Qualcomm Brings ARM Servers to Server Processor Market


qualcomm enters server market

Qualcomm and ARM have worked together to design a 10nm server processor dubbed Falkor, a first for both companies. ARM, the mobile processor specialist is confident that this move will finally put them in a good position in the server processor market. According to an ARM executive earlier this year, the server business will experience growth within the next two years and it will become an important part of their own IP firm.

The Centric 2400 is a chip that was built around the Falkor, which is Qualcomm’s custom ARMv8-complaint CPU. The unit has up to 48 cores and comes with 10nm FinFET processing technology.

Qualcomm has called bringing the ARM-Based server processor to the open market a “monumental achievement,” much like when the 1onm mobile Snapdragon processor was released.

Though some think it is a lot to ask for, Qualcomm is hoping to influence the design of servers as much as power efficiency and a large design ecosystem have for mobiles.

ARM has recently announced the acquisition of a software company that specialized in analyzing tools and high performance computing equipment called Aline Software. This is sure to strengthen its server software tool ecosystem, especially as more jump to make the concept a reality. Socionext, the joint venture just presented a processor with 24 ARM Cortex-A53 cores just last month. Releases such as these are what make Chandrasekher, the general manager of Qualcomm Data Center Technologies business a firm believer in making ARM-based servers the next big power move.
