ARM's (ARMH) CPU cores are going into Baidu's data centers ... and they might also wind up in human stomachs. Marvell (MRVL) says Baidu will use its ARM-based Armada XP server CPUs in systems handling cloud storage services. Meanwhile, Freescale (FSL) has developed an ARM-based microcontroller that measures just 1.9 x 2 mm, and says it's working with customers/partners on "products that can be swallowed." Though ARM mobile and server chips get more press, the company's growing microcontroller share is driving much of its unit growth. (previous)

    Are you a shill for ARM? ARM makes money on huge volume, this isn't it.

    Agree this isn't high volume but it is a start in a new market segment for one company in the ARM ecosystem. A few years ago anything like this would have been brushed off as a pipe dream. Today we have multiple manufacturers and software ware teams developing solution to fill in various niches. All of this is new business for ARM. One thing to note is that one "ARM" server can have hundreds of ARM cores. eg See this review of a Boston server: http://bit.ly/XY0bYZ
