Abstract
ARM is a 32-bit RISC processor architecture. It is develop and licenses by British company ARM holdings. ARM holding does not manufacture and sell the CPU devices. ARM holding only licenses the processor architecture to interested parties. There are two main types of licences implementation licenses and architecture licenses. ARM processors have a unique combination of feature such as ARM core is very simple as compare to general purpose processors. ARM chip has several peripheral controller, a digital signal processor and ARM core. ARM processor consumes less power but provide the high performance. Now a day, ARM Cortex series is very popular in Smartphone devices. We will also see the important characteristics of cortex series. We discuss the ARM processor and system on a chip (SOC) which includes the Qualcomm, Snapdragon, nVidia Tegra, and Apple system on chips. In this paper, we discuss the features of ARM processor and Intel atom processor and see which processor is best. Finally, we will discuss the future of ARM processor in Smartphone devices.
