We are saddened to report the passing of Dr Mike Carey, founder of Ensigma, which innovated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology and was owned by Imagination between 2000 and and late 2020. Mike was a brilliant and generous leader and a pleasure to know and work with. Mike was from Chepstow in Wales and Ensigma continued to have offices in the town throughout its history.
Development boards are cool and the BeagleBone® Black (BBB) is one of the more interesting ones around. This widely available tiny board costs around £35 and will boot Linux is only 10 seconds so anyone interested in development can get stuck in quickly. The Introduction to Mobile Graphics course has been recently revamped for 2020 for the Imagination’s University Programme and the widely available, low-cost BBB is an ideal platform for student teaching and exercises based on OpenGL® ES2.0, instead of an expensive standard PC.
Towards the end of last year, Apple released the latest version of its Apple MacBook Pro and Macbook Air laptops. This release was notable as with these brand-new laptops Apple made a significant change – the processor inside was based on its own M1 chip rather than the Intel architecture that it had been using since 2006. Since its release, the Apple M1 has been widely hailed for its performance, outstripping Intel in all the major benchmarks and all in a cool, quiet package with low power consumption.
