LG GW990 Brings Moblin and the Moorestown CPU

Specs wise, the new LG GW990 could very well be a tablet with its high speed processor and large touch screen. Most interesting of all is LG’s choice of operating systems. Straying from the trend of using the new Android OS for high end mobile phones, the GW990 uses the Linux based Moblin operating system instead.

Size-wise, this device is one big phone, thanks to the 4.8 inch touch screen; the overall dimensions of the phone are pushed wider than what you would normally expect. The big bonus to having a lot of space is that the phone also packs a lot of features and power. Just looking at the numbers, this is already more than just a mobile phone, but not quite a tablet. Whether the world needs another hybrid device however, remains to be seen.

Known Specs

While the biggest hardware spec here is the new processor, let put that topic aside for later. Anyway, this mobile phone is certainly large. Compared to the iPhone which fits a little over the palm of an average hand, this new LG behemoth will cover your whole hand. The device comes with a built in 16GB of flash as well as 512 MB of RAM. That’s plenty of memory, seems like the device will be able to do more than just multi tasking. With large RAM it should be able to handle some pretty impressive games and applications

The screen, as mentioned, is a whooping 4.8 inches diagonally. The resolution for the screen is set to be at 1024 x 480 making it one of the highest resolution screens available. The resolution is perfect for viewing the 720p HD videos you can record with the phone’s 5 mega pixel camera. The screen and the phone’s powerful new processor will certainly need lots of power, and the 1850 mAh battery promises to give lots of usage time.

The Moorestown and the new Intel Atom

Of course, all that hardware needs some serious processing power. This is where the new Intel Atom comes in. For those lucky enough to attend the Consumer Electronics Show held early January in Las Vegas, Intel finally showed off the latest incarnation of its Atom Chip.

Moorestown is promising to be faster and more efficient than any ARM made chip, some are even speculating that it can give a dual core ARM Cortex A9 a run for its money. Anyway, this new Intel Atom will be running at the heart of the LG GW990 at a yet to be determined speed. Those who got to try the device on the CES floor report that the new LG phone is fast and it is also able to handle multi tasking quite easily. The best part about this is that the new Atom is reported to be very power-efficient, making it consume only 10% of the power that older chips needed.

System on a Chip

While not much has been revealed about Moorestown SoC (system on a chip), the Moblin is a familiar platform. The demonstration showed the OS has been skinned with LG’s very own S-Class user interface that will make using this device a very comfortable experience for LG users.

Nettop – PC in your hand

Nettop – PC in your hand

Nettop is a new generation cheap and power saving computer. A nettop is a type of mini desktop or small form factor computer designed for performing basic computation tasks such as surfing the Internet, accessing web-based applications and rich internet applications, document processing and audio/video playback etc. The word nettop is a combination of Internet and desktop. Nettop is a subtype of desktops introduced by Intel in February 2008 to describe low-cost, lean-function, desktop computers.

Compared to ordinary desktop computers, nettops are not only smaller, lighter and cheaper, they also consume much less power. For example, CompuLab’s fit-PC2 consumes no more than 8 watts of power whereas a typical desktop would easily consume more than 100 watts of power. Consequently, nettops are often fanless with an external power supply. Some do not have an optical disk drive and use a solid state disk, making them completely silent. The trade off is that the hardware specifications and processing power are usually reduce and hence make nettops less appropriate for running complex or resource intensive applications.

Iphone 4G Rumors And Spec? Here It Goes!

Iphone 4G Rumors And Spec? Here It Goes!

The all new iPad is out in the market, now another version of iPhone?

Base on service manager for Rapid Repair, Aaron. He say that the big changes for the iPhone 4G would probably be the contrast and will be the exact opposite of the iPhone 3GS.

The iPhone 4G would be using the same hardware capabilities more or like but the design would be different and probably in the most common periphery apps. iPhone 4G most likely would be using the same processor that is in the iPad.

The CPU inside that application processor will be an ARM Cortex-A9, the graphics processor will be a PowerVR SGX, probably a 535 or 540.Instead of having the same clockspeed as iPad, they will just underlock it to about 600Mhz on the iPhone 4G.

