This week in the Microprocessor Report, the Linley Group announced its Analysts’ Choice Award winners and declared the ARM big.LITTLE multicore IP architecture as the best processor IP of the year: “Designed to extend battery life by up to 70%, … Continue reading
I regularly write about Deepak Sekar’s blogs and his latest entry about a talk given by NVIDIA’s Chief Scientist Bill Dally is causing me to quote from Sekar’s blog once again. Sekar is MonolithIC 3D’s Chief Scientist, so I suppose … Continue reading
The WORD on ARM’s big.LITTLE Cortex-A15/A7 design philosophy from Jack Ganssle, a leading expert and consultant on embedded design and firmware development
I’ve written up many bits of wisdom from my friend Jack Ganssle before and his latest Embedded Muse newsletter carries a lead article on the new ARM big.LITTLE design philosophy that teams a high-powered ARM Cortex-A15 processor core with a … Continue reading
Some critical considerations for SoC and Silicon Realization teams thinking about using ARM Cortex-A7 or ARM Cortex-A8 processor cores
ARM sort of dropped the introduction of the ARM Cortex-A7 processor core out of the sky a couple of weeks ago (see “ARM drops Cortex-A7 core on unsuspecting market, devastates low-power SoC and application-processor landscapes. What’s it all mean?”), so … Continue reading
How about a quick and easy guide to ARM Cortex processor cores? Got one for you from ARM TechCon 2011
I met with Nandan Nayampally, Director of CPU Product Marketing for the Processor Division at ARM, at ARM TechCon 2011 last week and asked him for a short-form way of understanding the three major classes of 32-bit ARM Cortex processor … Continue reading
Late breaking news: Freescale licenses ARM Cortex-A7 MPCore for future i.MX application processors and as a companion to previously licensed ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore.
Freescale has lost no time in announcing that it has licensed the just-announced ARM Cortex-A7 MPCore processor for its i.MX series of application processors. According to the Freescale press release: “Freescale plans to incorporate ARM Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A15 processors in … Continue reading
ARM drops Cortex-A7 core on unsuspecting market, devastates low-power SoC and application-processor landscapes. What’s it all mean?
ARM has just announced the ARM Cortex-A7 processor core for SoC designers and the low-power landscape will never be the same again. Why? Because the Cortex-A7 core implemented in a 28nm process technology is reportedly one fifth the size of … Continue reading
