Arm announced that its ecosystem partners have shipped more than 200 billion Arm-based chips. In the past few years, the Arm architecture dominated the microcontroller and smartphone markets, and such numbers are not surprising. At present, chips based on the Arm architecture are being produced at a rate of nearly 900 pieces per second, and are used in various products all over the world. Of the 200 billion Arm-based chips shipped, half of them have been deployed in the past five years. Obviously, shipments are accelerating. Taking into account the three major technologies in the future, artificial intelligence, 5G and the Internet of Things are expanding their influence, and shipments will continue to rise.
When Arm launched the first Cortex-A series product Cortex-A8 in 2005, many people were still skeptical. With the launch of the first 64-bit Arm architecture Armv8 and big.LITTLE in 2011 to maximize performance and system energy efficiency, Arm led the smartphone revolution and defined the mobile and embedded markets as we know it today.
Arm CEO Simon Segars said that Arm’s next two high-performance processors are expected to make significant progress, that is, without increasing energy consumption, achieving a performance increase of up to 30% compared to the previous generation product. Arm also places security and the need for confidential computing on the Armv9 architecture. In addition to existing technologies such as Arm TrustZone, additional security features create a more secure technology platform that can achieve trusted professional processing anywhere. In addition, Arm will reduce the carbon footprint used by global data centers by at least 45% to meet the goal of achieving zero carbon emissions by 2030.
