Humanizing the Digital World

The world's leading semiconductor intellectual property (IP) supplier

ARM is at the heart of the world’s most advanced digital products. Our technology enables the creation of new markets and transformation of industries and society. We design scalable, energy efficient-processors and related technologies to deliver the intelligence in applications ranging from sensors to servers, including smartphones, tablets, enterprise infrastructure and the Internet of Things.

Our innovative technology is licensed by ARM Partners who have shipped more than 60 billion Systems on Chip (SoCs) containing our intellectual property since the company began in 1990. Together with our Connected Community, we are breaking down barriers to innovation for developers, designers and engineers, ensuring a fast, reliable route to market for leading electronics companies.

Company Highlights

  • The world’s leading semiconductor IP company
  • Founded in 1990
  • Over 60 billion ARM based chips shipped to date
  • Over 1100 licenses signed with over 300 companies
  • Royalties received on all ARM-based chips
  • Gaining market share in long-term secular growth markets
  • ARM revenues typically grow faster than overall semiconductor industry revenues

The ARM business model involves the designing and licensing of IP rather than the manufacturing and selling of actual semiconductor chips. We license IP to a network of Partners, which includes the world's leading semiconductor and systems companies. These Partners utilize ARM IP designs to create and manufacture system-on-chip designs, paying ARM a license fee for the original IP and a royalty on every chip or wafer produced. In addition to processor IP, we provide a range of tools, physical and systems IP to enable optimized system-on-chip designs.
