“The complexity of delivering greater performance and higher efficiency in lockstep requires HiSilicon to take the most comprehensive possible approach to SoC design,” said Daniel Diao, deputy general manager of the Turing processor business unit at HiSilicon. “Knowing that ARM validates all of its CPU, GPU and CCI interconnect IP to work better together in a cache-coherent system creates opportunities for our teams to accelerate design cycles and address the most compute-intensive applications.”
“Marvell is an industry leader in providing ARM-based SoCs with breakthrough features and functionality. The new Cortex-A73 allows us to continue to offer our customers best-in-class solutions that set a new standard for power and performance,” said Mark Montierth, vice president of custom and computing solutions, Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. “The Cortex-A73 provides a high-performance, power-efficient processor for Marvell’s MoChi™ Application Processor offering.”
“MediaTek customers are building premium experience devices with more demands on power and performance than ever before,” said Rolly Chang, corporate vice president and general manager of wireless communication business unit at MediaTek. “Partnering with ARM ensures our SoC designs deliver uncompromised premium experiences in next-generation mobile devices.”
“Next-generation premium experiences will be defined by pushing the boundaries of what's possible with mobile VR and AR,” said Jae Cheol Son, senior vice president, processor development team, Samsung Electronics. “A scalable GPU like the Mali-G71 will help Samsung design teams address increasingly complex mobile VR and AR use cases.”
Notes to Editors:
The Smartphone Challenge: 2017
The challenge for device makers is to build slimmer devices with razor-thin bezels, higher screen resolutions and longer battery life. These design choices drive constant innovation in the size, performance and efficiency of device processing technology. The challenge intensifies with the proliferation of mobile VR, AR, 4K120 video, hi-fi quality audio and multiple cameras. Advanced modem technologies provide higher-bandwidth communications but also elevate the need for efficiency as tight mobile thermal budgets must be met.
Compatibiliy with new ARM Imaging and Vision Technologies
Mali-G71 and Cortex-A73 are fully compatible with ARM’s recently acquired Assertive Camera™, Assertive Display® and Spirit™ imaging technology which further enhances the user experience for mobile VR/AR applications.
Pervasive SoC Security and Efficiency
Security is a critical ingredient in today’s smartphones as devices often hold highly sensitive and valuable data. ARM TrustZone® forms the secure foundation for billions of devices, providing a root of trust for ARM premium IP that enables banking-class security across the SoC.
Delivering system-wide efficiency and performance is a key design priority as SoC complexity increases to meet new application demands. Optimized for the latest 10nm FinFET process technology, ARM premium IP blocks are designed to deliver across the board efficiency and performance gains, with ongoing enhancements to power management and system IP.
Providing full coherency across the SoC, the recently announced CoreLink CCI-550 enables the acceleration of GPU compute and increases the efficiency of big.LITTLE technology. Energy Aware Scheduling (EAS) delivers more control and flexibility in how the OS manages power and performance across the entire system. Read this new blog on why the memory system is key to the user experience.
