I am sure you are right that ARM is in graphics for the long haul and I also believe it will win market share from Imagination -- but how much and how quickly?
The point I was trying to make was that Imagination WAS the incumbent with STMicroelectronics and ST-Ericsson, got displaced by ARM Mali in the U8500 but has now regained a key position.
If ARM is going to gain market share in graphics it needs to win customers AND hold on to them.
Is this an overstatement of the situation? ARM is getting into the graphics business, and Imagination is the installed champ, so doesn't make sense that Imagination will win few?
Arm needs integrated high end graphics to compete with Intel's Atom chips, so it will be there for the long haul.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
