I thought the same thing, but perhaps if they can corner the market with a better design timing won'tt matter much.

Frequently the second to market actually wins but I doubt it will be teh case here...we will see

@KrisI: There have been many 60 GHz startups since SiBeam got it started. They had a hot, power hungry chip for wired TV displays.

The new wrinkle is shrinking this down to a 28nm chip that fits in a smartphone's power envelop which i think is a big acheivement.

Some are doing chips and some doing IP. It sounds like Nitero is positioning itself for both SoCs and SiP with other dice.

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 ;-)

@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.

28nm is very expensive...how much VC funding do they have in place?

HD/U-HD video will drive adoption

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.

true, video will drive the adoption of 60Gzh...but so late in the game?

60 GHz chip architecture

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.

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.
