Much as i like the concept of a platform for wearable computing, the significant power consumption on the wireless side is still a challenge. Bio-inspired, analogue circuit designs are probably the only way for Healthcare applications. Similarly, other applications should do lot more power efficient designs that are specific to that application. A platform approach would reach its limitation soon....not difficult for the ARMs of the world to catch up...

Now that Sanjay Jha is CEO of GlobalFoundries, Ineda has an inside track there, it seems.

I know plenty of diabetics that would kill for a simple implanted blood tester.

As a happy owner of a FitBit, it seems that wearable technology is getting closer to reality - although I do wonder about implantables....

@eewiz

Also Imagintation/MIPS will probably give you great support while ARM is very busy and may even have been slow in getting in to pitch their cores to Ineda.

Certainly Sanjay Jha and Lip Bu-Tan know ARM well.

What we don't know is how much Ineda is paying to use MIPS, or is being paid to use MIPS?

If Imagination is willing to cut a great deal to get you to use MIPS and be a poster boy/girl for ultra low power maybe it is the way to go. Especially if you think the real power saving is going to come in the rest of the circuit and how you write the sofware.

ARM CPUs would have been a better choice, considering the eco system.

 

"What this product may address is the desirabiity to have the wearable satellite equipment as power-efficient as possible so that charging it can be kept to a minimum or may even allow energy harvesting from movement."

 

Even then you might need to connect the device to the cloud to accumulate the data.. ie still needs a bluetooth/wifi connection?

@Caleb: I agree. I wroyte about wearbales a deacde ago...but at some point the someday tech becomes a today tech.

I'm watching for the Galaxy Gear news tomorrow. I am told Samsung is packing GPS, cmaera and more into a watch. We shall see.

PowerVR the market leader in licensible graphics cores is probably more expensive than Mali graphics. Cortex-series, the leader in licensible CPU cores, is proably more expensive than MIPS cores.

You pays your money, weighs up the support infrastructures, the roadmaps and long-term prospects and makes your choice.

Imagination Technology is used more often it seems....what is their advantage over ARM?

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.
