William Hohl is ARM's Worldwide University Relations Manager, he talks about what ARM does for universities worldwide, for students to learn to work on ARM technologies, working on curriculum and tools suggestions and standardization.
Jem Davies is ARM Fellow, VP of technology in the Media Processing Division of ARM, he speaks at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit conference. He talks about Power, Heterogeneous computing, Moore's Law in the next decade, open standards for massive parallel GPU computing and more.
What do you think about ARM speaking at the AMD conference? First step before AMD announcing that they'll make an ARM processor? Why wouldn't AMD also make an ARM Processor? Post your opinions about this keynote in the comments. Jem Davies posted this blog post on blogs.arm.com a few days ago in preparation for his keynote at the AMD conference.

ARM President Tudor Brown video interviewed about ARM history, competitors and the Cambridge culture
Check out this awesome video interview with ARM President Tudor Brown conducted by Rob Symes of Campbell Black, hear Tudor Brown talk about how ARM was founded 20 years ago, a sometimes hilarious interview about ARM's Cambridge British/European technology company attitude:
We assumed it wouldn't work. That was the nature of our British Cambridge attitude. Here we go again, this would never work. But never mind, it's fun, let's make a go of it. And that was kind of the attitude that had been bred into us at Acorn. Many of us had been working at Acorn for many years, we created some great technology, but commercialy it had been a flop. And indeed the first products that were based on ARM, when ARM set out as a separate company, were all flops commercialy. It was a set of sales flops, I can list them:
- the Acorn computers which were really not very successful,
- the Apple Newton which was the first PDA which was the whole raison d'etre for the company that was clearly a flop,
- the 3DO multiplayer first CD based games machine in the world, based on ARM, commercial flop,
- the Sega Dreamcast, games machine, flop
- and so it went on.. we were kind of used to that.
It was a very important point that we were running the company as a bunch of pessimists, very lean and mean, on the basis that we weren't going to build the company up on the hope of some future growth, we were going to run the company on the basis that what we had today had to last.
Ian Drew is the Executive VP of Marketing at ARM, here is my recording of most of his keynote at Computex 2011 in Taipei today. Sorry about the missing first 3 minutes, sorry for the slight shaking in the first few minutes (as I was trying to get to a better chair) and sorry that I don't have direct sound recording from the microphone. I couldn't see if Computex organizers were actually recording these speeches on official video to publish on their website, if you find another better recording of this keynote please post the video link in the comments.
Tudor Brown, President of ARM, delivers a keynote speech on the status of the ARM industry and where it's headed. Here at the Computex 2011 trade show in Taipei Taiwan, look forward to a whole bunch of new ARM Powered devices. As 25 Billion ARM processors have been shipped thus far, look forward to even more uses for these ARM Processors, with the Internet of Things and infinite other uses to turn everything smart.
Linaro provides an update on the latest Linaro news at Computex 2011 in Taipei.
A Grant of Appointment has been conferred on ARM by Her Majesty the Queen, on recommendation from the Prime Minister, for an award to recognize the innovation that ARM has driven as the world's leading supplier of low-power, high performance semiconductor intellectual property (IP).
Some key facts:
- In 2010, the ARM partnership shipped over 6 billion ARM processors, bringing the total ARM processors shipped to over 25 billion.
- 5 billion cellular connections in the world, ARM present in 95% of mobile devices shipments across all standards from 2G to LTE.
- 4.5 billion devices shipped in 2010 that include ARM-based chips.
- ARM-based chips cover a broad range of application areas, from sensors to high performance networking equipment.
- Average of 2.7 ARM chips per mobile phone, with smart phones containing between 2 and 5 ARM-based chips per device.
- Approximately 250 companies have licensed ARM processor IP.
- There are over 800 Partner members of the ARM Connected Community, a diverse ecosystem comprised of silicon, software, tool, foundry and other service providers from all points in the semiconductor value chain.
- ARM employs over 1900 people with offices around the world, including design centers in France, India, Sweden, and the US.
16 March - National Electronics Week the UK’s premier electronics trade exhibition (NEW:UK) will take place 12 – 13 April at the NEC Pavilion, the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham UK and will introduce a showcase of cutting-edge technology that is both fun and educational.
“We are delighted to have ARM as an exhibitor and as our main sponsor” said Claire Saunders, NEW:UK event director. “ARM is a leading light in the electronics industry and at the heart of today’s most wanted high tech products.”
Running alongside The Gadget Show Live in 2011, National Electronics Week will highlight the connection between today’s most wanted consumer electronics and the UK’s electronics industry, innovation, R&D and the supply-chain behind the best tech on display.
ARM is challenging NEW:UK attendees to test their development and racing skills at the mbed Robot Racing challenge. Competitors will work against the clock to optimize and race mbed-powered robots.
For the brave, workstations will be available so developers can write a program for the mbed microcontroller that will enable the robot to follow a line around the centre of the track. Prizes, based on speed and skill, will be given out at the end of each day.
The first 5000 attendees who register for NEW:UK at www.reg-box.co.uk/new2011 will have a unique opportunity to attend the Gadget Show Live on the trade and press day (10:00 – 16:00 12th April 2011).
Supporting the exhibition, seminars, workshops and panel discussions will also provide rich networking opportunities www.new-expo.co.uk
