SANTA CLARA, Calif. — ARM expanded its reach from mobile systems down to wearables and out to datacenter servers at its annual ARM Tech Con here last week.
On the following pages we show pictures of the latest Applied Micro, Cavium, and Texas Instruments ARM-based server boards and a new Freescale reference design board for wearables. In his keynote, ARM's new chief executive, Simon Segars, suggested he would make it part of his legacy to extend ARM's presence in the Internet of Things (IoT), which includes wearables.
Among other highlights, Samsung showed a working Exynos with Wide IO memory, also just a lab prototype. Samsung and Qualcomm also showed their latest mobile chips driving PC-class systems.
Mihail Stoyanov (below) demonstrates ARM's online mbed service that lets designers access tools and community services. The service is refocusing on IoT and next year will let engineers try out boards running in ARM's lab.
