Industry Standard for Physical IP

ARM’s Artisan® Physical IP, viewed as the industry standard for implementing complex SoC design for over 15 years, means tens of thousands of customer designs successfully implemented. These implementations span across 18 different wafer technologies and eighteen foundries. ARM Physical IP has been tightly integrated into ARM's Cortex™ ProcessorsSystem IP and Mali™ Multimedia Processors to deliver market leading implementations.


Advanced Node Process and IP Development

ARM focuses on having deep technical relationships with the technology leading process development organizations to ensure that our Artisan IP is ready on the latest process technologies when you are ready to start designing. ARM is currently working with TSMC, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, UMC and Samsung on 16/14/10nm FinFET Physical IP solutions. By tightly coupling the development the process and the physical IP, ARM and our foundry partners are able to support early customer tape outs and production ready IP when the process is released.

Watch a video on ARM TV with ARM Fellow Rob Akien about ARM's investment in FinFET Leadership.  Rob breaks down the basic of FinFET technology and highlights some of the multiple test chips that ARM has taped out at multiple foundries over the last 3 years.

ARM has been actively developing on the High-K, Metal Gate (HKMG) process technologies since 2008 and FinFET process technologies since 2011. ARM is currently developing the fifth generation platform at 28nm and third generation platform at 16nm FinFET. No other IP vendor has such extensive silicon experience with HKMG and FinFETtechnologies.


Broad Foundry Support

Most foundries recognize ARM's Artisan® Physical IP as the industry standard by all the leading foundries. More SoCs have been implemented with Artisan IP than has any other. ARM’s Artisan Physical IP provides unparalleled range of products for the widest selection of process technologies in the industry. Benefits include:

  • Broadest selection of foundry and process choices
  • Compatible IP solutions across multiple foundries
  • World leader in Physical IP for SoC implementation
  • Silicon validated and production proven for the lowest risk


Physical IP Design Enablement

ARM Artisan Physical IP products are developed to work seamlessly with leading Electronic Design Automation (EDA) design tools and flows.

ARM works closely with leading EDA partners for ensuring that ARM IP deliverables are optimized for use with the most advanced design tools. ARM collaborates with EDA partners during validation of various design flows and methodologies to ensure quality-of-results and ease-of-use.

Foundry Sponsored IP (FIP)

Several of ARM's foundry partners have chosen to fund the development of our Physical IP products and provide them free of charge to end user customers. This is the Artisan Free Library program that has been the most successful Physical IP online access program for over ten years. This unique model enables SoC designers to quickly obtain and fully utilize a large offering of ARM Physical IP. This IP can be accessed via DesignStart, ARM's IP E-Commerce portal. After a quick registration and approval process, customers can investigate, select and even download front end views for a wide variety of IP.
