The role of the ARM architecture in Heterogenous Computing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


With the dual-core multicore processors now mainstream, and quad-core mobile devices being announced daily, what next in the world of multicore? This talk will glance at the Cortex-A9 foundation and its ARM MPCore technology before looking into a future where heterogeneous big.LITTLE processing extends further the performance and power advantages of a multicore device. In announcing the first freely available software that enables such architectures, this talk will conclude with a vision for the future, the challenges, and a hint into some of the collaborative research ARM is currently involved
