Samsung professional: Smartphone for the future is getting a technical design revolution
AUSTIN, Texas — The smartphone for the future will need a “revolution” in considering technical design and “people are readyInch for that challenges arriving here years, obama of Samsung Electronics stated in the keynote in the Design Automation Conference (DAC) here today.
In line with the nick and electronic design automation (EDA) offered to, the has been doing well with smartphones to date and can roll along for the following 2 or 3 years, stated Dr. NamSung (“Stephen”) Woo, president of Samsung Electronics and gm from the System LSI business. However the smartphone for the future will probably be one which has a flexible screen that may be folded just like a handkerchief, plus better and new programs and-finish cameras that have to have a profound design overhaul.

Putting forward an image for the future smartphone, Woo recommended the larger semiconductor industry and also the electronic-design automation industry, the crowd he was addressing, and Samsung, too, have to do things a great deal in a different way compared to what they do today.
“We still need to use on the dozen chips to construct a smartphone,” stated Woo. But smartphones are now being requested to do more services, for example voice command, location-based services, Web surfing and programs like gaming, as display-screen resolution and camera sensors improve significantly. The fundamental engineering design challenge that pertains to space, battery, low-power as well as heat level is soon likely to hit a kind of crunch time.
That’s due to the arrival of “flexible display,” a flexible screen that may collapse just like a handkerchief and become unfolded again to be used, Woo stated.
Flexible screens, an innovation first proven by Samsung, is clearly a “troublesome technology,” stated Woo. It not just “needs a changeInch for any smartphone, it requires the necessity of a “system on the nick” which does not can be found today, he stated. “Still what we should have is really a system on the dozen chips, not really a system on the nick.”
It is going to require technology for 3 to 5 years from how to satisfy the challenges from the smartphone for the future. However nowadays, the isn’t yet pointed toward it. “We’re not there. We’re walking one of the ways that’s good to date,” stated Woo, but Samsung, like others, “might have to shift our direction to deal with this concern.Inch
