process technology, supported by implementation knowledge and ARM benchmarking. When combined together, POP IP allows chip designers to optimize the company’s microprocessors for maximum performance, lowest power or to develop customized solutions balancing power and performance for their specific application. Silicon on Insulator (SOI) Products: SOI is an alternative methodology to traditional semiconductor fabrication techniques. Development Tools and Platforms The company’s development tools are used to build, simulate, execute, debug and optimize software for ARM processors. The use of the company’s tools helps to reduce development risk and to accelerate time to market for its licensees and their OEM customers. The portfolio of the company’s development tools comprises Fast Models and Cycle Models, Development Boards, ARM Development Studio and Keil tools. ARM Fast Models are simulation models of ARM processors and system IP, which are used by engineers to build a virtual prototype of their system. ARM Cycle Models are also used to create virtual prototypes. Cycle Models are slower, but provide detailed timing information of the execution, and are used for SoC architectural exploration and software optimization ahead of silicon availability. ARM Development Boards provide early hardware implementations of ARM processors, graphics processors and system IP on test chips, which are typically used for early software development and benchmarking. The ARM Development Studio is an integrated suite of software development tools that includes a graphical development environment, build tools that translate high-level code into instructions that could be executed by an ARM processor, a debugger for fixing mistakes in the code, and performance analysis tools for improving the performance and power efficiency of the software. The Keil Microcontroller Development Kit is also an integrated toolsuite, which primarily targets software development on Cortex-M processor-based catalog microcontrollers. Unlike the Development Studio, which has the flexibility required to cope with many-core SoCs running complex operating systems, the Keil Microcontroller Development Kit has a narrow focus on a single type of device, and could therefore provide an optimal experience for developments on this microcontroller. Enterprise Software The company is developing its first generation of products licensed to enterprises that would be run on their own servers and data centers. The company’s mbed Device Server is a middleware that connects the Internet of Things (IoT) devices to Web applications. It enables secure communication and device management for developing and deploying enterprise applications based on open standards. Support and Maintenance Services Support, Maintenance and Training: The company provides support and maintenance services under its license agreements to its semiconductor partners, as well as the company’s product-related training. ARM Partner Network Semiconductor Partners: The company licenses its technology on a worldwide and non-exclusive basis to semiconductor partners that manufacture and sell ARM-based chip solutions to systems companies. As of December 31, 2015, the company’s technology had been licensed to approximately 420 semiconductor companies, including various major semiconductor companies worldwide. The company serves this base from offices in the U.K., P.R. China, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, Hungary, Slovenia, Belgium, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, and the United States. Tools and Development Partners: The company enables its tools and development partners to design tools that help its semiconductor partners and customers design ARM-based systems. The company provides IP and support to these tools and development partners to give end customers of the ARM architecture the possible range of tools support. Design Partners: The company also offers the ARM Approved Design Center Program whereby design houses, which pass its qualification process, are able to access the company’s technologies to enable them to undertake ARM-based design
