ARM partners with Cadence to improve mobile device development

Infotech Lead America: ARM, a provider of semiconductor IP, has formed partnership with Cadence Design Systems to sell and transfer Cadence PANTA display controller cores to ARM.

The agreement enhances the companies’ long-standing ecosystem collaboration and strengthens their technical alignment.

The addition of PANTA family of display cores to the ARM product portfolio provides ARM ecosystem partners with high-end displays that are fully integrated with ARM’s leading Mali graphics and video solutions and protected with ARM TrustZone security, the company said.

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

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.”

ARM acquires Internet of things tech provider Sensinode

ARM recently acquired Sensinode, a provider of software technology for the Internet of things (IoT).  The privately-held Sensinode has contributed to the IETF, ZigBee IP, ETSI and OMA standardization efforts. Sensinode was also involved in the creation of 6LoWPAN and CoAP standards for low cost low power devices, ARM said.
