SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- October 29, 2013

ARM (LSE: ARM; Nasdaq: ARMH) today at ARM® TechCon™ launched an interactive,
online platform to make it easier to design around its architecture. The new
interactive platform represents the next generation of the ARM Connected
Community (CC) and is a hub where developers and design engineers can
collaborate, discuss ideas and challenges, and stay updated on the latest news
from ARM and its partner CC Teams.

The ARM ecosystem includes more than 1,000 partners, countless developers and
engineers developing ARM-based solutions. Building on ARM’s existing global
network of partners, this next-generation ARM Connected Community interactive
platform combines unified access to partners, ARM engineers, other developers,
forums, discussions, whitepapers and videos. The end result makes it easier to
find information for ARM-based designs, applications and projects.

“With the rapid pace of innovation today, the interactive exchange of ideas
and access to information are more critical than ever before,” said Ian Drew,
chief marketing officer and executive vice president, ARM. “This interactive
platform complements the existing ARM Connected Community program and provides
a forum for meaningful discussion around ARM technologies and architecture. It
will provide easier access to the ARM ecosystem, and has been created to
address the massive growth opportunities across a range of markets and

The interactive platform comprises a series of sub-communities, known as
“places”. Each place has moderators to work with subject-matter experts,
advocates and developers to create content, engage with community members, and
help drive discussion. In the first phase of the platform’s development, it
focuses on the following areas:

Android – This place targets developers of devices or apps for Android™, and
includes information including Android porting guides, reference platform
details and Linux kernel data.

Embedded - This place will discuss the trends, products and platforms that
serve a range of embedded markets across automotive, industrial, medical,
home, agriculture and numerous other industries.

ARM Mali graphics- This is a place to ask questions, collaborate on projects
and discuss the latest Mali™ GPU tools, drivers and development platforms.

ARM Cortex processors – This is the place to be for all things related to ARM
Cortex® processors, whether you are an established developer, designer, SoC
expert or just getting started on ARM.

Smart and Connected – This place focuses on mobile, computing, wearables and
consumer electronics based on ARM technology.

SoC Implementation – This place delves into planning and designing SoCs, as
conversations will cover design and implementation, technology challenges,
manufacturing processes and physical IP.

ARM and Keil Tools – This place focuses on software development families that
offer all the necessary solutions for every stage of the software development
workflow – such as the ARM mbed™ development platform, DS-5™ embedded
development tools and Keil™ MDK-ARM™ software development environment.

China – This place is completely in simplified Chinese and contains blogs,
discussions, videos and whitepapers to help our Chinese developer community to
design on the ARM architecture.

News – This place is the center for news and event information surrounding ARM
and the ARM ecosystem.

Find a Partner - The partner directory collates profiles and product family
information from the global network of more than 1,000 partner companies which
provide solutions along the value chain for products based on the ARM

Anyone may visit the community, but to participate individuals are asked to
