Another announcement from the Warren East’s ARM keynote this morning was the creation of a SIG within Weightless, which is an organization responsible for delivering royalty-free open standards to enable the Internet of Things (IoT). The SIG is focused on accelerating the adoption of Weightless as a wireless wide area… Read More


ARM and a LEG

ARM and a LEG
by Paul McLellan on 11-01-2012 at 5:09 pm

I went to Warren East’s keynote speech at ARM Techcon today. There had been some hints earlier in the week that some significant announcements would be made and, while they were not earth-shattering, I think that they will be significant in the long term.

One interesting thing that Warren pointed out is that the ARM partner… Read More


Power, Predictions and Pills: Jonathan Koomey, ARM TechCon

Power, Predictions and Pills: Jonathan Koomey, ARM TechCon
by Holly Stump on 10-31-2012 at 5:00 pm


ARM TechCon Software and Systems Keynote: Why Ultra-Low Power Computing Will Change Everything Simon Segars, speaking of the importance of continuing low power initiatives, introduced Dr. Jonathan Koomey, Consulting Professor at Stanford. (First impression, our kind of guy: He wears engineer shoes, not sales shoes!)

At CES 2011, Steven Sinofsky of Microsoft stepped on the stage and went off the map of proven Windows territory. Announcing the next version of Windows would support the ARM Architecture, including SoCs from Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and TI, set a new course for Microsoft.

But Windows, being the battleship-sized behemoth that it is, would… Read More

ARM 64-bit
by Paul McLellan on 10-30-2012 at 6:56 pm

AMD announced yesterday that they would be building 64-bit ARM-based chips intended for use in servers. What was unclear is what the processors would be like. Although ARM had announced that they would move into 64-bit processors they didn’t have any that they had actually announced as being available for licensing.

At … Read More


SoC emulation syncs up with SuperSpeed USB

SoC emulation syncs up with SuperSpeed USB
by Don Dingee on 10-25-2012 at 9:00 pm

They say what adds value is to take something difficult and make it look simple. USB looks so simple when it is done right, but designers know it can be one of the more tempermental features in an SoC, especially in the latest SuperSpeed incarnation.… Read More


4 Billion CEVA powered Chips shipped

4 Billion CEVA powered Chips shipped
by Eric Esteve on 10-24-2012 at 8:34 pm

Why making the difference between chips and cores, when mentioning that CEVA’s customers have shipped four billion IC to date? Because that can make a big difference! Imagine for example an IP vendor selling processor IP cores to be used in massively parallel computing application, when the chip maker create a processor NxM matrix,… Read More

Introducing the first ReRAM-Forum movie!! In part 2 of their recently published papers in the Transactions on Electron Devices of the IEEE, Professor Ielmini’s group describe the modeling of resistive switching in bipolar metal oxide ReRAM. Like part 1, the paper is collaboration with David Gilmer of Sematech who provided the… Read More


Altera’s Real Impact with ARM based SOC FPGAs

Altera’s Real Impact with ARM based SOC FPGAs
by Ed McKernan on 10-16-2012 at 8:15 pm

At the annual Linley Processor Conference this past week a number of chip vendors proposed a raft of new networking solutions directed at solving today’s bandwidth issues. Perhaps the overall highlight of the conference was the recognition by Keynote Speaker Linley Gwennap of the shift that is taking place towards ARM based solutions.… Read More
