| BANGALORE, India — ARM Holdings plc, which received a development center in Bangalore when it acquired Artisan Components earlier this year, plans to have its own center in India sometime next year. |
However, regulations in place since the acquisition was announced prevented the company from stating more specific plans for India, according to Robin Saxby, chairman of ARM. He added that ARM will continue to use the Artisan center.
ARM has long had local companies such as Wipro and Sasken Communication Technologies Ltd. as partners. Those companies continue to use ARM cores to develop solutions for microprocessors, peripherals and silicon-on-chip (SoC).
Saxby said plans included increasing the number of such partners and tapping into India's growing wireless phone services business as it presents a major business opportunity for the company.
