With the up to date electronic products and advanced functionality the main part of a machine, the processor also needs upgrade, thus ARM, the chip making company steps up with the big upgrade to fill the new demands, it aimed to tackle most of the weakness in the largest used chip in various electronic products from fitness trackers to the smartphones.
The ARM chip tech is in almost every smartphone today, also it goes through the so-called internet of things and makes processors which can make every product turning in to a virtual intelligent machine. These processors needed a big upgrade which was finally unveiled by the company.
Its first wave of products based on the new M7 will arrive in the markets in coming months, with a whole new generation of faster and better-connected gadgets.
It has set to come with different class of chips based on the diversity of the devices which are now relying on the it. This will provide the devices with new user interface “embedded” processors.
The company’s 32-bit Cortex-M7 architecture is a big step up from the previous M4. It has double in the performance, with more sophisticated functionality to products, including smart appliances, in-car systems and even drones.
The major upgrade is in the case of battery consumption. The new chip being able to perform twice while consuming the same battery life will have benefits to many wearables. The Pebble smartwatch is powered by a Cortex-M3, a similar smartwatch with an M7 could run more apps, respond faster and still last for several days on a single charge.
Many smart systems come with both an embedded chip and a more familiar mobile processor, such as one based on ARM’s efficient Cortex-A7. Those devices will also enjoy the benefits of M7. Its embedded part takes over more tasks, including voice recognition and video processing.
