Some companies thrive on selling to just a few major customers, but large customers can be fickle and the loss of just one of them can damage a company’s future. We recently saw what the loss of a single customer can do when Altera was designed out at Huawei. There is always speculation on what would happen to Cirrus Logic if they miss an Apple cycle.  

Another great engineering Kickstarter project aimed at kids is GoldieBlox, the engineering toy kit for girls. GoldieBlox is a construction toy and book series starring Goldie, a child inventor who loves to build.

The alternative is frightening. If the status quo holds, the power required to drive a CPU will be 600 W by 2010. Certain measures can be taken to cool the processor, such as heat-pipe advances or self-contained liquid cooling techniques, but ultimately the problem has to be solved through better design, said Gelsinger.

Rambus Inc., which already has its Direct RDRAM in production for wired consumer devices, claims its packet memory chip already is running at the 1.8 V that SDRAMs are only now trying to develop. Rivals counter that RDRAM still runs very hot for handheld applications.

Two years is a long time in product cycles, which means that as this new category of microservers grows, customers will only have one company they can buy product from for the foreseeable future, Intel.  

NEW YORK – In a year when most mobile chip vendors have seen a dramatic reduction of their customer base or declining market share, Taiwan-based MediaTek is sitting pretty and talking about a ten-fold increase in its smartphone chip shipments in 2012. The Taiwanese company had only a small presence in the smartphone market during 2011. Since then, the spread of Android apps and Android phones, China Mobile’s growing TD-SCDMA footprint and the insatiable appetite for smartphones among consumers have contributed to a global smartphone surge. The phenomenal success of Samsung’s Galaxy S3 and Apple’s iPhones have also inspired feature phone developers in China to move upstream and migrate into the entry-level smartphone market. MediaTek has been riding the wave, bringing China’s feature phone vendors into the smartphone market. MediaTek's turnkey” solution, that is touted as ensuring both hardware and software work smoothly, has cleared the way for Chinese handset makers with virtually no smartphone experience to develop Android products.  It’s important to note that in early 2011 MediaTek trailed rivals like Spreadtrum of Shanghai and Taiwan’s Mstar. Both companies were undercutting MediaTek on pricing of chips that go inside China’s low-end mobile phones. This year, MediaTek has turned the tables by seizing the smartphone opportunity more aggressively than its rivals. In parallel, MediaTek also pursued a merger agreement with MStar over the summer.

Broadcom also announced initial support for the 802.11ac standard in a set-top box at CES, possibly signaling the start of broader adoption from the traditionally wired video suppliers. Plenty of others jumped on the bandwagon, including TP-Link, that claimed its .11ac router has a theoretical data rate max of 1.7 Gbits/s. The .11ac spec uses the 5-GHz band.
