Cambridge Consultants becomes Arm Approved Design Partner
Two leaders in the region’s technology cluster have been united after Cambridge Consultants was appointed an Arm Approved Design Partner.
It means Cambridge Consultants’ expertise is available to the entire device supply chain, from semiconductor companies to product manufacturers.
The aim is to help companies leverage Arm IP to develop their products and services.
Jez Stark, head of semiconductor srvices at Science Park-based Cambridge Consultants, said: “We are proud to join Arm’s group of carefully selected Approved Design Partners.
“We’re looking forward to building close partnerships in the Arm ecosystem and applying our expertise and experience across diverse markets to develop the groundbreaking technologies and platforms of tomorrow.”
While generic chips are appropriate for many applications, the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) means a rise in niche requirements that are hard to satisfy in an low cost, power efficient way with off-the-shelf technology.
Cambridge Consultants says its experience across IP, silicon and product development, along with its diverse market experience, will help it provide tailored services for everyone from tier one semiconductor companies, to world leading product brands using Arm architecture.
Ciaran Dunne, vice president and general manager, partner enablement at Fulbourn Road-based Arm, said: “The Arm Approved Design Partner program was designed to bring together industry leaders to accelerate custom SoC designs based on the Arm IP. Adding Cambridge Consultants as a member not only strengthens our long-term relationship, but further enables our mutual partners’ success by offering the highest-quality engineering expertise and services for the development of Arm-based designs.”
