The article describes ARM Inc.'s Cortex-A8 processor that is touted to deliver up to 2,000 DMIPS while consuming less than 300 milliWatts in 65-nanometer implementations. Such features make the processor suitable for use in consumer and low-power mobile devices running multichannel video, audio and gaming applications. The processor features the company's Thumb-2 technology for enhanced performance, energy efficiency, and code density. The device also includes the first implementation of the company's Neon signal processing extensions to accelerate media codecs such as H.264 and MP3. The platform also includes Jaz1elle-RCTJava acceleration technology to optimize just-in-time and dynamic adaptive compilation, which can reduce memory footprint by up to three times, according to the company.
