Rumor has it China's Baidu is planning a 32-bit ARM server. Anyone know anything about it?

Silicon photonics could reshape the rack server, the components in it and even the data center. See http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4405142/Slideshow--Facebook-shows-Intel-100GE--ARM-servers

Good questions. The timing is clear. Applied expects to sample widely late this year and everybody (6+ companies) will have something shipping or sampling in 2014. Impact is less clear. This is a relatively small volume market where Intel has had $100+ ASPs that will likely now be closer to $20. Can you hear the gears grinding?

ARM is not doing much by themselves, other than proving some "good enough" stock chips. It's all the other companies who are using ARM that you should be looking at, and some of them even have their own custom ARM cores. Also HP is already using ARM servers, and they will probably expand on it.

Applied Micro will probably have the first ones out, either by the end of this year, or early next year. http://www.apm.com/products/x-gene

ARM would appear to have a limited appeal for servers in the data center but for the fact it is an energy-sipping technology. Once 64-bit ARM chips are available, we'll see. Charlie Babcock, editor at large, InformationWeek

I think many underestimate the impact that silicon photonics could have. Silicon photonics will eventually allow for optical chip-to-chip data transfers that will drastically reduce energy consumption.

The big news I didn't know about until today was Intel has 100G silicon photonics in engineering samples for inside and outside the rack. A new, hot PHY is coming. Stay tuned for details

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.
