He came and answered your questions, his company gave away a couple of Samsung Galaxy Note 3s and now ARM's Cortex A53 lead architect, Peter Greenhalgh, is joining me for a live video interview (via Google Hangouts) tomorrow at noon ET.

Update: We are starting now. You can ask questions on Google+ or just watch the stream on G+ or YouTube. And we're done. Check out the full interview below.

    Will this be available as a audio download later? It's much harder to be tied to Youtube to listen to the podcasts.

    I would also appreciate an audio download

    I, too, would appreciate audio versions on the podcast RSS feed.

    Guess at this point you got to ask about Calxeda even if he's not the right guy to answer.

    I'd love to hear a discussion of designing chips for thermally constrained environments such as phones. I know that's pretty general, but might be fascinating considering his knowledge.

    My question derives from ARM-based devices and fixed-firmware Operating Systems.

    Current ARM devices feature fixed-firmware OS builds; there is no concept of a "general" image that can be installed using generic drivers, and later install better ones. It seems this problem stems from two key points with respect to ARM platforms:

    1. A lack of firmware standard (UEFI, for example) being utilized on ARM devices.
    2 A lack of of specifications for interconnectivity (for example, PCI spec.

    Do you think the industry is moving towards UEFI, a device tree, and "generic" OS images? Do you expect end users will soon be able to update their ARM devices to the latest versions of Android, Windows, or other OSes without requiring third-party firmware engineers like CyanogenMod, for example?

    Windows plays a minor role in the ARM world, there is no need for UEFI.
    Devicetrees and Uboot for linux are already there.

    Google Hangouts ? Isn't that the useless shyte that I had to replace right away with another application in order to be able to send SMS from my Nexus 5 ?
  • quidpro - Friday, December 20, 2013 - link

    you know a lot about phones, that's for sure.
