Understanding the ARM Processor Roadmap

Bob Boys (Product Manager, ARM)

Location: 107C

Date: Thursday, May 16

Time: 3:15pm - 4:15pm

Track: ESC Boston, Track C: IoT & Connected Devices

Vault Recording: TBD

In 2008 the ARM processor ranged from the 32 bit ARM7 to the Cortex-A9. There were only three Cortex-M processors. Today the roadmap has extended up to the huge 64 bit Cortex-A72, down to the tiny Cortex-M0 and out to include in the winter 2016, the new Trustzone for ARMv8-M.
The ARM roadmap, in order to effectively service many markets, has grown rather complicated. This presentation will explain the ARM roadmap and offer insights into its features. Questions answered include where processors should be used and sometimes where it makes more sense to use a different processor as well as different instruction and core feature sets.

This will start at ARM 7 TDMI and how and why ARM turned into the Cortex family. Each of the three components: Application (Cortex-A), Real-Time (Cortex-R) and Microcontroller (Cortex-M) will be explained in turn.

The ARM Architecture system and why it exists will also be explained. This is useful to understand instruction sets and other features. Since ARM processors are compatible both up and down the ARM Roadmap, this information is important to understand.

The presentation will close with an overview of instruction sets, addressing and various programming models such as SIMD.
This presentation is fact filled yet easy to understand.
