Present in the vast majority of smartphones, consumer electronics, printers, cameras, hard drives and many other applications, ARM has announced the development of its first ARMv8-R processor core for real-time embedded apps.
Belonging to the Cortex-R series of real time processors, the new ARMv8-R will complement the ARMv8-A architecture improving the existing heritage of the 32-bit ARMv7-R processor, widely present in many consumer electronics and smartphones.
A new innovation within the ARMv8-R architecture is the introduction of a ‘bare metal’ Hypervisor mode which enables programmers to combine different operating systems, applications and real-time tasks on a single processor whilst ensuring strict isolation between them.
