64-bit ARMv8 designers wanted


Qualcomm is advertising at least three software engineering positions that seem to indicate it is gearing up to enter the ARM server market.

According to EE Times, the chipmaker is looking for designers who know their way around ARMv8-based server SoC ASICs and can deal with development, porting and integration of server platform management software and firmware.
