"Bob Terwilliger"[edit]

I was suspicious of the suggestion that their first CEO was Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons... but it turns out to be true. Well, it turns out to be his real name anyway.

"Unlike most embedded microprocessors you can add extra instructions, registers and functionality as if they were made from Lego."

Is this some king of typo? It links to the article about Lego building toys. (talk) 06:34, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
This core is configurable; so it has some optional blocks which can be added or removed from project. It is compared with LEGO because it is easy to reconfigure a core. `a5b (talk) 21:05, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

300 mln[edit]

"Semiconductor company licensees of ARC products ship approximately 300 million chips containing ARC processor cores every year."

Is it actual information? Eetimes says that total cpu market was 10 bln of cores in 2011 and ARC had 10% of this market. `a5b (talk) 21:05, 22 May 2012 (UTC)


Is this company more or less directly owned by Intel? I find it a bit implausible that Intel would include an ARC core in most of their chipsets (as Intel Management Engine) unless Intel had some good hold on the ARC company itself.
