Standard Ticket

After studying Computer Science in Manchester, Will started his career for a small startup developing binary translation tools. Their most famous tool was the original 'Rosetta', which allowed Mac users to run ppc applications on the new x86 Macs. Will has been at Arm for around 10 years. In that time, he has led the LLVM team responsible for developing SVE support, as well as launching Arm Compiler for Linux - our commercial LLVM-based toolchain focused on the High Performance Computing space. Around 3 years ago, he changed role to Technology Management, where he is now responsible for guiding and prioritising the roadmaps for all the GCC and LLVM-based toolchain development at Arm. Will lives in the English Lake District, with his wife and two sons.

MAD24-218 Introducing the next generation of Arm Compiler

Session

Toolchain

  • Wednesday, 15 May 14:20 - 14:45
  • Room: Session 1 | Las Palmas I

In this session, Arm would like to provide a technical introduction to the next generation of our flagship commercial toolchain, Arm Compiler. This new toolchain represents a shift in strategy towards open source components, and is very closely related to the open source [LLVM Embedded Toolchain for Arm](https://github.com/ARM-software/LLVM-embedded-toolchain-for-Arm). Leveraging open source components allows us easier collaboration with the community, as well as making it easier to offer upstream features such as support for security sanitizers. This toolchain aims to meet the changing needs of the internet-of-things and Automotive sectors, where use of POSIX RTOS and C++ is getting popular due its greater portability and software reuse. This presents a challenge - and opportunity - to toolchains such as Arm Compiler, to provide support for higher level language constructs, especially when used in Functional Safety.
