Arm, DARPA Agree to Accelerate Technological Innovation

Arm has announced a three-year partnership agreement with the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), establishing an access framework to all commercially available Arm® technology, the company said.

With DARPA´s Electronics Resurgence Initiative gaining momentum, the new agreement will enable the research community that supports DARPA´s programs to quickly and easily take advantage of Arm´s IP, tools and support, accelerating innovation in a variety of fields.

With more than 170 billion Arm-based chips shipped to date, Arm offers the industry´s most proven IP, providing distributed intelligence from cloud to edge and endpoint. The expanded partnership enables DARPA researchers to have the flexibility and scalability to access vertical market compute from small embedded sensors to high-performance systems.

To support the work DARPA does, multidimensional collaboration is key. An Arm IP license gives the DARPA community a portal to the world´s largest open compute ecosystem of silicon designers and software developers, enabling the lowest SoC build costs and smallest risk profile. Projects can transition from concepts to real-world deployments in a fast and efficient way, with guidance on everything from hardware verification to physical implementation and software development.

Arm technology is at the heart of a computing and data revolution that is transforming the way people live and businesses operate.
