CCN and CoreLink DMC-504-520: ARM It All for the server market low power
It is no mystery that arm (which affectionately call the “little blue”) dominates the market of smartphones and tablets, with a share of 95% , and pointing their guns at the markets dominated by Intel as; PCs desktops and laptops (notebooks) and the lucrative server segment .
Their architectures Cortex-A9, Cortex-A15 and atlas (big ARMv8) are already used in some servers in the industry, and it is expected that the ARM share in this segment to grow significantly in the coming years, and to help it announces ARM your new ip (intellectual property) CoreLink CCN-504 (Cache Coherent Network), a system capable of providing a bandwidth 1TB/s, and allows designers ARM SoCs business building Cortex-based SoCs A15 and Atlas with up to 16 cores.
CCN-504 CoreLink allows any core SoC, access the cache (L3 up to 16MB) of the other cores in a consistent and efficient (low latency and low power), achieving high performance in intensive workloads, thanks to its based coherence control hardware.
ARM Announces CoreLink also-520 DMC (Dynamic Memory Controller), memory controller designed for high performance work with CoreLink CCN-504, and for sharing dynamic memory (DRAM DDR3/DDR3L/DDR4) between multiple ARM SoC, prioritizing data with optimal latencies.
ARM says that companies like Calxeda LSI and new technologies have licensed their hardware consistency, so expect new products from these companies with technologies such as the recently announced SoC Calxeda Lakes .
