From small microcontrollers to its multi-core 64-bit processors, ARM is responsible for the design and intellectual property in everything from white goods to server farms. The use of ARM based processors in smartphones and tablets means that both Android and iOS users rely on these chips every day. Learn more about developing on ARM!
The Nexus 9 has launched with the first 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 processor. We look at how the SoC compares to the high-end Snapdragon 805 and Exynos 5433.
The age of 64-bit mobile computing is upon us, mainly thanks to ARM. These new processors are faster and open up mobile platforms to a whole range of new possibilities, all while staying true to ARM’s low-power heritage.
With Android L moving Google’s operating system over to 64-bit, this also means big changes for the mobile market’s leading processor companies. We take a look at what Qualcomm has planned for ARM’s new architecture design.
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.
Linaro, a not-for-profit engineering organization that focuses on developing Linux and open source technologies for ARM processors, has started building 64-bit Linux kernels for Android on ARM.
The Snapdragon 801 is a new iteration of the popular Snapdragon 800 processor that has been tweaked to make it faster, while the Snapdragon 610 and 615 are Cortex A53 based 64-bit octa-core and quad-core processors respectively with integrated 5 mode global LTE capabilities.
According to new reports Qualcomm, Nvidia and Broadcom are all ready to release 64-bit quad-core processors during the first six months of 2014. The new chips could be announced shortly, maybe even as soon as January during CES 2014.
ARM has denied rumors it is working on a 128 bit processor after a website quotes an unnamed ARM official who predicted “that a 128-bit processor could hit the market in the next two years.”
Mobile boss JK Shin confirmed that some Samsung smartphones coming next year would be powered by 64-bit processors, though that shouldn’t surprise anyone.
