ARM Holdings – Architecting Smart Technology
Arm Holdings is a leading semiconductor company that designs microprocessors, physical intellectual property (IP) and related technology and software. Headquartered in Cambridgeshire, U.K., the company develops and licenses technology that forms the core of many digital electronic devices such as smartphones, servers and sensor-based products.
ARM’s strength is its patent assets. The company makes significant investment in its research and development (R&D) efforts to build mobile processor core and system designs, and licenses or sells them to electronics and system companies. In 2016, SoftBank Group took over Arm Holdings to address the Internet of Things (IoT) space. As a part of its IoT strategy, Arm has made several acquisitions, the most recent one being the acquisition of Treasure Data. This comes as a part of the company’s plan to launch a new connectivity and data management software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform
