IBM and ARM extend relationship to build 14nm chips

Smaller, lighter, faster chips for mobile devices

IBM and ARM today announced that they are to continue working together in order to jointly produce 14nm (nanometre) processors.

According to a statement, the two companies will extend their existing working relationship to produce intellectual property optimised for the IBM manufacturing processes. The move reflects current trends to build smaller, faster and less power-hungry chip designs for mobile devices.

"ARM's Cortex processors have become the leadership platform for the majority of smartphones and many other emerging mobile devices," said Michael Cadigan, general manager at IBM Microelectronics.

"We plan to continue working closely with ARM and our foundry customers to speed the momentum of ARM technology by delivering highly advanced, low-power semiconductor technology for a variety of new communications and computing devices."

"IBM has a proven track record of delivering the core research and development that is relied upon by major semiconductor vendors worldwide for their advanced semiconductor devices. Their leadership of the ISDA alliance, which features a diverse set of top-tier companies as members, is growing in importance as consolidation trends in the semiconductor manufacturing industry continue," said Simon Segars, EVP and general manager, ARM physical IP division.

"This agreement will ensure we are able to deliver highly tuned ARM Artisan Physical IP solutions on advanced ISDA process technologies to meet the early time-to-market our customers demand."
