Apple has hired a leading ARM processor designer

Highly qualified specialists in the modern technological field help to surpass competitors, provide leadership in the release of new products. Apple was able to get Mike Filippo, the leading chip architecture developer for the British company ARM. Currently, Apple has not announced which project will involve the specialist, but it is known that Filippo in ARM worked on Cortex-A76 processors and promising developments of Hercules and Zeus . He also designed the architecture of the Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A72 cores. The contract between Apple and Filippo was concluded in May 2019. He currently works in Austin at a research center specializing in semiconductor products. Filippo’s knowledge and experience can help Apple develop single-chip systems for watches, smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, and even Mac processors, since they use modified kernels from ARM. Filippo may be useful for developing Apple’s iPhone and iPad mobile devices, and Mac proprietary desktop processors have long been planning a move from x86 to ARM. Another area of application for Filippo’s experience could be the development of processors for augmented reality headsets.
