@Krisi: I don't think so, if Nitero can market it cleverly, then they can match the gap between quality and time of production. I personally think Nitero chips will be a hit as people are concerned about saving their battery life on their tablets and mobile phones.
If Nitero finds mobile computing more appealing than pc computing, then it shouldn?t be playing around with that kind of chip architecture. If all goes well we can see Nitero coming out as a company with a brighter future, and then QUALCOMM would have to rethink its business policies.
thank you Rick, good point...I remember SiBeam presenting their 60 GHz at CMOSET 5 years ago which why I was suprised that another start-up comes up with similar product 5 years later...you always start hot & power hungry!...and get better with time...like in life, hot & hungry when young and maturing later ;-)
Great to see another supplier entering the WiGig market with a solution optimised for mobile applications. The guys at Blu Wireless believe that consumption of HD and, in the near future, 4K/U-HD video will drive adoption of Gigabit wireless interfaces on smartphones. WiGig's going to be the fastest and lowest power (pJ/bit) interface for video content transfer and streaming.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
