ARM Limited Key Developments

Huawei Technologies Inks ARMv8 License Agreement with ARM Ltd

Huawei Technologies declared that license agreement has been inked with ARM Ltd. on ARMv8 architecture. Huawei Technologies will be able to use ARMv8 to design its own microprocessor cores, which strengthened cooperation between both sides that has lasted for nine years. In 2012, Huawei Technologies became a major partner of Cortex-A57 processor based on ARMv8.

Sprint Nextel Corp. and ARM Ltd. Collaborate to Drive Innovation Around Internet of Things

ARM Ltd. announced availability of a rapid prototyping developer kit for the Internet of Things market that integrates the Sprint Nextel Corp. Broadband USB 598U Modem by Sierra Wireless with the mbed microcontroller development platform, which is based on the ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-M3 processor. The IoT market is set to grow exponentially, with Gartner estimating 50 billion connected devices by 2020. The majority of these devices will be driven by connected sensors, requiring the support of a large community of developers from highly diverse industries. The devices and sensors will be used across a wide range of key industry verticals, including automotive, transportation, healthcare, utilities, retail, and energy. Historically the creation of connected devices for such applications has involved complicated development on 8-bit microcontroller architectures with even further complexity involved when integrating a modem. The rapid prototyping developer kit from Sprint and ARM overcomes these challenges by providing a simple C++ development environment on a full 32-bit high-performance microcontroller. These open source drivers will be pre-integrated for the Sprint Mobile Broadband USB 598U Modem, allowing developers to focus on their particular project with the reassurance of a fully integrated, functional modem. Sprint has optimized the Sprint Mobile Broadband USB 598U Modem to take advantage of the Sprint 3G CDMA EVDO Rev. A network. The energy-efficient Cortex-M3 processor provides a scalable high-performance 32-bit microcontroller required to enable easy development with standard programming using C++.

eSilicon Corporation and ARM Ltd. Sign Multi-Year IP Agreement

ARM Ltd. and eSilicon Corporation announced that they have signed a comprehensive multi-year licensing agreement for a broad portfolio of ARM(R) intellectual property (IP). This includes the high-performance, energy-efficient ARM Cortex(TM) processor and ARM Mali(TM) graphics processing unit (GPU) families, ARM CoreSight(TM) on-chip debug and trace IP, and hard macro implementations using ARM Artisan(R) Physical IP. Access to this broad range of ARM IP will enable eSilicon to deliver optimized, complex custom ICs to customers in a variety of markets, including the communications, computer, consumer and industrial segments.
