What interesting to me is the retina display. Why doesn't Apple go all the way to 720 instead of 640? If so, the number of content available w/o resizing is a lot more. Well! I assume A6 is capable to render 720 content and there is little concern of storage.
@truekop- this is from
UBM TechInsights chief teardown engineer Chad Davis:
“Yes, there were two MEMS microphones at the top of the phone and a large condenser type microphone at the bottom of the phone that resembled a speaker.”
No word yet on the manufacturer, but I will try to find out.
BTW, a listing of the major components in the handset (not including MEMS microphones) was added to the end of the article:
"The iPhone 5 is touted by many as the most innovative iPhone since the original" The most innovative thing Apple could do with an iPhone is thumb a nose at Jobs' corpse and make it run Flash - and they still haven't done it
Why does it take multiple pages to read EE Times web articles? This one is 21 pages long!!! Come on EE Times, put the entire article on 1 web page and save us the unnecessary clicking. I know using the 'print' button will put everything on one page, but why do we need to do this extra step for every article?
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
