VDKs Give Software Designers A Head Start

Every engineer knows the importance of having the right tools for the job. ARM big.LITTLE processing gives designers those tools. By taking advantage of a high-performance processor for compute-intensive tasks and a highly energy-efficient processor for less demanding jobs, design teams can extend battery life by up to 70% for applications with highly variable workloads, such as smart phones. However, …
