What: ARM has been honored with a TSMC Partner of the Year award for the sixth consecutive year in recognition of outstanding performance in the Processor IP category. This year marks the first time TSMC has honored a partner for its processor intellectual property (IP). ARM received the award at the 2015 TSMC Open Innovation Platform® Ecosystem Forum for its scalable, energy-efficient processor IP that is at the heart of world’s most advanced system-on-chip (SoC) designs.
Why: The TSMC and ARM® partnership has enabled customers to achieve volume SoC production in advanced silicon process nodes for mobile, enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. This year has seen a significant increase in the shipment of SoCs that utilize 64-bit capable ARMv8-A architecture and ARM Artisan® physical IP. The award judges assessed customer feedback, TSMC9000 compliance, general support, the number of tapeouts and the quantity of wafers shipped.
