Arm, DARPA ink access framework agreement


Arm has inked a three-year partnership agreement with the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), establishing an access framework to all commercially available Arm technology.

The new agreement will enable the research community that supports DARPA’s programs to take advantage of Arm’s IP, tools and support, the company said in a statement.

Over 170 billion Arm-based chips have shipped to date, says Arm.

“DARPA’s programs within the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) focus on the most advanced challenges in microelectronics; equipping our community with best in class technologies is essential not only for break-through scientific and engineering advances, but also for improved transition into military and commercial applications,” stated Serge Leef, who leads design automation and secure hardware programs in MTO.
