Reality Check: A Guide To Understanding Optimized Processor Cores

The performance of the processor core in an SoC is often a key product differentiator. It's not just about performance though - power and cost are equally important considerations. In today's markets, SoC developers have to hit aggressive power, performance and area goals to remain competitive. This white paper discusses the many interacting parameters that determine the optimum implementation ... » read more

Porting To ARM 64-Bit

Why 64-bit? It seems that is a question with many answers! For some, it will be the need to address more than 4GB of memory, for others the need for wider registers and greater accuracy of 64-bit data processing, for still others the attraction of a larger register set. Whatever your reason for looking to move to 64-bit, it is likely that you will have a body of legacy software which will ne... » read more
