Arm announces next generation Armv8.1-M architecture



Next-generation Armv8.1-M architecture is launched, delivering enhanced machine learning and signal processing for the smallest embedded devices.

The drive towards a world of a trillion connected devices is accelerating and will continue to do so, but only if we can find ways to efficiently expand the compute capabilities on a greater number of constrained devices at the far edge of the network.

In her latest blog, Rhonda Dirvin, senior director, Automotive and IoT Business, Arm, introduces Arm Helium technology, a new M-Profile Vector Extension (MVE) for next generation Arm Cortex-M series processors, aimed at small, embedded devices, where local decision-making is required.

Helium delivers:

  • Enhanced compute capabilities to the Armv8.1-M architecture
  • Up to 15x performance uplift for machine learning and up to 5x uplift to signal processing tasks on the smallest of edge devices
