TI, IBM, Samsung and Freescale on board


Several tech heavyweights have formed Linaro, a company aimed at jointly developing ARM processors. The founding fathers of Linaro are Texas Instruments, IBM, Samsung, Freescale, ST Ericsson and, of course, ARM.

Linaro is a non profit software engineering company that will simplify ARM development and it will be backed by tens of millions of dollars by its founders. The move doesn't come as a surprise, as ARM chips are becoming increasingly popular in smartphones, and recently, tablets and smartbooks. However, there are quite a few ARM chip designs around, and even more software versions geared towards specific versions. Linaro should help make things a bit simpler and more standardized.
