Designing connected processors for consumer IoT

        

MIPS, Ensigma and FlowCloud at the heart of wearables, eHealth, home automation and other connected devices I saw an interesting comment from Rick Merritt (EE Times) on LinkedIn the other day. He was noticing how chips designed specifically for wearables are now starting to appear – and that made me realize the reach of our […]

PowerBox is a simple home automation system that uses FlowCloud

        

These blog articles explore the potential of FlowCloud by offering several real-world examples, from home automation systems or healthcare to fully-fledged music subscription services. One of the simplest applications of FlowCloud is found within the Connected Home; essentially this is focused on adding connectivity, monitoring and control to passive devices, previously unable to be operated […]

MIPS CPUs, the perfect Linux machines

       

When it comes to operating systems, Linux® is perhaps the world’s most popular open source OS. Linux has been running on thousands of MIPS devices that have shipped in very large volume (north of several billions of units). The MIPS ISA (MIPS32, MIPS64 and microMIPS) is fully supported in Linux, with Imagination and our licensees […]

What is FlowCloud?

       

During the Imagination Summit in Santa Clara we’ve announced that we are making our innovative FlowCloud technology more easily available to developers, including the maker community, hobbyists and students, so that our ecosystem can speed application development for the Internet of Things (IoT). But what is FlowCloud and how can developers use it for IoT […]

Lantiq talks MIPS CPUs and the changing role of the broadband gateway

       

Last month Santa Clara was the scene for the US edition of the Imagination Summit, a yearly series of events where we invite members of our ecosystem to attend a series of keynotes and presentations where they can find out more about our technologies and many of the market segments we operate in. Our list […]

FlowCloud IoT and cloud technology emerges in a world of challenges

       

We’re at the beginning of a new technological revolution: an era where thousands of hitherto disparate and unrelated devices will become connected and able to share information via cloud-based services. Imagine a world where your tablet is automatically populated with the latest movies, simply because you placed a diary entry into your smartphone indicating you […]

The day I designed my own mobile SoC

         

A few weeks ago I was working on this blog article, trying to figure out how to best represent our products visually. After I completed the work and was on my lunch break, a question came to mind: if I were building my own mobile application processor, what it would look like? The answer lies […]

Building next generation apps processors for mobile computing

          

A recent study from IC Insights found that in 2013 apps processors for smartphones and tablets accounted for 31% of total microprocessor sales, up from 26% in 2012. Companies competing in the mobile arena are well positioned to become the main driving force behind the fast growth of the overall semiconductor industry. When building chipsets […]
