Wireless communication and smart phones provide convenience for people to stay connected anytime and anywhere. Entering the era of AI, 5G and IoT convergence, sensors and edge intelligence make connections ubiquitous, from human-to-human connections to people and things, and to objects.
5G network: connect people and the world faster and better
From 2G generation data, 3G generation data, to 4G development data, mobile network access speed has doubled, and 5G has doubled the number and speed of data transmission. However, 5G is not just an evolution of 4G networks, but an inter-generational technology. In addition to a more extreme user experience and faster connectivity, it will join the big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and so on to usher in the golden age of information and communication for 10 years.
Calculation: High performance and low power calculations are the enablers of connection technology
The Arm architecture, which dominates the smartphone market, is moving toward higher-performance notebook and server markets, while also penetrating the lower-power IoT device market. In addition, networked cars, ADAS, and autonomous driving place higher demands on high performance and low power calculations. For Arm, these emerging markets are potential opportunities and unprecedented challenges. Although the main force of the x86 architecture is blocked, and the emerging RISC-V architecture is catching up, the Arm architecture is still the computing driver of mobile internet, and is rapidly infiltrating into more fields.
AI chip: In the era of Moore’s Law slowdown, in addition to Intel, TSMC, which is itself a company that is engaged in advanced manufacturing processes, almost all semiconductor companies are discussing architectural changes. Today’s recognized architectural changes are actually AI, neural networks, deep learning, and software-defined chips with algorithmic self-evolution capabilities.
Sensing: the smart touch that connects the world
Lidar is a sensor technology that can automate driving and save lives. One of 3D technologies can identify passenger’s size and weight for more accurate and safe airbag deployment. In addition, a spectral sensor can solve the problems associated with the recycling of clothing, these accurate biosensors can lead us to a healthier lifestyle and become an aid to preventive care. With a variety of smart sensors and sensing technologies, we are able to access real-time sensor data, a capability that is changing our way of life and changing the way we operate globally, making our businesses more sustainable.
