Building the Future of Computing
Born more than 30 years ago with the goal of designing a computer intended to run on a battery, Arm’s DNA is built around power-efficient CPUs. Today, Arm compute platforms are the most power-efficient on the planet and continue to push the thresholds of performance to enable the next generation of smart, AI-capable, visually immersive, and increasingly autonomous experiences on everything from the tiniest sensors to the smartphone to the automobile and to the datacenter. This unique combination of performance and efficiency enabled Arm to change the world by fueling the smartphone revolution - and it's the reason Arm will power every technology revolution moving forward.
The World Leader in CPU Technology
Across industries, Arm technology is building the future of computing. We architect, develop, and license high-performance, low-cost, and energy-efficient IP solutions for CPUs, GPUs, NPUs and interconnect technologies, relied on by many of the world’s leading semiconductor companies and OEMs to develop their products.
In short, Arm licenses the instruction sets for modern chips to partners, who then make chips with customizations for their unique applications. Our trusted computing platforms deliver the right combination of common software standards and foundational hardware building blocks, giving our partners unmatched flexibility in bringing innovative, specialized processing to their products while enabling differentiation where it truly matters.
Our Unique Advantage
Arm-based platforms are trusted, verified and tested, and supported by an unmatched global community of software developers empowered to create on top of them. Together with a success-based business model designed to fuel innovation, Arm is uniquely positioned at the center of the world's largest technology ecosystem.
We offer a range of ways for partners to license Arm technology: Partners can license individual products or take advantage of the freedom to evaluate and test across our entire range via the Arm Total Access and Arm Flexible Access programs.
