While of course every conference session at ARM TechCon 2013 will provide valuable insights into new developments in the ARM ecosystem, on this blog we’re periodically highlighting sessions in our Sessions Spotlight feature to point out some particularly important ones. In this spotlight we feature “Maximizing Performance of ARM Cortex-A15 for Ultra-Power-Constrained Mobile Devices,” which takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 10:30 am.

This session will be of particular interest to developers in the mid-range mobile space. The speaker, Paddy Mamtora, a project engineering director at Cadence and an SoC designer himself, will provide guidance to other SoC designers to achieve finely tuned and best-in-class PPA for power-constrained mobile devices. Mamtora will show how the highly power-optimized implementation of a dual-core Cortex-A15 is expertly designed for midrage mobile devices and how to take advantage the Cortex-A15’s power-management capabilities.

As mobile customers continue to demand ever-increasing power management capabilities from their devices, manufacturers that are able deliver on these requirements will stand out. Both chip design engineers and software developers will gain valuable knowledge from this session.
