NO RATINGS
Actually soft modems usually consume more power than dedicated hardware modems. The Cognovo spokesman is saying his company's new chip achieves about the same power to maybe a few percent more power than a hardware modem -- and if that's true, that's quite an acheivement.

NO RATINGS
It is quite true that a soft modem will consume less power as compared to a hardware based modem, but the modem needs to be tightly coupled with the device operating system to get the best our of the software modem. So it depends totally on the device integration and efficient drivers.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
