    Toshiba Signs Deal to Sell Chip Unit to Bain-Led Group for $18 Billion 

    Highlights Toshiba has signed chip unit deal worth $18 billion with Bain Capital LP It was earlier in talks with Apple that later demanded new terms Bain’s consortium also includes Dell, Seagate

    Japan’s Toshiba Corp said on Thursday it had signed an $18 billion deal to sell its chip unit to a consortium led by Bain Capital LP, overcoming a key – albeit not its last – hurdle as it scrambles for funds to stave off a potential delisting.

    The sale of the unit – the world’s second biggest producer of NAND chips – was agreed last week but the signing was delayed because consortium member Apple Inc demanded new terms on chip supply in return for funding, sources familiar with the matter have said.

    Bain’s consortium also includes South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix, as well as Dell Inc, Seagate Technology Plc and Kingston Technology.

    Pressure from the Japanese government, changing alliances among suitors and a slew of revised bids has drawn out the auction over nine months – heightening the risk that the deal may not close before the end of Japan’s financial year in March as regulatory reviews usually take at least six months.

    If the deal does not close before then, Toshiba – hurt by liabilities at is now bankrupt nuclear unit Westinghouse – is likely to end a second consecutive year in negative net worth, putting pressure on the Tokyo Stock Exchange to strip it of its listing status.

    The sale also faces legal challenges from Western Digital, Toshiba’s chip venture partner and rejected suitor, which is seeking an injunction to block any deal that does not have its consent.

    Western Digital, one of world’s leading makers of hard disk drives, paid some $16 billion last year to acquire SanDisk, Toshiba’s chip joint venture partner since 2000. It sees chips as a key pillar of growth and is desperate to keep the business out of the hands of rival chipmakers.

    Apple’s 2017 Roadmap Leaked by ‘Foxconn Insiders’; Includes Siri Speaker and AR Glasses 

    Highlights iPhone 8 has been tipped to come with 3GB of RAM iPhone 7s is expected to come with aluminium body MacBook Air has been tipped to be discontinued

    It is not a new thing for an Apple product to be leaked ahead of launch but if a newly surfaced leak turns out to be legitimate, we might already have information about several upcoming products from the Cupertino-based company. Alleged Foxconn insiders have reportedly leaked information about company’s plans about augmented reality, upcoming smartphones, laptops, and a voice-activated speaker.

    In a Reddit thread, ‘foxconninsider’ has revealed that a 32GB RAM variant will be introduced to the 15-inch MacBook Pro lineup and that MacBook Air laptop will be discontinued by the company, as pointed out in a report by AppleInsider. However, the source didn’t respond to a query seeking the timeline for the addition of the new RAM variant.

    Interestingly, earlier reports have suggested that Apple will be introducing the 32GB RAM variant of the 15-inch MacBook Pro on Monday at its WWDC 2017 event. Further, the leaks have suggested that Apple will be refreshing its MacBook Air laptop at its event, contradicting the new information.

    While foxconninsider says that new designs have been tested including “more glass and dark black body,” the glowing Apple logo is also expected to be reintroduced to the lineup. A MacBook with dynamic E-Ink keyboard, rumoured since last year, is apparently in the pipeline for 2018 as well.

    Moving to the iPad, the alleged insiders have suggested that a new size variant is expected to be launched but said that they don’t have access to the tablet, as pointed out in a report by The Verge. Apple is currently expected to launch two iPad Pro tablets – one with a 10.5-inch display and the other with a 12.9-inch display.

    Apple is already expected to announce its Siri-powered speaker at WWDC 2017, and foxconninsider says that Foxconn lost out to another contract manufacturer for its production. Calling it the Apple home speaker, the tipsters added that its availability will be delayed until late-2017. The tipsters also said the speaker has a similar shape to Mac Pro, adding that it hadn’t been seen in a while. The Siri-powered speaker has been tipped to come with a modified A9 chip, as pointed out by The Verge.

    Coming to the information leaked regarding iPhone 8 aka iPhone X, the design of the smartphone has been described as “more like an iPhone 7 with glass and without the AuthenTec’s capacitive touch module.” The design on the smartphone has been described by foxconninsider as closest to a leaked image that shows a vertical dual camera setup with glass back.

