They're all good. In today's world of SoC the architecture of the CPU usually, but not always, takes second or third place when comparing features like the peripheral set, Pd and package alternatives. Afterall, all Boole, et al left us with is AND and NOT...everything else is but a variation on a theme.

From tiny acorns do giant oaks ( ARM ) grow ! Ironic that de-industrialized and uncompetitive England provided a more fertile soil for RISC designs to grow than out here in the desert in the shadow of giant Fabs that are still churning out CISC processors with a billion transistors. But for how long ?

Nice article. I was around when much of this was happening and had heard a bit about Acorn computers but was mostly unaware of how it all fit together. I especially like this statement: 'Wilson concludes: "Hermann Hauser says he gave us the things Intel could never give us, no resources, no time and no money."' How many great innovations have happened because someone had a job to do and not enough time, resources or money to do it?

I give ARM good marks for seeing a development path beyond the Intel line. Intel followed a logical path exploiting their processor line into the home PC market. ARM saw the long term potential of building a path towards customizable computer processor components to enable smaller runs of targeted processors. I am impressed with the quality and versatility of the ARM processor line. They may now face more competition from Intel as the PC market begins to phase down. The capability to make building block components has been around for a while, so it will be interesting to see if Intel can come up with a competitive alternative.

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.
