Among the many market segments that Samsung competes in, the company builds its own custom processors based on ARM's architectural designs. You know these as "Exynos" chips and they are often found in the international versions of Samsung's flagship smartphones. Samsung's next top-tier chipset, the Exynos 9820, will take performance to a new level and is said to be faster than ARM's recently introduced Cortex-A76. That's a pretty big deal, considering the Cortex-A76 is the latest and greatest from ARM. As we discussed in a previous article, the Cortex-A76 represents ARM's most radical overhaul... Read more...
Last week, Arm showed off the inner workings of its new Machine Learning Processor design, but that is not all that company had waiting in the wings. Arm is also detailing more cutting-edge technology in the form of its Cortex-A76 CPU, Mali-G76 GPU, and Mali-V76 VPU designs. All three chips are slated to be heavy-hitters in their respective categories, and thanks to some on-campus, in depth briefings earlier this month, we have all of the details to share... Cortex A-76 The Cortex-A76 represents Arm’s most radical overhaul over previous designs. The A76’s brand-new architecture... Read more...
After taking a measured, wait-and-see approach to machine learning, Arm is ready to jump into the fold full throttle. Today, the company is following up on its Project Trillium announcement from back in February with new details surrounding its machine learning processor, also known as the neural-network processing unit or NPU. To quickly recap, Project Trillium encompasses Arm’s push to leverage machine learning and neural network operations across their line-up of processors – whether that processing takes place on the CPU, GPU, or its new NPU. Arm’s goal is to make machine... Read more...
Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are coming in at a rapid pace, and mobile devices seem to be the new frontier. ARM's processor architecture underpins nearly every smartphone sold today and provides the brains for countless other products in widely-varied market segments. Today, the company is looking to expand its domination of the smartphone world with a new suite of products -- Project Trillium -- that will boost machine learning and neural network operations. Taken down to the basics, Project Trillium consists of three primary components. The first is the actual machine learning processor,... Read more...
There is a lot of buzz surrounding Meltdown and Spectre, two recently disclosed chip vulnerabilities that have hardware and software makers scrambling to release patches to deal with the situation. What is not fully known yet is what performance impact these patches will have. Regardless of how all it shakes out, some of Intel's data center customers that run cloud networks are looking to jump ship. The chip flaws, if you want to call them that (and many do, though Intel claims its processors are working as intended) collectively affect all modern CPUs to some extent. However, Intel's silicon seems... Read more...
Security researchers this week dropped a bombshell on pretty much everyone who owns a computer, saying there are inherent flaws in modern processors that could allow an attacker to access sensitive information, including passwords and other contents stored in what's supposed to be protected memory. At first it was reported that only Intel processors were affected, but later analysis has revealed that AMD and ARM chips are flawed as well. It's a stinky situation, right? Well, yes, it certainly is. But it doesn't have to be dire. To quickly rehash, the flaws have been dubbed Meltdown and Spectre.... Read more...
If you've been following the tech or security news for the past few days, then you no doubt know of a security vulnerability that reportedly affects all Intel processors. OS vendors have been working to mitigate the issue with kernel patches, but those software Band-Aids can come with some performance handicaps as a side effect. Today, we're learning more about what exactly is going on, and that there are not one, but actually two vulnerabilities that have been disclosed. It's bad enough that one of them targets Intel processors, but the second affects ALL modern processors as well -- including... Read more...
There is a ton of attention being paid to artificial intelligence and machine learning in the tech industry at the moment, encompassing a variety of fields, everything from digital assistants in smartphones and other gadgets, to self-driving vehicles, and more. It is no surprise, then, that chipmaker ARM has gone and created a new machine learning group to accelerate its efforts in AI as it continues to develop increasingly sophisticated processors.ARM confirmed the new division to EE Times, though it appears a bit gun shy to get into specifics, such as how many people will comprise the dedicated...

A myriad of devices are powered by processors or SoCs featuring ARM technology. From your smartphone or smartwatch, to your router or media streamer -- and a multitude of devices in between -- odds are that an ARM-based processor has some sort of impact on your daily life. While out covering ARM TechCon, which is currently underway in Santa Clara, we got a glimpse of a device being built by Heartfelt Technologies leveraging ARM processors by way of the popular Raspberry Pi, that could actually end up saving your life.The device is wall-mounted camera system for in-home patient monitoring, which...

There's no question that our connected devices are increasingly coming under attack, as we witnessed with the Mirai botnet that made the rounds late last year. In an effort to shore up the defenses of these IoT devices, ARM is pushing forwards with what it calls its Platform Security Architecture (PSA). With PSA, ARM is providing what it calls the first common framework for building connected devices that are more secure. ARM views PSA as "a fundamental shift in the economics of IoT security" by providing clear guidelines to help make securing our devices more efficient and cost effective from... Read more...
ARM has developed a new generation of mobile chips that will empower smartphones and tablets of tomorrow with machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities, along with claimed significant increases in power efficiency and performance. The company's new Cortex-A75 CPU core for premium, high performance device requirements and Cortex-A55 processors for mobile power-efficient workload processing will also both be the first to feature ARM's DynamIQ technology, which gives design partners like Qualcomm more flexibility in how they pair CPU clusters. Prior to ARM's DynamIQ design, Qualcomm... Read more...
ARM has become a name that is synonymous with highly efficient (and powerful) chip designs; designs that power a wide variety of devices that we come in contact with on a daily basis. Chances are that there is an ARM chip in your smartphone, tablet, wireless router, media streamer, or even in your state-of-the art “connected” car. But as we enter into an age where artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming a bigger part of our lives, we need even more powerful processors to leverage these capabilities. As a result, ARM is looking to advance its big.LITTLE architecture with a forward-looking design... Read more...
The IoT movement is well under way, for better or worse. On the plus side, we now have access to a wide range of internet-connected devices ranging from smartwatches to webcams to thermostats to even refrigerators. On the downside, these devices can be compromised, leading to massively powerful botnets that have the ability to take cripple websites with DDoS attacks. ARM is well aware of these dangers as we wade deeper into IoT waters, so it has announced new family of Cortex-M processors that will help secure future connected devices. ARM is making a big push to offer more security-related features... Read more...
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Intel was an ARM license holder back in the early days of the personal digital assistant (PDA), and found its StrongARM and XScale chips in devices like the HP Compaq iPaq 5450 and other products of that ilk. But Intel jettisoned its ARM division in 2006 to focus on x86 processors, only to see a huge surge in ARM processor deployments with the rise of smartphones a few short years later. Intel tried to counter with its own low-powered, x86-based smartphones SoCs, but its efforts proved futile. Now, Intel is deciding to wade back in to the ARM waters as an ARM licensee....
