Starting this year, smartphone shipments will represent more than half of the handset market.  Mobile processors are the highly integrated Systems-on-a-Chip that have powered this revolution in portable computing devices. In a classic example of disruptive innovation, the rapid pace of change and cutthroat pricing have caused some semiconductor vendors to exit the market while a new generation of companies have risen to the forefront.
A multicore war is underway, with some chip companies pushing the limits from dual to quad to â??Octaâ? configurations, with up to eight CPUs on a chip.  New architectures are emerging, including ARMâ??s big.LITTLE CPU cores in true heterogeneous multiprocessing configurations.  In addition, Apple’s A7 announcement has kicked off the 64-bit debate, and Intel is continuing to pursue a foothold in this market with a new generation of x86 mobile processors.
In this presentation, Mike Demler will review the latest trends in mobile processors, and attempt to sort out some of the confusion in this highly competitive market.
