CES 2016: ARM are one of the biggest tech companies in the world, chances are you’re using dozens of their products right now and you don’t even know it! They make the tiny processors, sensors and more that go into so many pieces of technology all around the world. At CES, they have been showcasing all their latest technologies, such as the Michigan Mote, the world’s smallest computer. At just 1mm3 in size, and using just 10 nanowatts of power, it’s great for batteries, radios, sensors and so much more. Unfortunately, ARM didn’t find my joke about the lack of HDMI funny, but it’s still an impressive unit.
The MbientLab MetaWear C, not the most memorable name ever, but with low-cost and endless applications, it’s a great bit of hardware. Featuring a temperature, pressure, accelerometer, gyro, magnetometer and light sensor, it’s a tracking powerhouse, and it’s no bigger than a button.
The Huawei Mate 8, a prime example of ARM hardware at work.
Another ARM Cortex chip is found in the Tom Tom GPS.
Even an automated pet food dispensor.
You wouldn’t think of shoes being ARM enabled, not that I’m trying to make a joke about it being feet enabled. With an ARM Coretex -M0 MCU, the shoes are smart enabled for fitness tracking!
The new Atheer AiR AR glasses, equipped with a number of ARM technologies for processing and sensors.
It seems there are endless products powered by arm, but what’s really special is that while they keep making powerful, cost effective and tiny systems to fit in our devices is that they’re so good at their job, their work often goes unnoticed. Great work ARM, we can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
