Computerphile’s most recent video is a great history of the ARM microprocessor architecture from one of its original creators, Steve Furber! Steve has very interesting anecdotes about the creation of the first ARM microprocessor at Acorn Computers, like how risky the project was to bet on using a reduced instruction set (RISC) processor design. Watch the interview for more about how the ARM architecture grew to power billions of machines (including the Raspberry Pi!) today.
