At the Nufront booth, I managed to get my hands on a tablet prototype that contains a Nufront 2816M system on chip. The 2816M includes a 1.2GHz dual core Cortex-A9 combined with a dual core Mali-400 MP GPU.
Following my interview with Tim Twerdahl of Wimm Labs in yesterday's blog, I also managed to meet with Mike Chiang and some of the team from the Foxconn Technology Group that were attending the show. Mike gave us a demo of the Droid Angel which is a wearable device that lets you access lots of the features of your smartphone without ever removing it from your pocket, backpack or purse. I think there has been and will continue to be a lot more innovation in this concept of wearable devices, all of which can take full advantage of the low power, high performance capabilities of the advanced System on Chip designs that ARM Partners are producing.
So that about wraps it up from Las Vegas CES 2012 for me. I hope you’ve enjoyed the videos and commentary that we have done this week. I’ll see you next time as we report from the Embedded World show in Nuremburg which takes place at the same time as Mobile World Congress which my colleague will be covering. We plan to bring you all of the latest ARM news from both these shows. See you then!

Andy Frame, CPU Product Manager, ARM, is based in Cambridge and is fanatical about the success of the Cortex-M3 and how it is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for 32-bit MCU’s. Since joining ARM in 1995, Andy has had a variety of roles from Software Tools Technical Training though to Business Development, joining the CPU product management team about two years ago to look after Cortex-M3.
