Annual General Meeting (“AGM”)
 
Cambridge, UK, 2 May 2013 - ARM Holdings plc [(LSE: ARM); (Nasdaq: ARMH)] announces that the AGM of the Company was held today at which the Chairman, Sir John Buchanan paid tribute to Warren East who, as announced in March 2013, will be stepping down as CEO to be replaced by Simon Segars with effect from 30 June 2013.
 
Sir John Buchanan, Chairman said:
 
“Warren has transformed ARM during his time as CEO.  In 2001 ARM had one processor product line found mainly in mobile phones.  Now ARM provides the broadest portfolio of technologies in the industry, used by more than 300 semiconductor customers in nearly 9 billion chips last year. During Warren’s tenure the Company has received royalties for over 40 billion ARM-based chips.  As CEO he has created a strong platform for growth and consistently created value for shareholders even in a challenging external environment.  On behalf of the Board, and the wider ARM team, thank you Warren for your passion, service and leadership.”
 
“The Board is delighted to have someone of Simon Segars’ experience and calibre within ARM to appoint to the role of CEO. Following an extensive review of candidates worldwide, Simon’s proven technology expertise and management skills across a range of senior executive roles made him an excellent CEO candidate and highly qualified to take the company forward.  The Board looks forward to continuing to work with Simon to build on the strong momentum that has been created over the past years.”

LG Electronics Becomes Lead Partner For ARM Cortex-A50 Family Of Products
And Next-Generation Mali GPUs

LG ELECTRONICS BECOMES LEAD PARTNER FOR ARM CORTEX-A50 FAMILY OF PRODUCTS AND NEXT-GENERATION MALI GPUS  

LG Electronics licenses ARM’s leading-edge CPU and GPU technologies, taking next-generation SoC solutions to new performance levels  

CAMBRIDGE – MAY 23, 2013 – ARM announced that LG Electronics has licensed the next generation of ARM® Cortex®-A50 series of central processing unit (CPU) solutions and the next generation of ARM Mali™ graphics processing units (GPUs). This agreement means that LG Electronics will have access to ARM’s highest-performing CPU and GPU solutions to create market-leading technology.  

This agreement builds on an already strong relationship between LG Electronics and ARM, as LG Electronics has previously used both Cortex processors and Mali GPUs in its system-on-chip (SoC) technology. This new agreement will enable LG Electronics to offer a wider range of high-performance SoCs. Launched in October, the Cortex-A50 family bridges the performance requirements of next-generation 32-bit and 64-bit applications. The next generation of the Mali GPUs licensed by LG Electronics will extend the performance capabilities beyond that offered by the Mali-T678 GPU, taking graphics and GPU computing to new levels.  

“The close interaction between the CPU and GPU becomes increasingly important as solutions transition between the 32-bit and 64-bit world,” said Bo-ik Sohn, senior vice president, LG Electronics. “Being able to implement Full Profile GPU Compute in conjunction with ARM big.LITTLE™ processing configurations will be a key driver to the overall performance and capabilities of our devices.”  

“Licensing the highest-performing IP from ARM for both CPU and GPU enables LG Electronics to expand the possibilities for end devices,” said Pete Hutton, executive vice president & general manager, Media Processing Division, ARM. “The capabilities of next-generation Cortex CPUs and Mali GPUs in concert will make innovative features, at market-leading levels of energy efficiency, a reality.”

ARM Announces Power-Optimized Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A15 Hard Macro

WHAT: ARM today announced the availability of a power-optimized dual-core hard macro implementation of the ARM® Cortex®-A15 processor. The ARM Cortex-A15 implementation provides exceptional power efficiency and is capable of delivering up to 10,000 DMIPS within a constrained mobile power envelope.

The ARM Cortex-A15 hard macro development is the result of the unique synergy arising from the combination of ARM Cortex processor IP, Artisan® physical IP, CoreLink™ systems IP and ARM’s integration capabilities, and utilizes TSMC’s 28nm HPM process. The complete low leakage implementation features integrated NEON™ SIMD technology and a floating point engine, and includes a 1MB level 2 cache to deliver an extremely competitive balance of performance and power. It is ideal for a wide range of power-sensitive handheld devices such as mobile phones and tablets. This dual-core hard macro was implemented using ARM Artisan 9-track libraries and incorporates ARM POP™ Technology for the Cortex-A15 on TSMC’s 28nm HPM process.

WHY: The Cortex-A15 processor delivers up to twice the performance of smartphones based on the Cortex-A9 processor, bringing a level of performance once only seen in laptops into low-power SoC solutions. The dual-core hard macro accelerates time to market for semiconductor companies wanting to benefit from the most advanced processor technology available.

This Cortex-A15 implementation is an ideal solution for designers of big.LITTLE™ processing systems as it can be paired with a dual- or quad-core Cortex-A7 processor, simplifying the design process and enabling a faster time to market.

This hard macro is ideal for designers looking for a cost-effective, highly power-efficient Cortex-A15 dual-core solution for mobile applications, and also devices such as single board computers that are used across a wide array of end-markets. It is an important addition to the ARM hard macro portfolio and will enable a wider array of partners seeking to leverage the outstanding capabilities of the Cortex-A15 processor.

WHERE: Please contact your local ARM Sales office: http://www.arm.com/about/offices/index.php
For further details on the ARM Hard Macro Portfolio, please visit: http://www.arm.com/products/processors/hard-macro-processors.php or check out a demo of this solution at the ARM Booth (931) at DAC, 3rd-5th June in Austin, Texas.
