Amazon is readying its own ARM-compatible processors to power home routers, Wi-Fi hotspots, and network-attached storage boxes.The Alpine system-on-chips were designed by Annapurna Labs, a fabless biz founded in 2011. It is based in San Jose, California, and Israel, and was bought by Amazon in early 2015 for about $350m.The Alpine processor cores use licensed ARM blueprints: they run 32-bit ARMv7 or 64-bit ARMv8 code, so they can take advantage of the toolchains, apps, and things like OpenWRT and open-source hypervisors, in the ARM ecosystem.

Chip blueprint scribbler ARM has released some of the source code for its first public beta of mbed, its operating system for the Internet of Things.The Internet of Things is today’s fancy word for embedded engineering, and ARM is all over that latter space: the tiny and relatively simple processor cores it designs are used in countless gadgets and gizmos, phones and tablets, controllers and sensors, smartcards, and so on.The Brit biz feels it is best positioned, right in the center, to provide the software to bring together low-end, low-power Cortex-M chips and the competing communications standards. In October, ARM revealed mbed OS, which emerged from its mbed.org community of developers and driver code.
