SEMIFIVE working with Arm to accelerate custom SoC designs
Arm has announced that SEMIFIVE, a silicon design solutions provider, has joined the Arm ecosystem to accelerate the deployment of application-optimised custom SoC designs built on Arm technology.
As a result of this collaboration with Arm, SEMIFIVE will have access to a broad range of Arm IP, including Cortex-A, Cortex-R and Cortex-M CPUs, Mali GPUs, Ethos NPUs, as well as various system and subsystem IP.
Access to SEMIFIVE’s innovative platform SoC solution combined with Samsung Foundry’s leading edge process technologies, will provide customers with custom silicon for specialised processing with lower cost, faster time to market and reduced development risks.
This collaboration enables SEMIFIVE to further expand its differentiated platform SoC solution and ASIC design services and extends the reach of the Arm ecosystem into an even broader range of end markets and customers.
“SEMIFIVE is a company committed to a single idea that the world needs more custom SoCs. By working with Arm, we can tap into Arm’s power efficient and high-performance processor IP that is widely adopted in chips used in a variety of applications,” said Brandon Cho, CEO of SEMIFIVE. “This collaboration further expands our offering as an SoC platform provider, and will enable our mutual customers to have faster, more cost-efficient access to custom SoC designs.”
“As Moore’s Law comes to an end, specialised processing is rapidly becoming the key to innovation across all forms of compute,” added Will Abbey, SVP sales and partner enablement, Arm. “By joining the Arm ecosystem and licensing this broad range of Arm solutions, SEMIFIVE will be able to combine their deep design solution expertise with a trusted, proven foundation to deliver custom SoCs to enable their customers to differentiate and innovate with specialised processing solutions.”