Main reason would be saving power.Even the iPone 3Gs is running at 600Mhz but the new processor which will be using in iPhone 4G could easily be 25% more powerful even if they ran it at the same clock speed.

It was told that even it slow down to 500Mhz and it would still be a more powerful processor set, and it would use maybe half the power as the iPhone 3GS processor and still get just as much done.

Thats how this new and strong processor is design.Largely due to using a smaller manufacturing process. iPhone 4G most likely will not be having multitasking function because it wasn’t in the iPad so probably not.

In one cycle they change the design, the next cycle they beef up the hardware with kind of the same design, and then the next cycle they change the design again. Memory will be at 512MB, the cost is right and I couldn’t see Apple staying at 256MB for the cost differences.

Storage would be in the options of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.No removable battery, if the iPhone is thought of as having a 2 year life cycle.

This phone would be release close to the typical annual release. That probably would be early June to mid-July.

System-Level Programmability evolution Leap in Embedded Design

How many embedded projects have you worked on that successfully transitioned between lifecycle phases of the project without major rework of system designs, bill of materials, layouts, etc.? If you’re answer is less than 100%, as the majority of the embedded world is, then you should open your mind to a new methodology to embedded design that will save you countless hours, dollars and headaches. In this article we’ll explore the embedded design challenges you face on a day-today basis and, in a pragmatic manner, how you can overcome with true system-level programmability. First, let’s briefly look at what I mean by true system-level programmability.

True System-Level Programmability
Let’s break this apart into three sections and describe each, from right-to-left: Programmability, System-Level, and True.Programmability is not to be confused with configurability; but rather is the ability to build a function using basic building
blocks. In this context, these basic building blocks are implemented in hardware and are used together to build a function by means of configuring registers, data-paths and signal-paths. For example, figure 1 below describes the basic building blocks within Cypress’s next generation PSoC device architectures, PSoC 3 and PSoC 5, for implementing true system-level programmability. These basic building blocks, as highlighted in the figure, consist of a high performance 8-bit 8051 (PSoC 3) or 32-bit ARM Cortex M-3 (PSoC 5) processor, a programmable clocking tree, Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs), programmable analog blocks and programmable routing and interconnects (analog, digital and system buses).

PSoC 3 Architecture
The clocking system of the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures enables a programmable set of analog and digital clocks to support a variety of peripherals like ADCs, PWMs, counters, etc. With eight individually sourced 16-bit clock dividers for the digital system peripherals and four individually sourced 16-bit clock dividers for the analog system peripherals all reaching back to a set of four internal or two external clock sources; you have a powerful clocking tree.

A UDB is very powerful, flexible digital logic block. Each UDB in the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures contain an ALU-based 8-bit datapath, two fine grained PLDs, a control and status module as well as a clock and reset module. These elements can be combined to perform the function of a low-end microcontroller, they can be chained together with other UDBs to enable larger functions, or they can implement digital peripherals such as timers, counters, PWMs, UARTs, I2C, SPI, CRCs, etc. With 24 UDBs in some PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 families of devices, you can even implement a 24-core processor in addition to the 8051 or ARM Cortex-M3 processors, or the internal DMA—a very powerful architecture.

The analog capabilities of PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 combine high-precision fixed-function analog (reference voltage accurate to +/- 0.1% over industrial temperature and voltage ranges) with a set of programmable analog peripherals that can be used to implement: mixers, trans-impedance amplifiers, buffers, op-amps, and more.
The combination of flexible, high-precision analog capabilities opens up many possibilities for unique, powerful designs.
Finally, the routing and interconnect of the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architecture, as you can see above in figure 1, is made up of system buses that enable any GPIO to be digital, analog, CapSense, or LCD drive I/O—a truly powerful feature that can offer significant cost savings (4-layer to 2-layer PCBs) and easier board layout with true routing freedom.
So, what does system-level mean? We have long had component-level programmability in the form of programmable digital
logic (CPLDs, FPGAs, etc.), programmable analog (switched-capacitor and similar functions), programmable clocks, programmable processors, etc. What system-level programmability means is simply all of these programmable components in a single platform, a single device all controlled and configured via an easy to use, hierarchical schematic-based, software development environment. Figure 2 shows a system-level view of a brushless DC Motor control example application. As you can see in this figure, you don’t need to worry about the details of how these individual components are instantiated; instead you focus on what you want these peripheral functions to do. Whether it’s taking tachometer, temperature or pump pressure readings to provide a feedback loop to the motor control function, or driving the 3-phase motor using individual PWM controls, you can solve your system design challenges without worrying about the low-level details of which discrete ICs or peripheral components to use.

