The idea with a structured ASIC is that it’s essentially only partially programmable, and therefore sits between an FPGA and custom-designed ASIC. From a practical perspective, that means it offers faster time to market than building a custom ASIC at a lower price and power requirement than an FPGA. To ease the transition for existing FPGA users, however, Intel has designed Diamond Mesa to be footprint compatible with its FPGAs, making it easier to integrate into existing designs. The real-world benefit is that, used in conjunction with the latest Xeon Scalable CPUs, Diamond Mesa will let telco equipment providers create products that can handle the increased performance, latency, and security demands of 5G networks. … [Read more...] about Opinion: Intel focuses on 5G infrastructure

Spatial is trying to pave a road for multiplatform AR/VR that's not really here yet, and it's fascinating to try it out. We all stood over a 3D map of Mars while we dragged a rover onto it. We scribbled notes to each other. Our positions in space could be viewed remotely, or saved like a 3D recording of our avatars, interacting. However, it's also a work in progress. It feels like a collaborative future with training wheels on. I'm curious to see it become a lot more unleashed. … [Read more...] about I got a peek at what your 5G-enabled AR office could look like
"The difficulty of developing a new vendor, even at a global level, I think should not be underestimated; and then [to] try to engage in a high-cost jurisdiction, such as Australia, poses an additional barrier but it's something that we would absolutely support," Vodafone Australia chief strategy officer and corporate affairs director Dan Lloyd said. … [Read more...] about UK mobile radiation tests top out at 1.5% of safe levels
The Huawei devices won't be available in the US, but the Mate lineup highlights how Huawei is using stock Android, its latest Kirin processors, 5G connectivity and perks that may appeal in Europe and elsewhere. CNET outlined the devices including the MatePad Pro, a 10.8-inch tablet that rhymes with Apple's iPad Pro and an update to Huawei's Mate X foldable device. … [Read more...] about Huawei’s challenge: Sell its new Mate lineup outside of China without Google services?
A few more camera detailsSamsung said it made the S20's sensors three times larger than those of the Galaxy S10 to let in more light. Photos are clear, sharp and colorful overall. Here are some test shots from the Galaxy S20 Ultra so far.108-megapixel images take up far more space, say two to eight times the storage for many shots.Photos taken at 10x and 30x zoom are better quality than 100x zoom.At 100x, the camera's space zoom gets too shaky for clear handheld shots. Use a tripod or monopod, or stabilize it against a surface.Some photos I shot close-up were actually noisier in 108 when I zoomed in (on the laptop screen and the phone screen) than they were taken with the standard photo mode.Battery life with the 120Hz screenThe Galaxy S20 devices support 120Hz refresh rates on the screen. That means its pixels refresh 120 times a second, twice that of the standard 60Hz refresh rate. The idea is to make everything from scrolling and animations to gameplay liquid smooth.
