ARM, Silicon Catalyst team for IP giveaway

Business news |
By Nick Flaherty

Silicon Catalyst and ARM have teamed up to offer startups designing system-on-chip (SoC) free access to ARM’s processor IP.

Under the ARM Flexible Access programme, ARM IP is free for developers to access but chip designers pay a license fee when the chip gets to production and royalties when the chip ships to customers. Over 100 startups have already used the programme to access the extensively verified IP, as well as design and development support from across the ARM ecosystem.

The contest being run by incubator Silicon Catalyst will see the winner receive $150,000 of ARM Technology Credit towards a Flexible Access commercial tape-out. This could cover IP fees for a smaller embedded system or significantly contribute to the cost of a higher performance application.

ARM is a partner of Silicon Catalyst, which has incubator programmes in the US and UK.
