    Motorola could license the always-on silicon to fundamentally change the way more Android devices work.

    What if -- Samsung were to License this from Motorola??? and use the CS53L30 ...
    The Motorola X8 processors will be in the Motorola Moto X model as well ast in all three new Android-powered phones announced recently for Motorola: the Droid Mini , Droid Maxx and Droid Ultra.
    •One local natural language processor (L‐NLP). Motorola proprietary low‐power specialized processor with audio sensors, noise estimators, noise cancellation, and speech recognition technology to enable always-on voice based user interaction without sacrificing battery life.
    Cirrus Logic Ultra-Low Power, 4-Channel Microphone A/D Converter Enhances Performance for Voice ApplicationsIn Volume Production Today, CS53L30 Features Four Analog or Digital Mic Inputs For High-Precision Voice Processing
    As you can imagine, a system that is always on, always listening, and always awake will drain the battery of any battery-powered device really fast. With the X8, Motorola has taken a bold new approach to kill two birds with one stone by using fewer cores and utilizing an extra pair of low-power cores for only the specialized computing tasks.
    The end result, as Motorola would have it, is a mobile computing system that is able to “deliver great experiences without killing the battery.” That’s pretty much the end-game of Motorola here: to keep its newest always-on devices, well, always on.
    There’s no reason it couldn’t be built into a different product later. In the short term, this is definitely a Motorola/Google differentiating feature, but the company could license the always-on silicon to fundamentally change the way more Android devices work.
