ARM, TI enter technology security collaboration
In an effort to combat the results of phone theft, ARM said it will collaborate with Texas Instruments Inc. for a security solution using its TrustZone technology. TI will implement the technology on its OMAP platform and TCS chipset line by using the recently licensed ARM1176JZF-S core.
