Arm has a great business. Not many companies have been able to succeed with the IP model. This should be a good addition.

Very interesting. Both cores identical in their architecture support but tuned to different power bands. This couldn't have been possible without some good high speed coherent paths between the cores and the memory. It will be upto the kernel layers to do efficient switching between cores in reponse to application load, hmm.. calls for some clever programming.

The A7 seems to be an interesting addition to the family. I wonder if the title of the article should have been ARM-reveals-little pinky instead of little dog. After all, it is part of the ARM and not the canine family. I look forward to seeing the A7s in silicon for the performance and power savings.

I wonder how important multiple cores per design are going to be for ARM as revenue generators. Perhaps they will try and grab more license $ with multiple different cores for each point on the power/processing curve. One would think a single core with 8/4/2 instantiations might be a better approach, but probably less license $...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
