Taking Advantage of ARM's Architecture in Enterprise Embedded Applications

The new ARM® Cortex®-R52, the company’s first ARMv8-R, has created a whole new performance benchmark in the industry with support for strong features such as virtualization, memory protection, responsiveness, scalability, extensibility and context-switching. This is used across demanding environments, including self-driving vehicles, IoT and safety-critical applications.

 

The processor has been designed to meet the toughest standards in the industry, including ISO 26262 (up to “ASIL D”) and IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3). Some of the other, major advantages are:

  • Enhanced real-time 32-bit processor solutions
  • RTOS-based control systems
  • Improved memory protection schema
  • Savings in costs, physical space and space on the circuit board

 Cortex R52

How Cortex R52 works in enterprise applications

Cortex R52 processors have been successfully adopted in enterprise applications where high performance, power consumption and functional safety is required to create a highly integrated system on chips (SoCs). The processor handles increased software complexity very smoothly while performing very fast context switching as per the demand of real-time systems.

 

Key benefits of ARM architecture:

Cortex®-R52 is designed with safety features and quality performance. It brings a new level of next generation system development with the support of integrated functional safety features. While simplifying complex software integration through critically mixed code, it will not impact on real-time performance. It can be used in various performance demanding applications and in a wide range of industries like aviation, automatic, industrial, healthcare, and many more. Let’s take a look into key benefits:

 

1. RISC architecture guarantee

  • RISC comes under small, simplified and reduced sets of instruction, whereas CISC comes under more than 300 instructions.
  • RISC chips are available with fewer transistors to produce ARM processors for greater speed and reduced complexity.
  • Length of the RISC codes is fixed, hence instruction decoder is much simpler on the RISC architecture processor.
  • Instruction pipelining can be implemented easily.
  • RISC performs shorter execution time.

 

2. Power performance ratio

ARM processor is popular for its low power applications. It performs really well in high speed data processing such as mechanical devices, and enterprise user interface. The hog of the CPU will drain the battery fast ,while Cortex R52 is built in such a way that peripherals are disabled when it is not being used, which helps extend battery life and high performance simultaneously.

 

At the highest level, RISC instruction sets are smaller, micro codes are even close, more atomic. This means the instruction decoder is much simpler on RISC architecture processor leading to less power consumption, and greater efficiency.

 

3. Security and virtualization

What is needed to keep pace with security and virtualization technologies? ARM processors came up with a large number of benefits in security and virtualization. Safety critical software needs to be validated and certified in advanced critical applications. ARM processors validate, verify, certify/critical safety code and non-safety code at their required stages and so saving time and effort.

 

Drive technological advancements with ARM approved design partners

ARM has announced ARM approved design partner program to get help with ARM-based project. eInfochips is announced ARM approved design service partner program, and was involved in helping companies with SoC Design services around Cortex – M0 processors. The processor delivers advantage of lower geometry, low power consumption, and high performance rate.

Pokémon GO Season in Full Swing: Does your Smartphone Performance Measure up?

This year, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg said at the annual Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, "We’re making a long term bet that immersive, virtual and augmented reality will become part of people’s daily lives."

 

Without a doubt, Augmented reality (AR) represents the latest stage of evolution in the gaming industry as evident in the phenomenal global success of Pokémon GO, the super gaming app which is having hordes of excited teenagers and even older adults driving great distances (or walking, cycling, sailing etc.) to capture their favorite characters like Pikachu or the much rarer ones. Nothing like this has been witnessed on such a scale before.

Pokémon GO – a Sign of the Augmented Reality (AR) Age

 

The current global favorite game has shattered droves of records, like:

  • Recording more usage than Twitter or Facebook.
  • Reaching the same level of popularity as other sensational blockbusters including FarmVille, Candy Crush Saga and Angry Birds all combined together, but in a matter of days, not over months and years.
  • Scaling off-the-chart mobile app revenues for Niantic Corporation on both iOS and Android.

