MWC 09: ARM reveals 32nm processor

Processor manufacturer demonstrates its manufacturing ability with its first 32nm chip, scheduled for 2010.

ARM, the company behind the processors used in many mobile devices, has announced a 32nm chip, just one week after Intel did the same.

The Cortex' processor is based on IBM's high-k metal-gate technology, which has enabled the company to shrink the manufacturing process down to fit more transistors onto the die. This increases performance, while reducing power consumption and heat output, which should lead to more powerful mobile devices with longer battery life.

ARM said it has been working with IBM on the chip for the past nine months and it expects full production to start in 2010.

A test chip is on show at the Mobile World Congress, which is currently running in Barcelona.
