Challenges in Enabling the Next Generation Mobile Experience : Are You Ready?
Scott Runner, Vice President, Engineering at Qualcomm
In the next decade, consumers are going to be treated to an array of new use case experiences in mobility that one can only dream of today. The HW and SW IP and systems integration that will enable these experiences are prodigious. The design and verification challenges which must be surmounted to enable such high levels of integration and functionality are daunting. And doing so in the timeframes required to satisfy the appetites of smartphone and tablet customers, while delivering to cost, power, performance and quality targets demands novel approaches. We will explore these challenges in the design of the most popular devices in the wireless world.