 

More exciting times lie ahead for strong believers in augmented reality gaming apps which have taken the gaming industry by storm. This system of immersive gaming tries to capture an alternative view of real world environments through sound, video and GPS data. In Pokémon GO, for instance, you are encouraged to go out in the real world and capture your favorite characters using your device touchscreen

 

Pokémon GO runs on a multiplayer app using Geo-location technology placed over imaginary maps in the real world. While playing, the gamers have to turn their location services on Google maps to render a 3D environment and work with activated phone cameras to see Pokémon superimposed into the real world objects. This creates gamification based on how much you are willing to move around, because that way the more creatures are found, a brilliant incentive to exercise for couch potatoes struggling with obesity.

 

Want to reach Level 40 in Pokémon GO – Win the Performance Battle first

 

pokemon go game gpu trackerIn order to reach the maximum possible level 40 in the game, as a gamer, device performance becomes the most important variable in your control. Here, we will discuss briefly a few things that you need to stay focused on to tilt the results in your favor.

 

 

Faster GPU

 

If the gamer wants to capture their favorite characters on the way to their school, college or office (we highly don’t recommend this practice but tell that to the hardcore addicts!), time is of absolute essence. So, for instance, if there is a rare Pokémon find at a traffic signal, you can’t really afford to wait for it to develop fully during the odd fifteen second window of time. In such anxious moments, it would be helpful to have a device which has the fastest possible GPU to render your graphics correctly and catch the character in the fraction of a second.

 

It’s about the memory, finally!

 

Device memory is crucial to getting the maximum out of your Pokémon GO experience. Consider a hardcore gamer who also likes to enjoy bicycle rides, now he/she wouldn’t really like the difficult choice of having to dismount from the speeding bike to capture the elusive Pokémon that pops up in unexpected surroundings. It would make far more sense to have the smartphone permanently mounted on the bike handle bar, swinging into action immediately when an exciting character appears on the horizon.

 

With memory intensive focus and right performance characteristics of your smartphone device, it is possible to capture your Pokémon anyway, and anywhere without having to stop. If you’re interested, further, Android has listed a line-up of high memory devices which can help your cheerily render your favorite Pokémon on the fly. Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 820-based devices like e.g. the Galaxy S7, take the pride of place in this final tally.

 

Immersive Video Graphics

 

Again, consider the example of the cyclist gamer above. While rendering the 3D environment faster and having abundant memory are critical to get the maximum out of your Pokémon GO experience, we’d say that really helps you get the 99% of it. If you want to make the last mile Olympian finish in your pursuit of Pokémon GO hall of fame celebrity status, high quality video graphics is what can help you clinch the deal. We’re talking of minor factors like the ball’s “trajectory”. But, in order to make that stellar finish you’re hoping for in your pursuit to Level 40, every tiny detail rendered beautifully definitely punches above its weight. Advanced microprocessors can help you generate photorealistic video graphics for high quality immersive video experiences.

Due to multiple application running at the same time like Google maps, camera, Pokémon app, it requires mobile power saving, efficient RAM and 3D visual graphics for smooth processing devices to achieve target of catching Pikachu.

 

To address this, eInfochips has launched an efficient processor: Eragon 820 Snapdragon processor Adreno™ 350 GPU (upto 624 MHz), featuring 4GB of RAM, CSI -4 lane Camera Connector (supports maximum up to 32MP) display designed to build next generation devices which are highly compatible to play augmented reality games i.e. Pokémon Go.

 

Advanced processors like these have been designed to meet AR-VR applications platforms like

  • Video processing capability
  • Thermal & power constraints
  • Dual Image Signal Processor
  • Appropriate firmware & frameworks to utilize the processor’s maximum capability

 

It has accelerated 4K and HD video capability to support more than 32MP camera. It can further deliver immersive visual graphics and efficient processing for superior experience while catching a Pokémon.
