ARM is developing its second wave of 64-bit processors as it tries to maintain its edge over Intel in smartphones and tablets. The chips—called Maya and Artemis—are already being licensed to chip makers, said Simon Segars, CEO of ARM, during a webcast earnings press conference on Tuesday.
Segars declined to talk more about the processors, saying ARM will reserve details for the actual announcement date. But he said that the company’s future processors are being targeted at not only its existing smartphone, tablet and server markets, but also at areas like automotive and networking equipment.
“Artemis and Maya are the fruits of the investment that we’ve made in R&D over the years,” Segars said. “The products [we] are creating will help us sustain market share.”
