Chip technology firm Arm Ltd plans to slash development time for IOT connected devices

The chip technology firm on Monday released tools that it hopes will let makers of IOT devices, from connected traffic control lights to smart home appliances, develop their chips and code at the same time, shaving two years off the typical five-year timeline to create a device

British chip technology firm Arm Ltd in the midst of a $54 billion takeover by Nvidia Corp, announced on Monday about the tools aimed at cutting the development time of so-called “internet of things” (IOT) connected devices by some 40 per cent.

For decades, the process of developing most computing devices saw chips and hardware first completed, then prototypes passed on to software developers to write code for the chips.

The chip technology firm on Monday released tools that it hopes will let makers of IOT devices, from connected traffic control lights to smart home appliances, develop their chips and code at the same time, shaving two years off the typical five-year timeline to create a device.

Throughout the electronics industry to develop into physical chips, the company supplies the underlying blueprints to many chipmakers.

The chip technology firm, under the new system will send those blueprints to chipmakers and at the same time will supply a “virtual” version to cloud computing companies such as Amazon Web Services.

Those cloud data centres will provide a simulation of the chip’s circuitry that software developers can use to write their code, while chipmakers develop a physical chip at the same time.

That is much more efficient than the current system, which requires “hardware farms” of test devices that software developers use to hone their code, Mohamed Awad, vice president of internet of things and embedded technologies at the chip technology firm – Arm Ltd, told Reuters.

To test the wake word “Alexa” on connected devices made by third-party companies, Amazon for example plans to use the new system.

“They support over 150 different Alexa-enabled devices. So without this, they’d have to create a hardware farm. By removing physical hardware dependencies, they can accelerate updates”, Awad said.
