ARM moves fast to counter data deluge

Tom Cronk, deputy general manager, processor division, ARM

Cambridge superchip designer ARM has launched new mega-fast technology to help companies maintain high efficiency when they are up to their necks in the data deluge set to swamp business in the next 10-15 years.

The UK powerhouse has launched a new cache coherent network. It says the advanced system IP can deliver up to one terabit of usable system bandwidth per second.

It will enable SoC designers to provide high-performance, cache coherent interconnect for ‘many-core’ enterprise solutions built using the ARM Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processor and next-generation 64-bit processors, the Cambridge market leader said.

LSI, a leading designer of intelligent semiconductors that accelerate storage, mobile networking and client computing, and Calxeda – an innovative supplier of disruptive SoC technology for the server market – are lead licensees for the CoreLink CCN-504 launch.

ARM has also unveiled the new ARM CoreLink DMC-520 dynamic memory controller that has been designed and optimised to work with the CoreLink CCN-504. It provides a high-bandwidth interface to shared off-chip memory, such as DDR3, DDR3L and DDR4 DRAM.

Tom Cronk, deputy general manager, processor division, ARM said: “As the amount of data used increases exponentially over the next 10-15 years, the CoreLink CCN-504 and DMC-520 will play an important role by providing high-performance system IP solutions for many-core applications.

“This ensures quality of service and coherent operation across the system, and enables SoC designers to efficiently prioritise and handle wide data flows with optimum latency.”

CoreLink CCN-504 is the first in a family of products. The cache coherent network is available to lead licensees now and sampling in partner products in 2013.

Calexda said it was already building its next generation datacenter-class solutions using the new ARM CoreLink technology and believed they would “send shockwaves across the industry when they are announced.”
