ARM, Globalfoundries sign strategic partnership

As reported here exclusively a couple of weeks ago, AMD spinoff Globalfoundries has definitely signed a deal with ARM.

The companies said they have signed a “broad agreement” on processor implementation and circuit optimization to give their mutual customers an enablement program aimed at next generation system on a chip (SoC) applications.

The program is built around a suite of ARM Physical IP, Fabric IP and Process IP and will focus initially on implementing low power and high performance ARM Cortex -A9 processors on Globalfoundries’ 28 nanometer HKMG (high k metal gate) process.

Warren East, CEO of ARM, said: “This collaboration with Globalfoundries and their commitment to delivering leading edge technology makes them an idea; partner to accelerate the adoption of ARM processor based technology at 28 nanometres”
