TSMC Honors ARM with Partner Award for Fifth Consecutive Year

November 03, 2014


What: ARM has been honored with the Partner Award from TSMC for the fifth consecutive year in recognition of outstanding partner performance. ARM received the award during the recent 2014 TSMC Open Innovation Platform® Ecosystem Forum for its foundation intellectual property (IP), including ARM® Artisan® physical IP, standard cells, input/output (I/O), and other fundamental building blocks for system-on-chip (SoC) design.

Why: The award is based upon customer feedback, TSMC9000 compliance, general support, number of tape outs and number of wafers shipped. ARM and TSMC continue their collaboration to ensure customers achieve volume production of SoCs in advanced silicon process nodes for mobile, enterprise and Internet of Things applications that demand high-performance and energy-efficient designs.

Having successfully scaled from 20SoC to 16FinFET, ARM and TSMC recently announced that they will collaborate again for 10FinFET. This early pathfinding work will provide valuable learning to enable physical design IP and methodologies in support of customers to tape-out 10FinFET designs as early as Q4 2015.
