ARM Readies Cortex-A72 and Mali-T880 for Mobile Devices

ARM has just announced a series of solutions for the upcoming next-generation mobile SoC. The most notable developments are Cortex-A72 processor and Mali-T880 graphics. According to the manufacturer, both components will be interconnected within SoC by means of CoreLink – CCI-500. The launch of new items is scheduled for 2016. Rockchip, MediaTek and HiSilicon are among the companies to integrate both elaborations into their products.



It should be noted that Cortex- A72 is a successor of Cortex-A57, taking analogous 64-bit operations but demonstrating three times higher performance. The new-comer will be designed under 16 nm FinFET+ technological process. Its layout corresponds to big.LITTLE framework requirements; this promotes for its combination with other ARM cores.


As far as Mali-T880 GPU is concerned, it provides for 1.8 response time increase if compared with the Mali-T760 model. Herewith, its power consumption is reduced by 40%. Moreover, this GPU might support 4K …

Philips to Release Another Brilliance Monitor – the 247E6QDSD

Philips starts retail sales of its newest addition to Brilliance series of monitors. The 24-inch new-comer, entitled 247E6QDSD, features 613x467x238 mm dimensions and a classy black design. It is based on IPS-ADS panel that comes with WLED backlight, offering Full HD resolution on 16:9 aspect ratio. This makes the display a perfect solution to work with photo/video files as well as professional applications. The model might be already found in US stores for $239.99 price tag.



Philips Brilliance 247E6QDSD is distinguished by a fast response time in G-to-G environment — 5 ms & typically – 14 ms, wide viewing angles (178 degrees in both aspects), good brightness (300 cd/m2), the maximal displayed colors (16.7 million), and an ideal dynamic contrast (50M:1). This monitor consumes 18.11 W power at average, however in sleep/standby mode this figure goes as low as 0.5 W. Furthermore, its MTBF index makes up 30 thousand hours.


The model comes equipped with three video outputs, …

Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …
