Was intesting to look at technology convergence from another angle. It is so easy to look at it from the point of a consumer. But think about the component manufacturers. They have to be at least one step ahead. CIE Components have an interenting interview with four industry experts in the multimedia sector to get an update of the latest technology trends and developments.
Multimedia applications (speech, video, audio, games, etc) are one of the key drivers for the microelectronics industry. There are R&D activities world-wide that aim at designing new multimedia ICs and systems that support this market.
An interesting part of the interview stated …
“We believe that the linking of broadband and cellular in a converged device will create a significant market opportunity, though whether a majority of devices will have this capability in the medium term remains open to debate.”
