At the Samsung #unpacked at #mwc so they launch Samsung Galaxy S6. How about 50hr battery life new reflective display? How about $200 MHL Lapdock? Samsung Glass? E Ink Smartwatch? Better than moto360 round Android Wear? 64bit big.LITTLE Exynos? What do you think Samsung should show?

EP2: Huawei Mate7 vs Note4 vs iPhone6+ I ask normal people which of the top-3 high-end phablets they think is the better one among Huawei Mate 7, iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the flagship phablets from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. I think the Mate7 is the best among those, although for me to recommend it to everyone, Huawei should price it at $299 instead of $499.

I did some quick research and someone from TWIT bought one of these watches at CES earlier this year. He called it an Apple watch clone at the time. So they do have working models already.

ARM Cortex-M7 in STM32 F7 STMicroelectronics, IS2T brings MicroEJ Java apps store for embedded market STMicroelectronics launches STM32 F7 series of very high performance Microcontroller Units based on the ARM Cortex-M7 core. The STM32 F7 devices are the world’s first ARM Cortex-M7 based 32-bit microcontrollers, improving on the benchmark performance. Taking advantage of ST’s ART Accelerator as well as an L1 cache, the STM32 F7 devices deliver the maximum theoretical performance of the Cortex-M7 no matter whether code is executed from embedded Flash or external Memory: 1000 CoreMark/428 DMIPS at 200 MHz fCPU.

Demonstrated running on the STM32 F7, IS2T MicroEJ SDK enables embedded Java development for any MCU and MPU, from the smallest ARM Cortex-M0+ to the newest Cortex-M7 and beyond. The embedded Java platform includes IS2T Java Virtual Machine (footprint: 28KB of RAM, 1.5KB of RAM) and IS2T libraries for IoT, GUI and communication applications. Boot time to first line of Java main is 2ms on a Cortex-M4@120MHz.

IoT solutions includes TPC/IP, Wifi, MQTT, Websockets, HTTP, JSON, XML, COAP... protocols. GUI solutions includes a full set of widgets, drawing, motions, anti-aliased... libraries - typical animations at 60FPS with less than 10% CPU load. Full Java applications run on MCU starting from 256KB of flash.

The MicroEJ demo running on STM32F7 device shows the Waddapps store connection, an online store of embedded applications that can be downloaded to the STM32F7 through any link (e.g. ethernet, Wifi, Bluetooth). Apps are downloaded, installed, started, stopped, uninstalled without reset - same as smartphone users would typically do with an Apps Store.

More information about STM32 F7: http://www.st.com/web/en/catalog/mmc/FM141/SC1169/SS1858?sc=stm32f7

At the Huawei press conference at #mwc, if Huawei wants to beat Apple, I think they can, they just have to sell something like the Huawei Mate7 at sub-$300, and the new Huawei Smartwatch should be priced below $200, if they sell as much as there would be demand, they could I think overtake Apple this year. I hope also Huawei does an MHL LapDock for a new 64bit big.LITTLE octa core phone. If they bundle a perfect 13.3" Ultrabook-style Lapdock they may sell the bundle at $400-$500.

The Kool-Aid is too strong. You have to remember that while Huawei is selling phones, Apple is selling an entrenched image and culture. It doesn't even matter that one product might be better or cheaper than another.

ARM Cortex-M processors are everywhere at Embedded World #EMB2015  In this video, +Thomas Ensergueix and +Diya Soubra, product managers at ARM for Cortex-M processors, discuss how software complexity is driving the increase in the deployment of 32bit Cortex-M processors in the embedded market.
 
The ARM Cortex-M processor family is a range of scalable and compatible, energy efficient, easy to use processors designed to help developers meet the needs of tomorrow’s smart and connected embedded applications. Those demands include delivering more features at a lower cost, increasing connectivity, better code reuse and improved energy efficiency. The Cortex-M family is optimized for cost and power sensitive MCU and mixed-signal devices for applications such as Internet of Things, connectivity, smart metering, human interface devices, automotive and industrial control systems, domestic household appliances, consumer products and medical instrumentation.

Freescale i.MX 6SoloX ARM Cortex-A9 with ARM Cortex-M4  and the Mentor Embedded Multicore Framework Freescale launches i.MX6SX for Heterogeneous Processing at Embedded World 2015, it has one ARM Cortex-A9 core running at 1Ghz and one ARM Cortex-M4 core running at 200Mhz. Enabling the Heterogeneous Processing on the new Freescale i.MX 6SoloX , +Ricardo Anguiano of Mentor Graphics shows their Mentor Embedded Multicore Framework that enables two capabilities necessary for taking advantage of mixed core architectures: 1) remote processor lifecycle management and 2) inter-processor communication. Remote processor lifecycle management is based on the open source standard remoteproc, and allows the master core to power and boot a remote core. The inter-processor communication mechanism is based on the open source standard rpmsg, and allows the establishment of a communication channel across different types of cores and operating systems.

The demo shown at the Freescale booth at Embedded World boots Mentor Embedded Linux on the A9 core. The Linux system runs a Qt based patient monitoring application. When the start button is pressed on the Qt application, remoteproc interfaces are used to power up the M4 core and launch the Nucleus RTOS firmware responsible for capturing patient data, then rpmsg interfaces are used to establish a VirtIO based communication mechanism between the applications across the mixed core and operating system architecture. Pressing the stop button on the Qt application the reverse happens, ending in a powered off M4 core.

The entire runtime software architecture is instrumented and the trace data is visualized in Sourcery Analyzer for simultaneous timeline performance analysis and debug of both operating systems and applications.

Huawei Mate7 vs Note4 vs iPhone6+ I let real people compare the top-3 brand high-end phablets in the world, among Huawei Mate7 (3rd Smartphone brand in the world), Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (1st Smartphone brand in the world) and iPhone 6 Plus (2nd Smartphone brand in the world). These are flagships of the high-end mass market phablet market worldwide of this moment, from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. This video highlights display size to body ratio, camera feature and large screen enjoyment. Come back for 2 more episodes to be posted on http://ARMdevices.net I think the Huawei Mate7 (which I have been using for the past 3 months) is the best phablet among those 3. Check back before MWC in the next 2-3 days for my review of my Huawei Mate7.

A ton of delicious healthy looking/tasting vegetarian-only food as an all-you-can-eat Buffet, I like the fake meats in nice sauce with fried rice, but there are tons of much more healthy Asian vegetarian things, and all the efforts you put into eating the healthy food, you can cancel by unlimited ice cream, cakes, chocolate covered fruits and soda if you want. The normal price per person is 770TWD, they close every day at 9PM.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
