It still amazes me that today what is more powerful than the 386 motherboards I looked at when I first got into this business is routinely fitted onto a couple small dogleg boards that wrap around a display.
Allan : Could you pl. confirm the type of DRAM on board the Nexus 7. Is it really DDR3 per your comment above or are they still using LP DDR 2 like other Tablets ? Perhaps you can provide the Part No. as well, Thx.
The price of looks very attractive for a tab with a quad core processor, 1GB DDR3 and other features. This is going to be a big hit!
Did I miss the BOM cost? Is there an estimate of BOM cost available? I think the margin should be very low like the same for Amazon's Kindle Fire...and it is mostly targeted to eat Apple's share by selling more of Google's Apps.
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.
