-M23, ARMv8-M, TrustZone, IoT Technology Suite
ARM launches their first ARM Cortex-M processors based on ARMv8-M architecture with ARM TrustZone technology,
IoT subsystem with ARM CoreLink system IP for fastest, lowest-risk path to silicon, Secure SoC designs fortified by TrustZone CryptoCell technology, Complete wireless solution with ARM Cordio radio IP for 802.15.4 and Bluetooth 5, Cloud-based service for secure management of IoT devices via ARM mbed Cloud, Optimized implementation on ARM Artisan IoT POP IP for the TSMC 40ULP process.
ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 are the first embedded processors based on the ARMv8-M architecture, bringing the proven secure foundation of ARM TrustZone to the most constrained IoT nodes. The majority of the top ten global MCU suppliers have already licensed one or both processors. Lead partners include Analog Devices, Microchip, Nuvoton, NXP, Renesas, Silicon Labs and STMicroelectronics.
The highly versatile Cortex-M33 features configuration options including a coprocessor interface, DSP and floating point computation, with increased performance and efficiency relative to Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4. The Cortex-M23 takes security to the most constrained devices, building on the standard set by Cortex-M0+ as an ultra-low power microprocessor in a tiny footprint
The new Cortex-M processors are backwards compatible with ARMv6-M and ARMv7-M architectures for direct and fast porting, accelerating product development. TrustZone CryptoCell-312 fortifies the SoC with a rich set of security features protecting the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of code and data.

uBirds Smart Strap converts any classic watch into a Smartwatch
uBirds displays their vision of the smartwatch, successfully funded on Kickstarter, they conceal the electronics inside the watch strap itself, allowing the user to use whatever watch they prefer as long as they buy the uBirds Smart strap. Based in Warsaw, Poland, uBirds’ concept belt is displayed to be very flexible without breaking, with thickness claimed to go down in the production version. Using an STM32L1 series ARM Cortex-M3 MCU, the uBirds strap also features NFC and input based on taps to the strap to control phone behavior. You can wirelessly charge it, it has a 3 day battery life.
