Spreadtrum Selects ARM Artisan Physical IP And POP IP For 28nm SoC Development

ARM and Spreadtrum, a leading fabless semiconductor provider in China, today announced a sweeping license agreement providing Spreadtrum with the full range of ARM® Artisan® physical IP, including POP™ IP, for the broad range of IC foundry and process varieties of 28nm that ARM supports to deliver the most flexible manufacturing options. The license agreement gives Spreadtrum access to ARM Artisan standard cells, next-generation memory compilers and POP IP for ARM Cortex® processors and Mali™ GPUs. ARM Artisan physical IP and POP IP will help provide the foundation to accelerate Spreadtrum’s development of their low-power mobile phone SoCs.

By providing comprehensive physical IP platforms for 28nm process technology, ARM supports customers targeting a wide range of applications including mobile phone, enterprise, tablet, DTV, wireless and consumer. “Selecting ARM Artisan physical IP and POP IP for our SoC designs targeting 28nm process technologies was a natural extension of our successful collaboration on 40nm,” said Dr. Leo Li, chairman and CEO of Spreadtrum. "It is great to know that no matter which foundry or process we select for our future 28nm SoC development, Spreadtrum can have the confidence of using Artisan physical IP and POP IP for the fastest time-to-market.”
