Intel and ARM are the two giants of the chip industry in the world, one of them specializes in making desktop processors, and the other focuses on the design of mobile and low-power chip architecture. Now these two companies have announced that they will cooperate with each other to develop mobile chips and share technologies.
What is the result of Intel and ARM cooperation?
The collaboration between Intel and ARM can lead to the production of low-power chips based on manufacturing technology 18A lead to In the first stage, this collaboration focuses on the design of mobile chips based on the architecture of ARM processing cores, and then it ends with products related to various other industries, such as automobiles, Internet of Things, databases, and aerospace.
According to the official statement released by both companies, ARM customers have been designing their chips around the Cortex core architecture and will now be able to use Intel’s new transistor technologies to improve energy consumption and performance. The CEO of Intel has mentioned that such an agreement will allow other companies to access the next generation of processing technology.
The recent agreement is part of the IDM 2.0 strategy, according to which Intel will invest heavily in the processor manufacturing industry around the world, with a special focus on the United States and European Union countries. This event can establish the balance in the chip supply chain in the world and solve the current problem of chip shortage due to the increase in demand by various industries.
The manufacturing process of the Intel 18A processor is actually a production technology 1.8 nm It is a transistor and the word A in its name refers to the angstrom unit. Each angstrom is equal to 1 to the power of -10 meters; As a result, 18 angstroms will be equal to 1.8 nanometers (each nanometer is 1 to the power of -9 meters). A migration to such technology could promise smaller chips in the near future with much lower power consumption than current examples, or more processing power for the same power consumption, and will increase the density of transistors per unit area.
