ARM and Cadence Tape Out First 14nm FinFET Test Chip

According to ARM, the chip included the Cortex-A7 processor itself, as well as Artisan standard-cell libraries, "next-generation" memories, and general purpose IOs.

"This is an important milestone in our efforts to enable our silicon partners for continued low-power leadership in future generations of innovative, energy-efficient mobile products, said Dipesh Patel, vice president and general manager of the Physical IP Division at ARM. "Taping out ARMs most energy-efficient applications processor on Samsung's advanced low-power manufacturing process was achieved through the combination of leading-edge technology and R&D excellence, as well as a deep and early collaboration with Samsung and Cadence."

ARM said that the process is targeting high-density, high-performance and ultra-low power SoCs for "future smartphones, tablets and all other advanced mobile devices". There was no information when 14 nm ARM processors will become available.
