ARM Processors & Chipsets Visualized

ARM (Advanced RISC Machine) chipset architecture developed by the ARM holdings back in 1987 has been a dominant force in the portable electronics industry. In 2005 about 98% of mobile phones were running on ARM processor and today, in 2012 virtually all Android tablet chipset are based on ARM architecture. The earliest of ARM chipset family was ARM7, while the newest and most powerful ARM Cortex A15. The below lists incorporates various chipset models grouped by chipset families, from oldest family at the top to the newest at the bottom of the list.

The ARM Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processor is the highest-performance licensable processor the industry. Devices with Cortex A15 to be released in 2013 it will include smartphones, tablets, mobile computing, high-end digital home, servers and wireless infrastructure
