Matching cores to demands in always on mobile applications
Always on, always connected mobile devices present a processing paradigm in that single cores just won't cut it and multicore designs are often too power hungry. ARM's big.LITTLE processing allows SoC designers to combine heterogeneous cores to get the best performance and efficiency out of next-gen mobile devices.
As the role of the mobile device continues to evolve, chip designers will face increased pressure to create processors that can handle next-generation computing. Designers need to look beyond single-core solutions to deliver powerful, energy-efficient processors that allow for the "always on, always connected" experience consumers want.
