Arm’s SystemReady program has revealed a number of the subtleties involved when trying to maintain software compatibility with operating systems without moving to the straightjacket of platforms like those used for the x86-based PC.
Arm and flexible-electronics specialist PragmatIC have demonstrated a 32bit processor implemented on a plastic substrate.
Arm is reworking the DesignStart scheme it introduced several years, moving it under the umbrella of the broader Flexible Access program.
Arm has put together a program based on its existing Flexible Access model that is intended to provide early-state startups with a broader list of cores they can prototype before needing to take out a full licence.
Mentor is active across the program at Arm TechCon with a range of conference and booth talks, demonstrations and presentations.
Arm has introduced a licensing model that makes it easier to try out cores during a design before committing to production.
Arm aims to bring protection against physical tampering and side-channel attacks into processor cores designed for IoT nodes, starting with one of its M-series designs.
Minima Processor is working on the first processor cores that will be customized to use its timing-control technology to push supply voltages into the near-threshold zone.
Arm is putting together a security framework that the company is assembling to support, at least initially, IoT devices based on the Cortex v8M architecture.
ARM has expanded its DesignStart program by providing access to the Cortex-M3 as well as the M0 with no up-front licence fee.
