Google, Microsoft working on Chrome for Windows 10 on ARM - 9to5Google
Windows 10 is catching up with all the other operating systems by offering better support for ARM processors, but this means third-party developers will also need to work on making their apps faster in the new ecosystem. via Pocket

Reverse engineering the ARM1, ancestor of the iPhone's processor
"Almost every smartphone uses a processor based on the ARM1 chip created in 1985. The Visual ARM1 simulator shows what happens inside the ARM1 chip as it runs; the result (below) is fascinating but mysterious.[1] In this article, I reverse engineer key parts of the chip and explain how they work, bridging the gap between the puzzling flashing lines in the simulator and what the chip is actually doing. I describethe overall structure of the chip and then descend to the individual transistors, showing how they are built out of silicon and work together to store and process data. After reading this article, you can look at the chip's circuits and understand the data they store."

GitHub - TUD-OS/M3: Microkernel-based system for heterogeneous manycores
This is the official repository of M³: microkernel-based system for heterogeneous manycores [1]. M³ is intended for platforms with very heterogeneous cores and in particular, simple accelerators not able to run an OS kernel (e.g., DSPs, FPGAs, accelerators for specific workloads, etc., but also general purpose cores like ARM and x86 cores). The goal is to provide spatial isolation and access to operating-system services on all cores, i.e., treat all cores as first-class citizens. This is achieved by abstracting the heterogeneity of the cores via a common hardware component per core, called data transfer unit (DTU). The DTU offers all features that are required to treat a core as first-class citizen. The most important features are secure message passing and remote memory access.
