ARM Acquires Advanced Display Technology from Cadence

Cadence and ARM Deepen Collaboration on High-End Mobile Device Development

San Jose, Calif. – September 03, 2013 – ARM, the leading semiconductor IP supplier (LSE: ARM; NASDAQ: ARMH) and Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that the companies have signed a definitive agreement for the sale and transfer of Cadence PANTA display controller cores to ARM. The agreement enhances the companies’ long-standing ecosystem collaboration and strengthens their technical alignment.

Cadence’s PANTA family of high-resolution display processor and scaling coprocessor IP cores was co-developed in conjunction with ARM and is targeted at advanced multimedia applications for high-end mobile devices with ultra-low power consumption.

“Display technology is critical to the mobile consumer’s user experience,” said Pete Hutton, executive vice president and general manager, Media Processing Division, ARM. “The addition of the PANTA family of display cores to the ARM product portfolio will help our ecosystem of partners get to market quickly with high-end displays that are fully integrated with ARM’s leading Mali™ graphics and video solutions and protected with ARM TrustZone® security.”

Martin Lund, senior vice president of Cadence’s IP group said, “ARM and Cadence work together closely on many levels, including IP integration, verification IP (VIP) for all ARM AMBA® protocols, and high-performance design solutions optimized for ARM cores. As a result, both companies offer more tightly integrated solutions to our mutual customers.”

MEDIA ALERT: ARM Launches MCU Engineer Accreditation

New Accreditation Enables Software Engineers to Officially Qualify in ARM® MCU technology

What: ARM has launched a new accreditation as part of its ARM Accredited Engineer (AAE) program. The new “ARM Accredited MCU Engineer” (AAME) accreditation will focus on software aspects of ARMv6 and ARMv7 Cortex-M architecture profiles and is aimed primarily at embedded Microcontroller Unit software engineers who are familiar with the ARM Cortex-M processor series and want to demonstrate their knowledge of ARM MCU technology.

Why: The AAE program is the only global exam-based accreditation program that offers engineers, trainers, consultants and students the opportunity to gain credible evidence of their knowledge of ARM technology. It offers individuals a way to validate their skills and differentiate themselves and gives employers a reliable benchmark that helps in recruiting new staff and developing existing staff.               

The new AAME accreditation complements the existing AAE accreditation (focused on Cortex-A and Cortex-R technology) to offer a professional qualification to the growing community of embedded software engineers using ARM Cortex-M based MCU devices in their products.               

At a time when the rapid growth of the “Internet of Things” (IoT) is driving ever wider adoption of Cortex-M based devices for their impressive combination of performance, cost, power, size and ease of use, the need for good quality engineers is imperative.               

Companies that place a strong emphasis on quality (especially those with ISO Certifications) may also wish to use the AAME accreditation as part of their formal learning and development process for engineers working on ARM MCU technology.

When: This new AAME accreditation is officially launched on 16th Sept 2013 and full details (including the official syllabus and learning resources) will be available on the AAE website (www.arm.com/aae) from this date. Additional learning resources will be rolled out on the website as they become available over the following months and ARM will be working with our growing global network of Accreditation Training Partners to make high quality training courses available around the world.
 
The ARM University Program is also working with universities around the world to support learning on ARM Cortex-M based MCU devices. Please see www.arm.com/university to find out more.
 
Where: The AAE program is a global program administered by ARM’s delivery partner, Prometric, who operate a network of 10,000 test centers in over 160 countries around the world. Candidates will be able to attend any of Prometric’s Authorized Testing Centers in order to take their tests.Exam registration/scheduling for this accreditation will go live on the Prometric website (www.prometric.com/arm) on the launch date, so candidates will be able to start scheduling their tests immediately.
 
For more information on the ARM Accredited Engineer Program and how you or your organization can participate please see www.arm.com/aae or email certification@arm.com
