[] AMD 2013 APUs To Include ARM Cortex-A5 Processor For TrustZone Capabilities

At AMD’s 2012 Financial Analyst Day, as part of their presentation on their future strategy AMD’s CTO Mark Papermaster announced that AMD would be looking into integrating 3rd party IP into future AMD APUs. At the time there was a strong assumption that this would be mobile focused – perhaps in the form of a cellular modem or an ARM core – and it turns out the assumptions were both right and wrong. Today AMD is announcing that they are in fact going to start integrating ARM cores into future APUs starting in 2013, but not in the way you’re probably thinking.

Starting with part of their 2013 APU lineup, AMD will be adding an ARM Cortex-A5 processor to the APU for the purpose of adopting ARM's TrustZone secure hardware platform technology. By adopting TrustZone AMD will be able to quickly add support for a secure hardware platform to their APUs, and at the same time they'll be able to leverage the existing base of TrustZone application developers. Today we'll go into why AMD is doing this, and what this means for their various product initiatives, so read on for the full scoop.
