What: ARM today announced, at the ARM Technology Symposium in Taipei, the opening of an ARM Design Center in the Hsinchu Science Park, Hsinchu, Taiwan. The focus of the design center will be physical IP development and processor implementation to support ARM® Cortex™ processors, ARM® Mali™ Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and ARM Artisan® physical IP products.
The ARM Hsinchu Design Center is staffed by a combination of existing ARM employees on assignment and new local staff, and forms a key bridge between the local design community and ARM engineering centers around the world. Product development is now underway at the center for 28nm and 20nm technologies, targeting advanced ARM Cortex-A Series processors and Mali-T600 Series GPUs.
Why: The opening of the ARM Hsinchu Design Center reinforces the importance of Taiwan and the Asia Pacific region to ARM. The Taiwan semiconductor industry plays a major role in the ARM ecosystem, with companies involved in development of both market-leading system-on-chip (SoC) platforms and advanced manufacturing technologies. The center will enable even closer interaction with local ARM partners and serve as an important focal point in the region for advanced technology engineering.
