ARM will set up its new CPU Design Center in the Hsinchu Science Park, Hsinchu, Taiwan.
This is ARM’s first CPU Design Center in Asia.
The new center will open at the end of 2014 and will create skilled microprocessor design opportunities for the technical community in the region.
The new design center will focus on the design, verification and delivery of the ARM Cortex-M processor series targeted at the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables and embedded applications markets.
The company said it selected Taiwan because of its close proximity to key semiconductor and ecosystem partners and local engineering talent.
Simon Segars, chief executive officer of ARM, said: “The new design center will have a particular focus on the development of ARM Cortex-M processors which are the market-leading design choice for IoT products.”
