ARM’s rise from a small Acorn to a world leader

by: Gary SimsMay 19, 2014
It is estimated that 60 percent of the world's population, or some 4.3 billion people, interact with a device using an ARM chip every day. If ARM can dominate in wearables, IoT and in the energy-efficient server room then that number is going to increase, substantially.

Firefox 16 for Android receives support for ARMv6 in nightly build

by: LucianJuly 26, 2012

I’ve talked before about how I wish we’d all move on from the ARMv6 architecture, now that we’re already getting so close to the launch of the 64 bit ARMv8 architecture within the next 2 years. The sad reality is that most devices, especially the low-end ones, are still on this decade old architecture.

Hopefully, with the launch of Cortex A7 next year, which is built on ARMv7, we’ll finally start to forget about ARMv6, at least for new devices. Google has already started doing that with Chrome, for example, which only supports the ARMv7 architecture, even if you have Android 4.0 on your phone.

Until recently, Firefox for Android only [...]

Gooseberry board takes fight to Raspberry Pi, sells out in a few hours

by: Gary SimsJuly 24, 2012

As the demand for low-cost, low-power, high performance ARM-based mini boards continues, alternatives to the ARM6 based Raspberry Pi have started to appear and they are proving just as popular.

Touting three times the CPU power of the Raspberry Pi and twice as much RAM, the board (which uses the Allwinner A10 Cortex A8 1 Ghz CPU) was available for just £40 UK pounds which is roughly $62 US dollars. It runs Android 4.0.3 out of the box, but support for Ubuntu and Arm Arch Linux is expected in the near future. It has 4GB of on-board flash and support for an additional 32GB via a micro SD memory card. On the connectivity front it has Wi-Fi: 802.11 b/g/n, a mini USB port [...]

Bell to launch LG Optimus L5 for only $199.95 unlocked

by: LucianJuly 2, 2012

Canadian carriers are not exactly known for their small prices. The prices of phones on contracts may look reasonable at first sight, but the contracts last for three years, and the carriers make sure they make a lot more money on a phone than they are investing in subsidies. This is why it’s a little surprising to see Bell selling a decent Android 4.0 smartphone for only $200 unlocked.

The LG Optimus L5 specs include a 800 Mhz Cortex A5 processor, which should be significantly faster than ARM11 (by 20% or so). The good news is that it seems we’re finally getting to the point where we can get rid of ARMv6 processors in our phones, and we’re moving [...]
