Dave discusses the novel and inspiring career that led to the ARM architecture which effectively powers the digital world, being the reason that your phone is small and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.
In the late 1980’s Acorn, a British one-hit-wonder computer company, faced imminent extinction, with its only assets being 18 months of life support rations and perhaps the worst microprocessor ever designed. What they did right was to hire Dave Jaggar, with the ink still wet on his master’s thesis. Over eight years Dave systematically defined the entire ARM architecture, enabling it to be a popular embedded controller for the digital revolution, with around 100 billion units shipped. As ARM’s Head of Architecture Design, Dave authored the ARM Architectural Reference Manual and is the Founding Director of the ARM Austin Design Center.
