Fujitsu Semiconductor Licenses ARM Big.LITTLE And Mali-T624 Technologies To Support A Wide Range Of Consumer And Industrial Devices

Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited and ARM today announced a licensing agreement that enables Fujitsu Semiconductor to release a system on chip (SoC) solution which takes advantage of the benefits of ARM big.LITTLE™ technology and ARM Mali-T624 graphics processing. Fujitsu Semiconductor’s first SoC solution under this agreement will incorporate a dual-core Cortex-A15 processor and dual-core Cortex-A7 processor intended for a wide range of consumer and industrial devices, and for visualization systems which enable users to control data and programs via on-screen graphics. Fujitsu Semiconductor brings their extensive experience in these markets to realize the benefits offered by the big.LITTLE combination, while optimizing graphics plus graphics processing unit (GPU) Compute functionality. Utilizing a quad-core version of the Mali-T624 GPU to take over specific tasks from the CPU greatly enhances overall system performance and user experience, while improving system power.

ARM big.LITTLE technology answers one of today's biggest industry challenges: How to create a system on chip (SoC) that provides both high performance as well as improved energy efficiency. big.LITTLE processing brings scalable and efficient performance to the tightly-coupled combination of two ARM dual CPU clusters. This arrangement is transparent to computer programs, with the big.LITTLE multi-processing (MP) software automatically choosing the right processor for the right job. This is the most efficient way to build an ARM quad-core system and delivers up to 70% energy savings with peak performance. Find out more about big.LITTLE technology here.

Consumers’ expectations of visual interfaces and user experiences continue to rise. The industry’s focus is on how these expectations can be met in an exciting yet energy efficient way. Both ARM Cortex CPUs and Mali processors have been designed with this key demand in mind. The combination of ARM Cortex and Mali enables not only the underlying ARM architecture benefits to be realized but also enables tasks to be assigned across the system to be run on the optimal processor. This flexibility is created through big.LITTLE technology and Mali GPU market-leading support for GPU Compute functionality.
