More than any other company, Mediatek has really used CES 2014 to establish itself and its global ambitions. The company has clearly shown that there has been a paradigm shift in the way its Chinese OEM partners think and that, meanwhile, it is looking to attract business outside of the region and it's starting to do just that.

Pendulum swings back to apps processors
junko.yoshida   1/14/2014 1:38:26 AM
Talking to several executives at CES, I realized that the pendulum is once again swinging back to apps processors in the mobile world.

In 2012 and 2013, it was all about who gets to roll out LTE modems quickly -- certified and approved by operators -- to catch with Qualcomm. But apparently, that's not enough to break into the mobile market now. Everyone appears scrambling to beef up their apps processors in order to meet with the growing feature sets of smartphones.

An exciting read. I can't help but think of Texas Instruments'  (discontinued) OMAP applications processors upon reading this. The latest OMAP4's, for instance, had an interesting mixture of processing elements on the SoC (2xCortex-A9, 2xCortex-M3, 1xC6x DSP, imaging/video accelerator hardware..) but making efficient use of all these (or just being able to program a relevant subset) was far from trivial. TI had efforts to improve programmability of these "exotic" cores, such as the C6EZRun which offered a remote procedure calls-like interface between the ARM core and the DSP.

The proliferation of exotic cores aside, I'm interested in seeing how much they end up getting utilized and what companies do to make development easier/more widespread.
