Apr 16, 2014
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—April 16, 2014—Focusing on the market and technology trends driving the mobile silicon and system markets, The Linley Group today announced it will host its annual Linley Tech Mobile Conference, April 30th – May 1st at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. Linley Gwennap, principal analyst of The Linley Group, will open the conference with an overview of the mobile semiconductor market, discussing the technology trends that will determine which mobile processors will succeed in 2014 and beyond. On Day Two, a keynote by Jason Sams of Google will explain how RenderScript, the Android compute API, is changing mobile system design.
“Our mobile devices are evolving to respond to our voice, our movements, and our environment. Delivering these ‘always-on’ features while maintaining long battery life is a challenge in both smartphones and the emerging class of wearable devices,” said Linley Gwennap. “This conference will give participants a clearer view of how to implement low-power techniques and provide insight into other trends in mobile design.”
According to The Linley Group, more than a billion smartphones and tablets will ship this year, creating opportunities for many IP, chip, and system suppliers. The Linley Tech Mobile Conference is a two-day, single-track event intended to provide participants with the information they need to compete in this rapidly expanding market. The conference will feature presentations and sessions on topics such as mobile CPUs and DSPs, heterogeneous processing, vision processing, LTE Advanced, benchmarking, always-on, and wearables design.
The Linley Group offers free attendance to qualified registrants who sign up by April 24. For more information on the conference program and to register, please visit http://www.linleygroup.com/mobile-conference
