Former Apple CEO Advises to Stop Producing BlackBerry Hardware

Former Apple CEO John Sculley gives important advice to the BlackBerry. In a statement, he said that BlackBerry should change its strategy and stop producing hardware.

Sculley, who served as CEO of Apple from 1983 to 1993 said that BlackBerry should focus on developing a secure messaging applications. He also believes that by developing it, the BlackBerry can be developed and can be equated himself with the world renowned brands like BMW.

John Sculley himself known as a user of BlackBerry products. Even more recently, this time he’s using new products from BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Q10.

BlackBerry itself is still struggling in the smartphone market. Although they’ve launched a new smartphone such as a BlackBerry Z10, Q10 or Q5, a Canadian company that still has not been able to raise significantly the BlackBerry name.

Polytron Wizard II smartphone Crystal W3430

Bening sequel

In this year, seems the more prevalent use of multiple processors on a variety of devices. The goal, presents a better performance on the gadget. Polytron also updating its lineup via Crystal Wizard II (model W3430) which has brought dual core. This increase is expected to bring better ability for the device to process the data.

U3-435-PolytronJika the previous Wizard series (W2400 – PCplus 418) Polytron still using single core 1GHz CPU, the W3430 used MT6577 1GHz dual core processor from MediaTek. This is the CPU that was booming among gadget makers from China and locally. This is thanks to a hefty CPU capabilities at more affordable prices. Unfortunately, the capacity of the main memory is still 512MB. This seems intended to suppress the price of this product.

In this product, Polytron has upgraded on the screen. Now, the Super AMOLED panel used so that the screen resolution is 480 × 800 pixels looks sharp and bright.

SuVolta’s transistor technology speed-power benefits are validated in ARM processor

The ARM Cortex-M series processor was manufactured with SuVolta’s Deeply Depleted Channel (DDC) technology on a 65 nm bulk planar CMOS DDC process. With SuVolta’s transistor technology, designers are able to reduce power or improve performance, depending upon design requirements.

“ARM’s heritage is based on low power, so technologies that can further improve power consumption, such as DDC technology from SuVolta, will always be welcomed by ARM and our Partners,” said Noel Hurley, vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Processor Division, ARM. “SuVolta has shown that the DDC technology, when incorporated into an ARM processor, can provide additional power reductions or a significant performance boost. As the Internet of Things continues to expand, innovative ultra-low power technology for Sensors and other devices will be vital to ensure that ARM remains at the forefront of this opportunity.”

When compared to an identical ARM Cortex-M0 processor manufactured in the conventional 65 nm process, with a 1.2 V supply voltage, the DDC transistor-based ARM implementation operating at 0.9 V demonstrates a 50 percent lower total power consumption at matched 350 MHz operating speed. There is also a 35 percent increased operating speed (performance) at matched power. In addition there is a 55 percent increased operating speed when operated at matched supply voltage.

“We’ve now validated the benefits of the DDC technology in a complex SoC, by combining the ARM Cortex-M0 CPUs with SRAM instances and various analog components,” explained David Kidd, senior director, digital design at SuVolta. “The results speak for themselves – power-performance optimized CPU cores, with results that hold across process corners and temperature, plus, SRAMs with 150 mV lower minimum operating voltage, 50 percent less leakage power at matched SRAM read current, and more than 5x less leakage power in retention mode.”

“Reducing power consumption and enhancing performance are key to providing next-generation capabilities for a variety of advanced digital products,” said Bruce McWilliams, president and CEO at SuVolta. “By validating the speed-power advantages of the DDC technology in a SoC that includes ARM processors, we’ve reached another significant milestone in demonstrating the value of our technology in a system.”
