Linley Mobile Conference 2015
Focusing on IC and System Design
Held on April 22 - 23, 2015

» Events  |  Day One  |  Day Two  |  Proceedings


The Linley Group hosted its Annual Mobile Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Santa Clara CA.

Attendees learned about design innovation for next-generation mobile devices.

Innovation in mobile chip and system design is accelerating. Smartphones and tablets already deliver capabilities that previously required desktop PCs and bulky consumer electronics, including multicore computing, high-resolution graphics for console-quality gaming, HD video displays, and DSLR-quality cameras. Next generation devices will add more powerful 64-bit processors, 4K video recording and playback, and computer vision capabilities that can sense and recognize a user's environment in three dimensions. Wearable devices will shrink many of these functions into even smaller packages, and new functions for communications, entertainment, fitness, and health.

To deliver these new capabilities, mobile processors must integrate a plethora of IP cores, including big and little CPUs, DSPs, GPUs, video, security, and NoCs to connect them all. Mobile systems also require complex RF design, power management, and sensor hubs.

This two-day, single-track conference featured technical presentations addressing design issues for devices such as tablets, smartphones, and media players, along with emerging categories such as smartwatches and wearable devices. The Linley Group also presented an overview of the market, technologies, equipment-design, and silicon trends for designers of mobile devices.

This event is the only one of its kind focused on mobile platform design.

This conference is intended for *designers of mobile chips, mobile devices, and mobile software as well as service providers, press, and the financial community. Attendance is free to *qualified registrants.
