ARM CTO: Power Surge Could Create 'Dark Silicon'
By Rick Merritt, EE Times, October 22, 2009
Without fresh innovations, designers could find themselves by 2020 in an era of "dark silicon," able to build dense devices they cannot afford to power, according to the chief technology officer of ARM Ltd. The warning came amid much discussion of the future of both FPGAs and netbooks at the annual ARM technical conference here.
Exhibits Emphasize Markets and Development Ease
By Rick Nelson, EDN, October 22, 2009
At last month’s Embedded Systems Conference in Boston, vendors highlighted an impressive range of technologies that address issues ranging from “green” applications to data and code security. Toward that end, companies presented asset-management systems, code-analysis tools, RTOSs, microcontrollers, data converters, and prototyping tools. Security products were on offer - both to prevent IP (intellectual-property) theft and to deter the insertion of malicious code.
ARM fills out CPU lineup with Cortex A5
By Jon Stokes, Ars Technica, October 22, 2009
ARM has filled out its burgeoning Cortex A family of processors with a new addition at the bottom end of the lineup, the newly announced Cortex-A5. The A5 is intended to replace the ARM9 and ARM11 parts commonly found in everything from smartphones to the Nintendo DS, and as such, it's not exactly a barn-burner in performance. But then again, it doesn't have to be, because A5's focus is on providing support for the full range of A-profile features in the smallest possible power envelope.

ARM Shows Mali Graphics Chip with 720p 3D
Elecctronista, October 21, 2009
ARM at the TechCon3 expo starting today will begin showing working examples of its Mali graphics core. The design is now known to be much faster than most existing mobile graphics and, even with the basic single-core Mali-200, can render modern-looking 3D in 720p at 30 frames per second. In many cases it can use 4X antialiasing to clean up the image without a performance hit.
