That, and also the business model of this new start-up. Would they adopt the ARM soft IP model? It does not look like it, in which case they have a mountain to climb.

I'm confused. Why is everyone calling it a "faster, better, cheaper, lower power" processor at this stage? What evidence is there that any of the above is true?

Good luck to ICube. I reckon its success chiefly depends on how they can sell the architecture to some big Chinese telecom OEM's, like Huawei and ZTE. If they can make it as a "State will", it definitely will succeed. Remember TD-CDMA and TD-LTE? All the major telecom OEM's are licking their ass.

They could but I believe they are going to offer their own C/C++ and graphics compilers

This CPU is "independent" so not an ARM ISA, it is claimed.

It may not be necessary to even use the byte code -- parse the source then design hardware that evaluates the if clauses and does the appropriate assignments. I have done it for C statements. Also, using the byte code pretty much is done by a JIT compiler at run time so why can't they write a new JIT for their architecture and use existing compilers?

@jelvidge As mentioned above, a more detailed article is slated for the next edition of EE Times Confidential.

I don't think marketing is such a serious issue here. The primary issue is the competency of the team behind this project and the supporting infrastructure available to them in China. I said earlier however that economic and political issues were part of the equation. In that respect it might be worthwhile reviewing Andy Grove's take on the subject: http://www.citizenstrade.org/ctc/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/20100701_howtomakeanamericanjob_bloombergopinion.pdf

Not only that, but because existing architectures are indeed well established they need to show a compelling benefit to dislodge them. A few tens of percentage points will not suffice. Grove's Law would postulate they'd need around 10-fold improvement to disrupt the incumbents.

"ICube claims ... power-efficiency and cost-efficiency advantages over the established architectures". This is easy to claim but requires data to substantiate. I will, as the saying goes, believe it when I see it. (And I don't just mean the PowerPoint!)

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
