CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- May 23, 2013

ARM announced that LG Electronics has licensed the next generation of ARM®
Cortex®-A50 series of central processing unit (CPU) solutions and the next
generation of ARM Mali™ graphics processing units (GPUs). This agreement means
that LG Electronics will have access to ARM’s highest-performing CPU and GPU
solutions to create market-leading technology.

This agreement builds on an already strong relationship between LG Electronics
and ARM, as LG Electronics has previously used both Cortex processors and Mali
GPUs in its system-on-chip (SoC) technology. This new agreement will enable LG
Electronics to offer a wider range of high-performance SoCs. Launched in
October, the Cortex-A50 family bridges the performance requirements of
next-generation 32-bit and 64-bit applications. The next generation of the
Mali GPUs licensed by LG Electronics will extend the performance capabilities
beyond that offered by the Mali-T678 GPU, taking graphics and GPU computing to
new levels.

“The close interaction between the CPU and GPU becomes increasingly important
as solutions transition between the 32-bit and 64-bit world,” said Bo-ik Sohn,
senior vice president, LG Electronics. “Being able to implement Full Profile
GPU Compute in conjunction with ARM big.LITTLE™ processing configurations will
be a key driver to the overall performance and capabilities of our devices.”

“Licensing the highest-performing IP from ARM for both CPU and GPU enables LG
Electronics to expand the possibilities for end devices,” said Pete Hutton,
executive vice president & general manager, Media Processing Division, ARM.
“The capabilities of next-generation Cortex CPUs and Mali GPUs in concert will
make innovative features, at market-leading levels of energy efficiency, a
