    Article: Smart mobile SoCs: Made in China-apple-wwdc-2016-keynote-1-min-1-jpg

    I was in-person and live at Apple’s WWDC keynote in San Francisco. The following are my quick takeaways from the event.

    Watch and watchOS:
    Apple is focusing on exactly what they should be with watchOS, and that’s speed, ease of use and upping the ante in health and fitness. With the first Watch and watchOS, Apple solved many of the problems with wrist wearables, but not all of them. Watch was perceived by many as slow.

    When I was at Atrenta, we always thought it would be great to do as-you-type RTL linting. It’s the natural use model for anyone used to writing text in virtually any modern application (especially on the Web, thanks to Google spell and grammar-checks). You may argue that you create your RTL in Vi or EMACS and you don’t need no stinking GUI. I have bad news for you – you are now officially part of the older generation. “Kids” graduating these days expect GUI support for ...

    You may not know this, but on-time delivery at expected performance with 5G is being determined right now in engineering labs across the globe. This is true even though end user deployments won’t be for another three to four years. You see, the ground is being laid right now with manufacturers, operators and standards bodies. With 5G being so far away, there is ...

    When you think of a DSP IP, you tend to think of very targeted applications - for baseband signal processing or audio or vision perhaps. Whatever the application, sometimes you want a solution optimally tuned to that need: best possible performance and power in the ...
