ARM

ARM Holdings is the world’s leading semiconductor intellectual property (IP) supplier and as such is at the heart of the development of digital electronic products. Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, and employing over 2000 people, ARM has offices around the world, including design centers in France, India, Sweden, and the US.

The ARM business model involves the designing and licensing of IP rather than the manufacturing and selling of actual semiconductor chips. They license IP to a network of Partners, which includes the world’s leading semiconductor and systems companies. These Partners utilize ARM IP designs to create and manufacture system-on-chip designs, paying ARM a license fee for the original IP and a royalty on every chip or wafer produced. In addition to processor IP, they provide a range of tools, physical and systems IP to enable optimized system-on-chip designs.

With the diversity of ARM IP and the broad ecosystem of supporting silicon and software for ARM-based solutions, the world’s leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) use ARM technology in a wide variety of applications ranging from mobile handsets and digital set top boxes to car braking systems and network routers. Today ARM technology is in use in 95% of smart phones, 80% of digital cameras, and 35% of all electronic devices.
