Strategy The company’s strategy is to create technology that resides at the heart of advanced digital products. It is the company’s strategy for its IP to be used by the world’s leading semiconductor providers to create these digital products. The company’s strategy includes leveraging partner alliances; increased availability of third-party support of arm technology; focusing on needs of systems companies; and strategic involvement in related products and services. Patent and IP Protection As of December 31, 2015, the company held 1,359 U.S. patents in various aspects of its technology; and 1,366 non-U.S. patents with expiration dates ranging from 2016 to 2034.

Significant Events In March 2016, ARM and TSMC announced a multi-year agreement to collaborate on a 7nm FinFET process technology which includes a design solution for future low-power, high-performance compute SoCs. In May 2016, Advanced Micro Devices, ARM, Huawei, IBM, Mellanox, Qualcomm Technologies Inc, and Xilinx, Inc. have joined forces to bring a high-performance open acceleration framework to data centers. The companies are collaborating on the specification for the new Cache Coherent Interconnect for Accelerators (CCIX). For the first time in the industry, a single interconnect technology specification will ensure that processors using different instruction set architectures (ISA) can coherently share data with accelerators and enable efficient heterogeneous computing – significantly improving compute efficiency for servers running data center workloads.
