This joint white paper by ARM and Qualcomm examines the forces behind the recent mobile computing revolution and what will be required for companies to succeed in future evolutions of mobile computing. This paper includes how the next generation of the ARM® architecture, ARMv8-A, will enable the next mobile revolution based around the ARM AArch64 64-bit instruction set while providing full support for today’s mobile ecosystem. This includes the recently announced Android L (developer preview) release with ARMv8-A 64-bit support. Further, this paper reviews how one ARM partner, Qualcomm, takes a comprehensive approach to mobile hardware design and develops custom, proprietary technology blocks that make up the complete SoC using a mixture of custom and ARM Cortex CPU cores in addition to other processing blocks.
