Rick, Another interesting development last week relative to K3V2 is Microsoft adding Huawei to the Windows 8 on ARM program: http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2012/2/29/microsoft-expands-windows-8-on-arm-approved-vendors-list-welcome-huawei2c-marvell.aspx

the recent trend of HW also including hiring star talent from silicon valley or else to lead /architect projects... which cut short the learning curve significently.

Don't worry, pretty soon China will be offshoring work...to the U.S.!

yep, be prepared, even TI, intel folks, ready to give up your car, biking to your next job. so you can compete better cost wise.

Nvidia does have an ARM architectural license, but it hasn't made use of it yet. Tegra3 was made in a 40nm high performance process at TSMC. Huawei's K3V2 was made in a 40 nm low power process at TSMC.

Our current best guess is Vivante, but it is ONLY A GUESS. If anybody knows anything about this, drop me an email at rick.merritt@ubm.com

With the availabilty of so much of the IP - A9 processors from ARM, GPU from the unnamed partner in the US, "designing" such an SoC is not such a big deal as it used to be a few years back. For these applications the power efficiency is key - fps alone does not matter - a xeon gets better fps e.g. BUT I believe this will enable Huawei to do what it has done in the other markets - lower the price of its handsets to a price-point that cannot be touched by anyone else since they now control the silicon as well and do not need to pay a TI or nVidia margins. It will take them a few generations but they will eventually get it right. Be scared, be very scared.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
