ARM Limited Key Developments

ARM Launches ARM Education Media to Develop the Next Generation of Engineering Talent

ARM has launched ARM® Education Media, a subscription-based digital content hub offering premium Education Kits with interactive online courses and e-textbooks. These new resources will enable academics, students, professional engineers and the wider training market to keep up with the latest industry developments and gain the skills needed to compete in today’s job market. Launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair, ARM Education Media will offer premium Education Kits combining theoretical and practical materials with videos and interactive quizzes. The hub will also feature engaging lab demonstrations using software and hardware technologies from the ARM ecosystem. The materials are designed for a ‘flipped classroom’ approach, or self-study, and cover a variety of topics. The first four courses focus on efficient and rapid embedded systems design, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Digital Signal Processing (DSP). The Education Kits are highly modular and configurable, to allow for the rapid creation of new, customized content in various formats and packages. The content will be reassessed annually and revamped every four years to ensure it maintains industry relevance. The initiative is the culmination of several years of collaboration with thousands of educational institutions, industrial partners, students, recruiters and managers worldwide. The first four online Education Kits are available now for institutions and corporate subscriptions. Individual learners will be able to subscribe online in first quarter of 2017. E-textbooks will also be available in first quarter of 2017.

Mentor Graphics Corp. Signs Multi-Year Subscription Agreement with ARM Ltd

Mentor Graphics Corp. has signed a multi-year subscription agreement with ARM Ltd. to enable early access to a broad range of ARM intellectual property, or IP, and related technologies. This will enable Mentor to optimize its tools and methodologies for ARM-based system-on-chip (SoC) designs. Mentor will have access to ARM Cortex processors for the ARMv8-A and ARMv7-An architectures, ARM Mali graphics processors, ARM CoreLink system IP, ARM Artisan physical IP and ARM POP IP for implementation acceleration. Through this agreement, Mentor can optimize its flows and tools for ARM IP before it is available on general release. This will enable Mentor's customers to add the new ARM IP to their designs and trust their verification, implementation and test environments are fully optimized. This will allow them to achieve the high level of performance and functionality in their newest ASIC and FPGA designs. ARM, in common with many companies in the ARM ecosystem, uses the Mentor Enterprise Verification Platform (EVP), including the Veloce and Questa platforms, to verify new processor IP and system IP designs. For digital design implementation, the agreement will help Mentor optimize RealTime Designer physical RTL synthesis and Olympus-SoC Place & Route solutions for ARM-based designs. For IC test generation, processor-specific optimizations to the Tessent MemoryBIST, LogicBIST and TestKompress flows will also be available and validated.
