Re: 1000 mm2 Atom?
TanjB   9/5/2013 12:24:23 PM
compared to the fingernail, the chip cap looks to be enclosing about 50 mm^2, not 1,000.  50 is jelly bean size for a CPU or SOC these days.

@Rick: GOOD article! On the power requirements for Avoton, how does it compare to equivalent ARM processor/s at the same clock frequency?

Regarding "dense forest of passives", this is something that can be addressed by the motherboard designers. Obviously we don't have the info on routing congestion in the vicinity of Avoton chip. Otherwise many  of the passives could have been embedded which adds some cost penalty.

I guess should be comparing package sizes, then it should be ~200 mm2 vs ~1000 mm2.

Intel and arm both are leaders in their own space. But competition comes when one try to enter in others space. I guess its good forthe whole electronics indusstry if both continue doing good business.

1000 mm2 Atom?

The footprint is way large. Remember when Atom was only 25 mm2; it's all grown up now, I guess.

OK you dozen ARM server SoC vendors, if you have other numbers in the lab, let's hear them.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
