Adaptmicrosys suggests to boost performance and lower power consumption

Posted by – March 21, 2014

Adaptmicrosys hardware and software technology aims at boosting up the CPU performance and reducing power usage to get performance enhancement and power efficiency with this processing solution that keeps low cost in mind.

Adaptmicrosys has been developing innovative language-adaptive technologies for emerging computing/electronics/communication systems which require extreme sensitivity in energy consumption, performance, price, resource utilization (cache memory/channel bandwidth), security, and short time-to-market.

In particular, the Adaptmicrosys technologies aim toward energy/performance/price sensitive language-adaptive computing systems for processing behavior of instructions in lieu of executing an instruction after another.

This segmented execution is achieved by post-manufacturing instruction synthesis and customization including instruction packing and inline expansion for low-power and high-performance portable systems.

Linaro Security Working Group discussing open source TEE

Posted by – March 19, 2014

Linaro Security Working Group (SWG), Jens Wiklander, Joakim Bech, Pascal Brand and Cedric Chaumont are talking about what is happening within Linaro’s working group that handles security. The group is currently focusing on creating an open source Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) solution running on TrustZone® for ARMv7 and ARMv8 architecture. They also mention that they are going to work on secure boot (UEFI) and DRM schemes (EME) later on. According to SWG there has been and is a lot of interest shown from various companies, markets and countries. People have a hard time trusting a black box that is supposed to protect their most valuable assets. Therefore it is more than welcome to create an open source TEE solution right now, says SWG.
