ARM in the newsBy Chris Williams. Published: 26th Aug 2004, 21:39:48 | Permalink | Printable
Always with bigger fish to fryARM have this week acquired Artisan Components, in their biggest acquisition to date, which caused a little investor unrest. While ARM focuses on processor core design, it hopes to use Artisan's range of chip designs which include memories and I/O interfaces.
We last looked at the range of relevant ARM processor cores some time ago, and while Intel are making progress with their XScale cores, ARM have been persevering in the mobile embedded market. ARM are also this month holding their first developers' conference.
Earlier this month, a PDA virus was found in the wild, which affects ARM powered devices running WindowsCE. While Symantec gave the virus a low threat rating, one analyst described it as "setting a very scary precedent".
