Hello,

 We are currently searching people with a strong background in Embedded
System / PowerPC / Linux

 We are asking your help to provide us some contacts.


 We look forward to your answer,

 Best Regards,

Where? How much background? Permanent or temporary? You need to supply much more information than this.

Where => it will depend from various factors as we don't want too much outsourcing the development ( SoC design ). How much background : at least 3 years. Permanent. It's for a very important project. Best Regards, Guillaume

1. Is the work in France? Would other locations in Europe be considered. 2. What product sector are we considering (some product sectors require quite specialised knowledge). 3. Are you looking for one, two or perhaps a team of people.

Hello,

Let me introduce myself : Guillaume FORTAINE, French engineer in
informatics.
I would want to build a start up to sell mobile phones ( OEM Level ). I
am
currently in discussions with investors.

 We are currently searching people with a strong background in
Embedded System / PowerPC / Linux

Our business model is in its early stage, but we would be interested
into a
break oppposite to the legacy one of our competitors who are nearly all
ARM based. Our choice is to use the PowerPC  architecture : all the
challenge
is here, that's why we need people with a strong background...   This
is a
very big project.

1) The HQ will be located in Germany but England is OK. 2) Mobile phones - Embedded multimedia 3) A team : we need neraly hudred engineers. We would want to sign a contract with people ready for at least a one year full-time contract. We look forward to your answer, Best Regards, Guillaume
This guy was sending out same mail but asking for ARM one week ago,
Believe this is some kind of scam.

I believe that you are dreaming, I never ask people for ARM based architecture ... Best Regards, Guillaume

A business model that justifies a switch to the PowerPC for mobile phones would be an interesting read. -- Dan Henry

1) I plan to use the bledding-edge stuff from IBM for the SoC design. With their latest processor, they are finally able to play in the embedded market thanks to a competitive power consumption. The supercalculator business and the embedded market are the same . The power consumption is the main concern in the two cases. Due to their experience with supercalculators, I bet on IBM :) I plan to use the fact that this is for IBM a "virgin territory" ( ARM controls 76 % and the rest for MIPS and all ... ) so we will have the possibility to make a great deal with this ( no prohibitive license fees for the processor and all ). Why didn't the others do this ? Others play *can't switch* to powerpc becaus of their contracts with ARM that block them during at least 5 years ( and all the other stuff : hardware engineers that are not familiar with this architecture, soft developers who did various optimisations that will take an *huge* amount of time to rewrite ... ) 2) Moreover, all the high-end mobiles from the other manufacturers are using the current technology to its limits ( copper wired). We will make a step in the future with optical interconnects ( no intermediate step with NoC ) . So the investment will let us to see quietly the future and to save much money thanks to a clean integration of the various IP ( because every IP has a bus that need to be modified during the time and all => one bus with the highest data/rate and the lowest power consumption ) Why didn't the others do this ? IBM and Intel are the only founders to control these technology that was primarily developed for high-end servers. ARM isn't involved in this business ( they will be soon forced to switch due to the 45 nm limit ). If you don't believe me : http://mph-roadmap.mit.edu/about_ctr/members.php Where is ARM ? Best Regards, Will
I meet your given qualifications of "a strong background in Embedded
System / PowerPC / Linux", not that you'd necessarily know that just
yet.  However, I'm trying to establish whether I will choose to take
your solicitation further.  To that end:

The same, how so? I'd think that the availability of space, a serving power utility, and cooling to be the concern for a 'supercalculator'. Most data processing centers should be able to easily handle the needs of a Deep Blue (or its successors) as well as the needs of an embedded system, whereas my trouser pocket is a more challenging environment. It certainly lacks the space, power utility service, and cooling for a 'supercalculator'; an embedded system, on the other hand, it can reasonably accommodate.
> Due to their experience with supercalculators, I bet on IBM :)
Are you saying that you're going to take the 'supercalculator', incorporate it as a component of the SoC to replace many of the function-specific components of a mobile phone? A software defined radio for my trouser pocket? If so, you've piqued my interest. ===snip===
