    The ARMv8-A architecture introduces 64-bit capability to the most widely used embedded architecture in the world today. Products built to this architecture are now mainstream and widely available. While they are capable of running legacy 32-bit software without recompilation, clearly developers will want to make maximum use of the increased and expanded capability offered by these processors.

    This presentation examines the steps necessary in porting current 32-bit ARM software to the new 64-bit execution state. I will cover C porting, assembly language porting and implementation of hand-coded SIMD routines.
