ARM Unveils the ARM IP Portfolio Program - A New Model for ARM IP

Socle Technology Corp, One of the World's Leading-Edge Providers of SoC Design, is First Member of ARM's IP Portfolio Program Which Enables Fabless Design Houses to Exploit the Widest Range of ARM Technology as Part of a Full Turnkey Service

CAMBRIDGE, England, November 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ARM ((LSE: ARM); (Nasdaq: ARMH)) today announced the ARM IP Portfolio Program, an innovative business and engagement model for companies offering custom ASIC design services. The initiative provides access to a comprehensive range of ARM(R) IP and an opportunity for closer cooperation on new business opportunities. ARM also announced that Socle Technology Corporation, a leading system-on-chip (SoC) design service and solution provider in Taiwan, is the first member of the new program and will offer the service worldwide.

Under the terms of the ARM IP Portfolio Program, selected companies can license a package of ARM technology (including processor, graphics, fabric & physical IP), which can be applied according to customer requirements. Immediate access accelerates time to market and provides the flexibility to adapt as requirements change from initial design through to manufacture. Compatibility between fully optimized ARM technologies also reduces risk and increases the likelihood of creating a competitive and compelling final solution.

The first member of the program, Socle Technology Corporation, has licensed the ARM11(TM) processor family, the Mali(TM)-200 and Mali-55 cores for advanced 3D consumer graphics, CoreSight(TM) technology for advanced debug and trace capability and a full range of configurable AMBA(R) PrimeCell(R) peripherals (including interconnect, dynamic and static memory controllers, DMA controllers, and Level 2 Cache Controllers). Each item of IP also includes ARM support and maintenance as a condition of the license.

"At Socle, we are committed to working closely together with other industry leaders to deliver high-quality, low-power, energy-efficient solutions to our customer base," said David Lyou, president and CEO, Socle Technology Corporation. "Socle's SoC design platforms, SoC-ImP(R) and uPlatform(R), with rapid access to ARM technology and Chartered's advanced foundry process will further enable us to provide higher-performance, more reliable and predictable design and development solutions to our OEM customers, and improve faster time-to-market for their digital devices."

Chartered, one of the world's leading dedicated semiconductor foundries, has invested in Socle as the major shareholder, with an eye to closer design collaboration and to provide a one-stop-shop ASIC solution in advanced process nodes.

"Socle Technology is well known as a leading provider of ARM technology-based embedded platform design solutions and our partnership with them is the first in our new, innovative business model which sees ARM engage in a strategic partnership with this important community," said Philip Lu, president, ARM Taiwan. "The ARM IP Portfolio Program will enable ARM, in collaboration with its Partners, to meet the requirements of the rapidly changing and fragmented supply chain with the widest possible application of optimized ARM technology."

Socle is a member of the ARM Approved Design Center program, a world-wide partnership of service companies certified to deliver expert design services around ARM IP. The ARM Approved Design Center program is part of the ARM Connected Community.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
