“ARM technology lowers the barriers to development of intelligent, connected and aware electronics. It enables innovative, powerful and efficient devices to smartly manage our natural resources.”
Two decades of ARM (MCU) leadership and innovation includes many industry-firsts: the first Flash MCU, the first ARM7-based 32-bit Flash MCU, the first 100nA MCU with RAM retention, and the first ARM9 based Flash MCU. Its continues to leverage this experience to build solutions that help you bring to market smart and innovative products. These innovations include SMART Flash-based products based on the Cortex M0+, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 and the latest generation Cortex-M7 architectures. These devices range from 8KB to 2MB of Flash and include a rich peripheral and feature mix.
ARM Specialist Processors are designed to meet the demanding needs of specific markets. SecurCore processors are utilized within the security markets for mobile SIMs and identification applications and integrate numerous technologies to detect and avoid security attacks while delivering outstanding performance.
ARM also develops processors for FPGA fabrics, enabling users to rapidly reach market while maintaining compatibility with traditional ARM devices. Additionally the fabric independent nature of these processors enables developers to choose the target device which is right for their application rather than be locked to a specific vendor.
Applications include: Smartphones, Netbooks, and e-Readers, Digital TV, Home Gateways, Servers and Networking, Automotive braking systems, Powertrain solutions, Mass storage controller, Networking & Printing, Modems and communications, Automotive body electronics and airbags
ARM is also moving into the server market, a move that represents a large change in direction and a hedging of bets on performance-per-watt over raw compute power. AMD offers 8-core versions of ARM processors for its Opteron series of processors.
