How TI IC Technology affects Cloud Computing

We have much to be excited about when we look at the future technology is preparing for us. At the same time we are organizing the concept of cloud computing, we are making things smaller, lower power, higher performance and less expensive. I have the privilege of watching how these two different vectors of IC technology are affecting multiple markets. Among these markets are existing ones and ones that do not yet exist. A few of the existing markets include entertainment, transportation, communications, security, and, yes, of course, medicine. I'll not mention the ones that do not yet exist. In this talk I will discuss some of the affects technology has had and will have on these markets.

Applications of Digital Signal Processing in Mobile Computing Devices

Smartphones and Tablets are the fastest growing segment of the mobile industry. In a few years, we expect over 1B devices sold every year. As these devices gain popularity, the consumer are finding ever increasing use of smarphones and tablets for everyday functions that include reading e-mails, taking pictures, listening to music, playing games, watching movies, browsing social networks, navigation etc. The amount computing, memory densities, display resolutions, sensor configurations, are rapidly increasing to keep up with the needs these applications are placing on the devices. The signal processing demands on the Applcations Processors used in these devices is also rapidly growing. This talk will explore the present and future of this exciting mobile computing market, the nature of the applciations, the demands of the consumer and how the Applications Processors are evolving to meet theses needs.
