Acer BYOC is a cross-platform, multi-device, multi-network cloud system to create, personalize IoT devices to help make IoT devices be successful, where the IoT cloud apps are run on edge devices, to gateways to the cloud.
MediaTek shows their new MT7623 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 for IoT gateways, WiFi hotspots, and media routers using Linux, OpenWrt that supports 4×4 11ac, can deliver up to 2Gbps broadband service as well as the high throughput that is required by smart phones at home. MediaTek MT7683 features a world’s-first AP router with a Mali 450 GPU and HDMI/MIPI for displaying the status of connected IoT devices via a TV or display. MediaTek’s Gateway IoT solution addresses the issue of bottlenecks in home gateways that people experience with existing routers on the market, as homes stream several HD or 4K video streams and stream to Smartphones, Tablets and IoT devices in the home. When YouTube or Netflix might be buffering in your home, it might be more often an issue with your home router than with net neutrality like backbone to last mile bandwidth issues, the ARM Processors in Home Gateways and Routers need to be upgraded to faster performance with more bandwidth within your home. Then MediaTek also launches the MT7687 for Wi-Fi N at a very low power consumption for IoT devices with a low power ARM Cortex-M4 on the SoC.
MediaTek is shipping hundreds of millions of ARM Processors each year, second Smartphone chip provider by volume after Qualcomm, MediaTek is launching their Internet of Things optimized ARM Processors for Smart Homes, for wide area and short area networks connectivity. MediaTek pioneered the Turnkey solution 10 years ago for feature phones and they do exactly the same for Smartphones, enabling fast time to market for smart mobile technology.
Ian Drew (ARM CMO EVP Marketing and Business Development) talks about the IoT opportunity, he talks about innovation, scalability, power efficiency, how a user friendly user interface and the development of killer apps are key for the success of companies building solutions for IoT that will cover the whole world.

Rockchip RKi6000 is claimed to be the lowest power Wi-Fi in the world, similar to that of Bluetooth 4.0 LE, it is designed for IoT applications, for Smart Homes, for smart lights, doors, kitchens, wearables, consumer electronics, home appliances, home safety, automation systems, automobiles and medical equipment, etc. Rockchip says that it can run for 35 years on AAA Batteries (when set to only ping data only once every several minutes) The RKi6000 uses Rockchip’s new ultra-low power Wi-Fi and memory technology to reduce power consumption of IoT (Internet of Things) smart devices by 85%, with power consumption equal to that of Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), with receiving power consumption around 20mAh during use, 85% lower than standard Wi-Fi from competitors claims Rockchip. When compared with the Bluetooth/ZIGBEE standard, Rockchip says that Wi-Fi is more convenient to use for IoT.
At Computex 2015, ARM launches their new ARM Cordio Radio IP ultra low power Bluetooth LE 4.2. It has an analog RF component, a digital baseband modem component and mbed IoT subsystem running on an ARM Cortex-M3, based around the mbed OS and mbed device server allowing to build a solution around IoT devices and to connect them to the web. The ARM mbed OS runs on ARM Cortex-M devices. ARM is partnering with TSMC using their 55ULP process to dramatically lower the power consumption getting a 40% reduction in dynamic power consumption and a 25% reduction in the leakage.

Enfucell is a customized battery supplier to the printed electronics industry. The company has developed SoftBattery®, a thin, flexible and eco-friendly printed power source and at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe event in Berlin it showcased a range of products based on this battery. It includes a powered wireless golf sensor patch which was developed in a joint project with Qualcomm. The patch is attached to a golf club head for measuring acceleration and angular velocity. The acquired data is transferred via low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to an application on a mobile device. Enfucell battery powers the BLE data transmission without additional capacitor demonstrating the highest peak power capability in the industry. Battery is also fully integrated to the system.
The disposable patch is helping golf players to improve their swing. This is the first time that a player can actually get feedback from the club head. A fully integrated printed battery enables thin and light construction which does not interfere with the normal stroke. Thanks to the BLE communication, data can be analyzed on site on the driving range during a training session. The data is collected to and processed on an Android tablet.
A similar patch can be tailored for other racquet sports, shooting, bowling, etc. Enfucell is looking for partners for commercializing the product. The new product platform completes Enfucell application range with previously introduced temperature logger (collaboration with NXP) and iontophoresis patch (collaboration with The Ionto Team, Spain). Also these products have fully integrated Enfucell battery technology. All of these are shown in the video. To learn more see http://www.PrintedElectronicsWorld.com
