Although the term “open source” conveys sentiments such as research sharing and community building, leading semiconductor IP provider Arm, which supports 95 percent of smartphone embedded processors, is not a fan.
Chinese news outlet Caixin is reporting that UK-based chip designer ARM confirmed on Wednesday it will continue to license its chip design architecture to Chinese tech giant Huawei and the company’s chip unit HiSilicon Technologies despite a US trade ban.
The top semiconductor and hardware companies have arrived in Taipei, Taiwan for Computex 2019. The world’s biggest computer show is a preferred stage for the likes of AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and Arm to showcase their latest chip designs.
Semiconductor giant Arm today unveiled the Cortex-A76AE, a microarchitecture CPU designed for use in autonomous vehicles. The UK-based Softbank subsidiary hailed the new chip as the world’s first autonomous-class processor with integrated safety features.
