Accelerate Complex SoC Designs with Arm Artisan IP

Arm Artisan physical IP components are used for the design and manufacture of complex system-on-chip (SoC) integrated circuits (ICs). Artisan physical IP platforms include:  


  • Logic IP and supporting architect products
  • Embedded memory compilers
  • Interface IP


Artisan’s products are optimized for performance, density, power and yield, as well as for each foundry and process technology from 250nm to 3nm. Combined with POP IP and architect products, Arm Artisan physical IP can ease implementation, challenges for advanced nodes to accelerate core hardening, speed SoC implementation and reduce project risks for IC design.


Arm works closely with the leading EDA vendors and foundries, including GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Samsung, TSMC and UMC, to optimize its technology on process nodes ranging from 250nm to 3nm so that partners get to market quickly and pain-free.

Features and Benefits

Free Access

DesignStart offers free access to a portfolio of Arm Artisan IP, available across a broad range of process technologies and foundries, which paves a low-risk path to implementation for manufacture.

Broad Coverage

Arm Artisan physical IP products are the most comprehensive and advanced in the industry, with the broadest coverage of process technology from 250nm to 3nm.

Designed for Silicon

Arm Artisan physical IP is used with today’s leading EDA tools across bulk CMOS, FinFET, and FDSOI process technologies. It features rigorous silicon validation to ensure high-yield SoCs and low design risk.

Modeled for Accuracy

Accurate modeling helps manage the impact of a variety of effects, for example, variation, IR drop and electromigration, are addressed while getting the most out of the process technology.

Arm Artisan IP Platforms

Embedded Memory IP

Embedded Memory

Artisan embedded memory IP includes an array of silicon-proven SRAM, register file, ROM, and eMRAM compilers for all types of SoC designs, ranging from performance-critical to cost-sensitive and low-power applications.

Interface IP

Arm offers a portfolio of silicon-proven general purpose I/O libraries designed to minimize the impact of your I/O ring and optimized for multirow placement with feedthrough routing, while maintaining required performance, power management, and ESD protection.

Logic IP & Architect

Artisan logic IP and architect products ease implementation challenges for select advance nodes to reduce power, optimize power and area results, improve sign-off conditions, and save design time.
