@tomc-eetimes, this just in from Broadcom.

Richard Barrett, Product Director, Wireless Connectivity, told us the following:

Broadcom's 5G WiFi for automotive is derived from the same mobility architectures that support smartphones and tablets. They are lower power by design relative to traditional access point architectures. The SDIO3 interface is used for mobility as it is lower power than current PCIe technologies used in traditional access point.

Let us know if he answered your question.

Good question. I have contacted Broadcom to get the answer. Stay tuned.

automotive in what way?

Junko,

This part being targeted towards the automotive industry: does this suggest the power draw is somewhat lower than a standard Access Point kind of product? Do you know what digital interface the chip is supporting?

@junko, I'm not talking about all those features being in the handset.

But the vehicle can be designed with a infotainment connection interface, so that the dealer can install brand-new electronics (also sourced from the car manufacturer, which is in the profit interest of both manufacturer and dealer) into an automobile that spent 5 years in the manufacturing and design phase.  Or have it installed at the factory, although that seems to needlessly reduce the dealer's opportunity to upsell the electronics.

What's important is to decouple electronic from mechanical design.  A six-year design leadtime for infotainment systems just is untenable.  Try to persist with that, and you WILL end up with all worthwhile features in the handset.

A side benefit is that consumers can bring old cars back to the dealer for an electronics upgrade.  Yes I realize that aftermarket upgrades represent a loss of profit for the manufacturer and dealer -- but the first manufacturer to deal with that not by integrating the system so much that it can't be upgraded, but provide their own upgrade path, is going to have a huge hit with consumers.

Junko,

You comment is spot on. 

Mobile is flywheel turning the (most) technology centric industries. The Car industry is adapting to this reality. 

The Television industry (broadcasters, content, TV makers) is struggling with the 'mobile' effect. Lets see if executives in Detroit, Munich, Nagoya will do better.

ANT is really strong in medical and sports related applications. People are much more familiar with BT in their automobiles. While I'd like to see ANT move into autos, I suspect it will be BT LE that dominates.

@Janine, one more thing. As a low-power wireless expert, how do you think that this will play out? Will ANT and Bluetooth LE duke it out -- in the automotive space?

@Janine, thanks for sharing the ANT-IN-PHONES url. That's very helpful.

@Rick, yes. Clearly, Broadcom hopes to leverage its first mover advantage in the Gigabit WiFi in the automotive market.

Wow, some people could have 5 GHz WiFi in their cars before their homes, or at least at about the same time.

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.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