Pragmatic Application of System-Level Programmability to Solve Embedded Design Challenges

You face a number of embedded design challenges. First is adapting to change—changes to requirements, layouts, designs, availability of materials, etc. Next is getting to market fast—beating the competition and releasing a product at the right time to net the most impact. Another challenge is analog complexities—choosing, configuring and using the right parts for the right purposes. Finally you must protect your design IP to prohibit competitors from replicating your designs and stealing your market share. Cypress’s PSoC programmable system-on-chip and development software have been designed to meet these challenges head-on and in this section we’re going to take a pragmatic approach to how true system-level programmability and PSoC addresses these challenges.

Adapting to Change
The only constant in the life of an embedded engineer is change, and your ability to embrace change by planning for it and using tools that empower you to adapt is the only way you can truly be successful. As you saw in figure 2, a change to a PSoC engineer could mean a simple modification of a peripheral—perhaps increasing an ADC’s resolution (figure 3), or could be as complicated as adding additional functionality into a design, like a control interface via USB or an LCD Segment Display and capacitive sensing buttons (figure 4). With true system-level programmability you can embrace change and use it to develop the best products you can imagine.

Getting to Market Fast
The biggest challenge in getting to market fast is not always concepts or ideas, but in creating a product from these ideas. Quickly getting a product to market can earn you higher margins and a more focused market with less competition. PsoC engineering enables rapid-prototyping of a solution with easy in-chip tweaking and programming along with a system-level software development environment. With these two capabilities, you can easily breadboard a hardware solution to understand the true requirements and get your product into production.

Analog Complexities
The PSoC programmable system-on-chip platform and its software development environment ease the use of analog circuitry and functions through its intuitive system-level, schematic-based design methodology. As you saw in figures 2 and 3, for example, the instantiation of analog peripherals is as simple as a drag-and-drop of the component on to the design canvas in PSoC Creator followed by peripheral configuration settings specific to the function you’re implementing—for the ADC in this example: resolution, conversion rates, clock sources, etc. The instantiation of other analog peripherals like trans-impedance amplifiers, filters, analog multiplexers, comparators, DACs and other peripherals is just as simple.

Protection of Design IP

The PSoC programmable system-on-chip provides an additional layer of security by way of its system-level programmability that’s embedded in the device. If competitors examine the die, all they can see are the components that make up the PsoC device itself and not the firmware that initializes and instantiates the system you developed using PSoC Creator. The firmware stored in the PSoC devices is also protected with several degrees of protection and defined by memory block to accommodate several levels of protection across the entire device: no protection (used during development), external read protection, external read/write protection as well as full protection (no external read/write or internal write). With these protection levels,the secret sauce of your designs when implemented in the PSoC device can easily be protected from standard reverse engineering techniques.


Cypress’s PSoC programmable system-on-chip and its development software unleash true system-level programmability with its new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures to help you easily overcome your everyday embedded design challenges and allow you to focus on what really matters, your product. These new architectures extend the world’s only programmable embedded design platform, shattering design limitations. In one chip, you can take advantage of high-precision programmable analog including 12- to 20-bit delta-sigma ADCs, a digital logic library with dozens of drop-in peripherals, best-in-class power management and rich connectivity resources; all with an integrated high-performance, single-cycle 8051 or advanced ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor in the PSoC 3 or PSoC 5 architectures, respectively.
