for a smartphone or controlling the engine management system in a car. ARM Cortex Family. This is the company’s newest family of processor cores. The family is split into three series, such as A Series targeting applications processors running complex operating systems; R Series targeting real time deeply embedded markets and running real time operating systems; and M Series addressing the needs of the low cost microcontroller markets. Graphic, Video and Display Technology IP The company develops graphics accelerator IP and software for semiconductor systems-on-chip (SoC) vendors that deliver multimedia images without compromising performance, power consumption or system cost. The company’s IP provides major 3D graphics solutions suitable for mobile phones, portable media players, set-top boxes, handheld gaming devices and infotainment systems (including automotive). The company also develops video processor and display technology IP, which combined with its graphics IP provides customers with an integrated multimedia platform, which is becoming important in devices, such as mobile computers, portable media players and digital TVs. Physical IP The company is a major provider of physical IP components for the design and manufacture of ICs, including SoCs. ARM Artisan physical IP products comprise embedded memory, standard cell and input/output components, which are designed to provide the customers’ desired combination of performance, density, power and yield for a given manufacturing process. Artisan physical IP also includes a limited portfolio of analog and mixed-signal products. The company’s physical IP components are developed for various process geometries ranging from 7nm – 250nm design and are validated by producing them in silicon to ensure that they perform to specification. The company licenses its products to customers for the design and manufacture of ICs used in complex, high-volume applications, such as portable computing devices, communication systems, cellular phones, microcontrollers, consumer multimedia products, automotive electronics, personal computers and workstations and many others. The company’s physical IP components are developed and delivered using a proprietary methodology that includes both commercial and proprietary electronic design automation tools and techniques. This methodology ensures that the company’s IP components provide optimized power, performance, and area while reducing customer risk and time-to-market. ARM physical IP is integrated into various customer design methodologies and support industry standard IC design tools, including those from EDA tool vendors, such as Cadence, Mentor Graphics, and Synopsys, Inc., as well as many other specialty IC design and modeling tools. To support the interoperability of these various IC design tool environments, each of the company’s products includes a set of verified tool models. Physical IP Products Logic and Memory Products: The company’s embedded memory components include random access memories, read only memories and register files. These memories are provided in the form of a configurable ‘memory compiler’, which allows the customer to generate the appropriate configuration for the given application. The company’s memory components include many configurable features, such as power-down modes, low-voltage data retention and fully static operation, as well as different transistor options to trade off performance and power. In addition, the company’s memory components include built-in test interfaces that support the primary industry test methodologies and tools. The company’s memory components also offer redundant storage elements, which might help increase the manufacturing yield of IC designs containing large memories. ARM logic products deliver optimal performance, power and area when building ARM Processors, Graphics, Video and Display Technology IP along with general SoC subsystem implementation, designed to deliver highest yield through extensive manufacturing optimization. Processor Optimization Packs (POP IP): The company has created optimized logic and memory physical IP for a specific
