With three licensees presenting mobile possibilities, the power management engineering on the A15 must have been well done. Recall issues on power which forced Apple to move to Intel from PowerPC (e.g., my brother has the last iMac G5, with a chip that was too hot for the PowerBook). With the A15, mobiles will be pushing up from the smartphone into the netbook space ...
The fact that ARM intends to work with the Linux community to unleash the power of the A15 speaks mountains for seeing ARM in all mobile devices using sophisticated apps such as 3-D imaging and video in an "all-connected world". Many more wireless mobile opportunities for ARM.
ARM Cortex A15 Eagle seems to be a very feature rich processor. Looking at the extraordinary features it seems that it is being targeted towards the servers and networking equipments.
It will surely get its place in to the embedded networking equipments.
The discussion also leads towards mobile servers if WiMax chipsets can be embedded in to a mobile device.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
