They want a low power chip for mobiles


Samsung
and GlobalFoundries have announced a development platform that could speed up the development of a new generation of low-power chips for mobile gear.

The outfits say that the development platform will lead to faster design and production of mobile and embedded chips using the advanced 32-nanometer and 28-nanometer processes.

In the kit are tools to help designing and engineer of chips. GlobalFoundaries thinks that it could help customers push more power-efficient mobile chips to market faster, said Jason Gorss, a GlobalFoundries spokesman.

The platform uses Arm IP and low-power process technology from the Common Platform, which is an alliance between IBM, Samsung and GlobalFoundries.

Samsung Electronics said it has completed reliability testing and is ready to start volume production of low-power chips using the 32-nanometer process.
