Not All Ops Are Created Equal


Efficient and compact neural network models are essential for enabling the deployment on mobile and embedded devices. In this work, we point out that typical design metrics for gauging the efficiency of neural network architectures – total number of operations and parameters – are not sufficient. These metrics may not accurately correlate with the actual deployment metrics such as energy an... » read more

The Route To A Trillion Devices


Technology vendors like to talk about data being big, really big. Petabytes of storage; gigabits of bandwidth; megaflops of processing power. But data doesn’t have to be big to be valuable. One of the most successful financial trades of all time was premised on a piece of information that could have been represented by a single bit (1 or 0). On June 19 1815, the bond market in London wa... » read more

IoT Security Manifesto


Securing tomorrow means rethinking how we design intelligent devices by embracing concepts from outside the digital realm and taking advantage of advanced new technologies. Some of the things the Arm Security Manifesto explores: A digital immune system. Technologists develop human-like immune systems and health-care services that automatically detect, quarantine and treat any cyber inf... » read more

HPC Case Study: CFD Applications On ARM


In this paper, we examine the readiness and potential of ARM-based platforms for High Performance Computing, and have benchmarked two different computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications. CFD represents one of the most widely used HPC applications in aerospace, automotive and other engineering areas such as turbine-design. For server hardware, we leverage the ThunderX platform from Cavium,... » read more

Lowering The Barriers To Entry For ASICs


The future of IoT and its rate of scalability depends upon increased functionality in the smallest form factors. Arm knows that OEMs are increasingly turning to custom SoCs/ASICs for a wealth of benefits: differentiation, cost savings, improved reliability, and smaller products. So, at Arm, we wanted to better understand the perceived risks involved for OEMs – what makes custom SoCs a task... » read more

Arm Platform Security Architecture Overview


The transition to an Internet of Things (IoT) is well underway and has the potential to transform both businesses and consumer experiences. The success of this next phase of the internet is heavily dependent upon the trust and security built into billions of different connected devices. Businesses need to depend on the data from edge computing, in order to be able to make commercial decisions, ... » read more

Intelligent Power Allocation


The modern System-on-Chip (SoC) has higher thermal dissipation than its previous generations, because of the following factors: Increasing processor frequencies. Decreasing SoC package and device sizes. Higher levels of integration. Static power consumption trends with the most advanced SoC fabrication. Faster frequencies mean faster switching, which means more power consumpt... » read more

AI Today, AI Tomorrow


Artificial intelligence (AI) is the most talked-about technology of our time. But AI’s present and future means many things to many people. We commissioned this survey, with the help of Northstar Research Partners, to gain insight into what consumers think about AI’s usefulness today and its promise for tomorrow. What we discovered was astonishing. To read more, click here. » read more

ARM Moves Further Into Automotive With NXP’s Launch of S32K Series To The General Market


NXP has now launched its new S32K range of microcontrollers for the general market. These devices are targeted at automotive body and motor control applications. NXP is thus now offering ARM-based devices to a broad range of customers in a segment that has been dominated by proprietary-architecture devices. The increasing demands on controllers in body applications mean that this is unlikely to... » read more

System Performance Analysis At ARM


Performance analysis is a vital task in modern SoC design. An under-designed SoC may run too slowly to keep up with the demands of the system. An over- designed SoC will consume too much power and require more expensive IP blocks. At ARM we want to help our partners build SoCs that deliver the best performance within their power and area budgets. The simple truth is that this is more difficu... » read more
