Anyone know what the roadmap is for ARM Cortex? I'm more interested in what's in store for a Cortex M0/M3/M4 update in the embedded space, not smartphone/tablet CPUs. MAJ

I am meeting someone from embedded side of business tomorrow so I'll ask. But I don't think ARM has any announcements scheduled so probably won't say much.

I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts about how initially mobile developers might try to use this 64-bit capability.

Does anyone have any clues about Samsung's big.Little based Cortex A15/A7 chips which were supposed to be announced at ARM Tech Con? It's long overdue from Samsung n many of us r left wondering when the 1st big.Little SOCs from Samsung r gonna be delivered n move into the sphere of mass availability? Thx for any info!

All we seem to be getting at present r future projections of more advanced chips (read Cortex A57-A53)which r still a good year n half away but v r yet to get any practical implementations of the 1st gen Cortex A15-A7 big.Little chips which hav been long announced!

"I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts about how initially mobile developers might try to use this 64-bit capability." Smartphones already have 2G of DRAM. And there is a lot of feature growth (and bloat) with every new generation. It won't be long before that memory doubles, and then you've exceeded your 32 bit processor memory space.

At Samsung's keynote, the chip exec talked about its dual core Exynos 5, presumably with an A15 and A7 made in a 32 nm HKMG process. It uses ARM Mali T604 graphics core supporting OpenCL. The SoC is in the new Google Chromebook and Galaxy 10 Tab amd a Quanta ultra thin ODM tablet design.

See above re the Dual Exynos 5 from Samsung. Not many tech or preformance details but the chip is out.

Correction: Samsung's Exynos 5 dual uses two A15 cores. ARM says the first big/little SoCs won't be ready until early next year. Some of the sw for it is still in development though early test results are promising.

Good luck putting Exynos5 as it is at 1.5GHz in a smartphone. The battery will last 2 hours. Rick, I thought you are smarter than what you are saying here. Putting A57 in a mobile phone. Good luck. Why not put AMD Trinity into a phone, then. i think your gray hair is covering your brain from working or may be you are too old for this
