  • UK-based semiconductor designer Arm unveiled high-performance CPU and GPU architectures that promise to unlock more advanced automation across industrial and automotive use cases.
  • Since Arm’s architectures are widely licensed throughout the chip industry, the new designs could accelerate development within the automotive and industrial automation sectors.
  • Prior to these new designs, Arm utilized either a “split mode” in which CPU cores would occasionally stop operating to perform safety checks, or a “lock mode” in which the cores run intentionally redundant workloads to check one another for irregularities, per TechCrunch.
