S View Cover for the Samsung Galaxy Note3

Does anyone know how does the S-View cover for the Note 3 works?  I see that there is a two pin PCB which uses an IC, but i cant find anything on that IC.  Or any ideas what could that be?

Samsung Gear watch also uses the STM32F401 MCU from STMicroelectronics. Does anybody has a video of the teardown?

The tear down effectively reveals the presence of ST's 32bit Microcontroller STM32F401. This IC has been recently announced publicly to the mass market too .  It seems here Samsung was able to be an early adopter of this new microcontroller ..

Nice design win for Invensense with its 6-axis gyroscope.

Samsung is clearly gunning to have mobile devcies that are even more of a premium than Apple, leveraging its internal supply oif displays and flash to make sure it also has the better margins.

I look forward to your smart watch teardown.

Damn! 3GB RAM

No smartphone needs 3GB RAM to support the current softwares. Do we want to run XBOX games on tiny piece of crap.

Surely great design wins for Qualcomm. Definitely they are competing with the likes of Intel and Samsung itself.

This looks to be very good design effort on part of Samsung, without noticing Apple. It may be very applicable for niche market and Samsung should give more effort of marketing it accordingly.

Great piece of hardware and Extensive Teardown of it

This is a very nice informative teardown of a two quad core professor device, Samsung had really put too many features in a small and lighter device, I was wondering that that Galaxy has 3GB or memory and the article speaks that it has 3Gbit of memory, does it has 8 different slices of 3Gbit or it is something different?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ 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.
