Apple's handset are with the same processor or power management unit,such as: ipad, iphone, and apple and maybe itouch.Also use the same ios system with iphone and ipad.
I once test the power sequence of ipad 2 use the dialog semiconductor PMU.It's very hard when first test this.The datasheet is very long.
Power management is very critical for this battery powered system.I need charge my smart phone everyday which is samsung galaxy r.
Ipad is the largest iphone without telephone capacity.
How does Intel get away with claiming technology leadership with foundry regarding mobile SOC?
Iphone 5 shipping now ~50M units this year
4G MDM9615 manufactured in **28nm**
A6 in **32nm**
Intel last week Razr announced but not shipping
3G manufactured in **foundry 45nm**
Atom in **32nm**
Intel's 22nm finFET SOC does not ship until end of 2013. Something is very wrong. I hear moving design IP and transistor variation is the problem due to finFET being on bulk and requiring fin doping
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