    The source said that some units with glass back and fingerprint sensor beneath the glass were tested as well but the yields were not found to be “not good”. The iPhone X has been said to feature facial detection as well as a retina scanner that will be “included in the front facing camera modules,” as pointed out by The Verge. The foxconninsider says that the iPhone X will pack 3GB of RAM. The glass has been said to be included to enable wireless charging and USB Type-C has been tipped to be removed from the phone altogether. As a result, the iPhone X is also expected to be water resistant as well. On the other hand, iPhone 7s, the rumoured refresh for the iPhone 7 has been tipped to come with aluminium unibody and not feature wireless charging.

    Notably, the augmented reality glasses from the company, which have been in leaks, were also discussed in the Reddit session. As per foxconninsider, the project for augmented reality glasses has been termed Project Mirrorshades and is being designed to bring AR to a larger audience, as pointed out by The Verge.

    The Apple AR glasses, termed Apple Smart Glasses, have been tipped to come with “Kopin NED Acetate frame, Polarisized or prescription lens with Zeiss smart optics, Bone induction modules Microphones (noise cancellation), Light sensor Accelerometer for step tracking and head movement, app navigation Magnetometer for navigation, Capacitive Pavel Ceramic battery, Apple chipset, Charging circuit BL5 Induction module.”

    The cost of the materials used for these glasses have been estimated to be around $150 (roughly Rs.), and would eventually place the retail price around $600, as per the information made available by foxconninsider. However, the entire project can even be cancelled with the source claiming that there is 65 percent chance of cancellation.

    While some of the information might be proved correct or be disproved at company’s WWDC event, we might have to wait a little longer for information on other products. Till that time, we would advise you to keep grain of salt by your side.

    IBM’s New Tech Squeezes 30 Billion Transistors Into Fingernail-Sized 5nm Chip 

    Photo Credit: Connie Zhou/ IBM

    Highlights IBM has developed a new tech to make 5nm chips It will allow 30 billion transistors to be placed on a single chip It makes the use of Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography (EUV)

    IBM and its chip manufacturing partner companies Samsung and Globalfoundries still believe in Moore’s Law, and have just announced a new procedure to make silicon nanosheet transistors that will enable 5-nanometre chips. Furthermore, the technology can be deployed to affix 30 billion transistor switches into a single chip equal to a fingernail in size. The process details will be presented at the 2017 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits conference to be held in Japan, IBM says.

    The world’s first 7-nanometre chip was introduced in 2015 by IBM in a chip industry predominantly occupied by 10-nanometre and 14-nanometre chips. Along with the 7nm chips, a new approach to producing transistor chips came into existence – the extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV). Continuing the same approach, the new 5nm chip will be produced, however, forgoing the standard FinFET architecture and using stacks of silicon nanosheets instead – called nanosheet transistor architecture.

    Highlights Xiaomi has launched a new Wi-Fi router, Mi Router 3G It can support up to 128 simultaneous devices It is available in China at a price of CNY 249

    Xiaomi has launched a new wireless broadband router, Mi Router 3G in China. The Xiaomi Mi Router 3G is dual-gigabit band router along with some additional bumps in specifications as compared to its predecessor, Mi Router 3. The Wi-Fi router is available in White colour at a price of CNY 249 (roughly Rs. 2,360) only in the Chinese market.

    The Xiaomi Mi Router 3G comes with four upgrades to its predecessor – dual-band, support for USB 3.0, 128MB ROM, and 256MB of RAM. It makes the use of ‘Gigabit Ethernet’ port design to meet the 100M fibre-class broadband for up to 128 simultaneous devices. With the the help of Mi Home’s Wi-Fi app, the ‘broadband acceleration’ feature can be enable to get 5 times the data speeds. This feature is available in most areas and to some Unicom broadband subscribers in China.

    Design-wise, the Mi Router 3G has four omnidirectional multi-oscillator high gain antennae that are meant to decrease same frequency interference, and thereby strengthening the signal gain effect for better network coverage. It comes with 256MB of RAM and 128MB of ROM to process data faster than the previous offering. It is powered by a dual-core 880MHz MediaTek MT7621A processor to reduce network delays while data transmission. It also supports USB 3.0 technology for faster local area network to share local files.

    The Xiaomi Mi Router 3G also comes equipped with Internet security features to protect devices and data from cyber threats. The dimensions of the router are 195x131x177.3mm and weighs in 260.4 grams.

    Last month, the company had skipped the Mi Router 3 and launched Mi Router 3C in India at a price of Rs. 1,199. It will be made available via Amazon India and Flipkart from June 8.
