Wow, this is astounding. A 64 bit arm will certainly open a pandoras box hitherto unexplored. This is big news indeed and ARM is upping it's ante in the power play over next generation cpus. Don't see any immediate application for this in the mobile world, even for a tablet but as the CTO says it will be robust by the time the world needs it.
Windows will likely run on it, Dirk. In the press release that was issued earlier a general manager at Microsoft, KD Hallman, said:
"ARM is an important partner for Microsoft," adding, "The evolution of ARM to support a 64-bit architecture is a significant development for ARM and for the ARM ecosystem. We look forward to witnessing this technology's potential to enhance future ARM-based solutions."
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
