In this version of Apple iPhone, Knowles succeeds in integrating two MEMS microphones out of the three present in the phone. The third microphone is from AAC Technologies which was also already present inthe previous iPhone 5.



Apple thus uses the same MEMS microphones suppliers for the iPhone 5S,but each of them modified the design and the manufacturing process of their components to improve them by making them more robust. Compared to the microphone used in the iPhone 5, Knowles major changes include the number of transducers of the MEMS die (impacting directly the die size) and the thickness of the backplate.

“DevOps is really about the business. The business is under pressure today, competitively in the marketplace to respond to the expectations of the customer. The business is driving IT and the problem is that IT isn't responding fast enough," explained Mark Levy, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Serena Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
