Semiconductor IP News and Trends Blog
IoT, Graphic Software Development, and Kegs
Here are a few quick bits from my experiences at the ARM Developer Summit (@ARMDevSummit), part of ARM TechCon. I will write about each in greater detail later on. – JB
Stacy Smith, Developer Education Tech Lead/Sr. Developer, spoke @ARMDevSummit: “Desktop #GPU is square, mobile GPU is triangular so power is compartmentalized.” Granted, she was providing a geometric analogy for conceptualized power demands. Still, it was a great visual (dare I say, “graphic”) aid in Stacy’s presentation.
Hauntheim demos feature many graphic features and clever use of buffers. And just in time for Halloween!
John Leroy, IP Attorney for Brooks-Kushman, talked about the challenges that open source presents to the semiconductor and hardware-software supply chain. The key takeaway was that open-source software is “free,” but with a few conditions that software developers really need to understand.
Sean O’Kane (from Chipestimate.TV) and I look over all of the cool Internet-of-Things (IoT) apps on the show floor, including ARM’s connected key. Watch for that video.
