The first chips based on ARM’s 64-bit ARMv8 designs are just starting to hit the streets this year. But the company is already working on next-generation designs code-named “Maya” and “Artemis.”

The company’s CEO Simon Segars name-dropped the upcoming products when reporting ARM’s latest earnings this week.

ARM doesn’t typically produce and sell chips itself. Instead the company designs technology which is then licensed by companies including Qualcomm, Samsung, and Apple to use in their own chips. The vast majority of smartphones and tablets on the market use some sort of ARM design, although Intel is starting to make a dent in ARM’s market share.

The first designs based on ARMv8 technology are the company’s Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A57 series designs which had previously been code-named “Atlas,” and “Apollo.”

We don’t know much about ARM’s newer designs, aside from the fact that chip makers are already starting to license them. But it looks like ARM is sticking with figures from Greek mythology when choosing names for its upcoming products. So that’s… something… I guess.

  1. I’m really surprised at how unnoticed this news got in the mainstream tech media .
    Especially since the licensing is already at full swing and indicates another huge win for ARM.

    Also we might see this new designs reaching the market comparatively much faster than A5x ones did

  2. Brad, note that the correct spelling is “Maia” – yes, following Greek mythology trend..
