Apple Said To Be Looking To Bring Display Chip Design Mostly In-House

Apple is looking to acquire a 55 percent stake in a joint venture between Sharp and Taiwanese company Powerchip formed to develop chips for use in smartphone displays, according to a new report by Japan’s Nikkei business newspaper. The stake Apple is after is currently owned by Renesas Electronics, and the division is called Renesas SP Drivers. It consists of around 240 Japan-based… Read More

Korea Times: LG’s first in-house chips will launch at CES 2013

Korea Times LGs first inhouse chips will launch at CES 2013

Remember when LG announced it would license ARM’s processor designs so that it could be come a fabless chipmaker — so that it could exert more control over its own processors? Well, if the Korea Times is to be believed, then LG could unveil its first homemade chips at CES 2013. In an attempt to gain more “independence and dignity” for its business, CEO Koo Bon-joon has pushed for the company to own as much of its technology as it can. As such, it’s apparently ready to debut a chip for embedded devices called H13, built on TSMC’s coveted 28-nanometer process. The newspaper is also reporting that a mobile version is in the works which the company will use in its own phones and also try to sell to rivals — mirroring the business plan of that other Korean behemoth.

Apple Reportedly Looking Into Switching From Intel To In-House Chips For Macs

Apple_A6_Chip

Apple is reportedly checking out methods to change its Intel processors in Macs with new chips based on the designs it makes use of for its iOS-based gadgets. The company has previously been reported to be considering such an action, but Bloomberg reports today that Apple ’ s engineers are now a lot more positive in their underlying chip designs and the ability of those designs to power Mac desktops and notebooks.

Bloomberg has reported similar planned changes in the past, in a retrospective reflecting on the year since Steve Jobs ’ death. And around a year ago there were reports that it was looking at options to Intel as well. The hurdles involved feature ensuring that software works on Macs based on the new processors; when Apple went from PowerPC to Intel, the change left a great deal of legacy software incompatible and led to transition issues around porting software.

Apple would additionally need to be remarkably confident in their brand-new chipmaking powers in order to drop Intel, and this isn ’ t most likely something we ’ ll see occur overnight, also now that they ’ ve attained higher maturation with their mobile efforts. I ’ d expect Apple to deliver brand-new architecture alongside a substantial OS update, maybe a progression that finally holds us from the OS X generation.

Apple creates based upon ARM designs would enable the company to create equipment that theoretically runs cooler with less significant power needs, and would make it simpler to obtain OS X and iOS more detailed together (it appears to be wishing to do simply that with its current manager rearrangement) in terms of cross-compatibility of software and code. But unlike Microsoft, Apple is taking the long-view approach to that marriage of platforms. So again, it appears like we ’ ll probably not see this make its method to real shipping items for a while, but it ’ ll be a substantial shift for all included (Apple, individuals, developers and specifically Intel) if it does come to pass.

OCZ’s new Vector SSD breaks cover at IDF, packs in-house developed Indilinx controller

OCZ's new Vector SSD breaks cover, packs wholly inhouse Indilinx controller

As we were wandering the flooring today at IDF 2012, we occurred upon an OCZ rep who pulled the company’s new 2.5-inch SATA 3 SSD out of his pocket and let us get our gloves on it. Called the Vector, it will replace the well-received Vertex 4 at the top of OCZ’s lineup. Like its predecessor, the Vertex packs an Indilinx controller, however this time it’s the Barefoot 3, which was developed entirely in-house without any support from Marvell designs. You can easily expect to see 256GB and 512GB versions of the Vector hit the marketplace in Q4, with other sizes possibly appearing after. Of course, IOPS, read/write speeds and pricing remain a secret, however we can easily share the gallery of shots below.

Samsung’s iCloud rival delayed after in-house service deemed ‘unsuitable’

Korean newspaper ETNews is developing a reputation for bold claims, the latest being that Samsung’s “answer” to iCloud, S-Cloud has been significantly delayed. SDS, the conglomerate’s IT infrastructure division had originally been tasked to build the network, but its work was found to be “unsuitable.” After the setback, Samsung’s Media Solution Center had to enlist KT, operators of public cloud services in Korea and Amazon to help move things forward. An unnamed “cloud industry” source who spoke to the daily pointed out that one of the burdens of releasing so many (oh so many) devices is that the company has to work a lot harder to ensure all of them are compatible with any unified cloud service — but them’s the breaks, eh?

HP’s in-house webOS competition yields about 500 apps, says CTO

A little backstory: HP has an annual in-house event for its employees called TechCon, and this year a challenge was issued to the engineers to make the best webOS app (free phones were offered as incentive). Got that? Good. This week, HP CTO Phil McKinney had a brief chat with Pre Central over Twitter, where he revealed that the contest culminated in about 500 produced apps, and that “[they] are in the final stage of selecting ‘best app’ winners.” Does that mean we should expect a large bump to the current catalog of programs? We can’t say for sure, but we wouldn’t be surprised if many of these are already available to download. Additionally, we can’t say anything as for the overall quality of submissions. Edging closer to the 4,000-app milestone is great and all but not if it includes 250 different Angry Birds clones. Still, we’re ever-hopeful and can’t wait to see what exactly it was that came from the internal coding challenge.
