IBM Teams With Technology Designer ARM
IBM and technology designer ARM have agreed to develop advanced semiconductor technologies aimed at enabling next-gen mobile products.
"The ARM Cortex processor family has become the leadership platform for the majority of smart phones and many other emerging mobile devices," IBM microelectronics GM Michael Cadigan said. "We plan to continue working closely with ARM and our foundry partners to speed the momentum of ARM technology by delivering highly advanced, low-power semiconductor technology for a variety of new communications and computing devices."
The ultimate aim is to accelerate the introduction of new consumer electronics products.
IBM and ARM have been collaborating since 2008.
At the recent Consumer Electronics Show, Microsoft announced that the next version of Windows would run on ARM architecture.
