Advanced Risc Machines

Arm Holdings is a British semiconductor and software design company with global operations. The company specializes in the development of ARM (Advanced RISC Machine) processors and related technologies, which are integral to a wide range of electronic devices, from smartphones to supercomputers. Notably, Arm does not manufacture chips but licenses its intellectual property to other companies, who then incorporate Arm's designs into their products. The company is headquartered in Cambridge, England, and its shares are listed on the Nasdaq.

The Designs

Arm Holdings operates primarily as a semiconductor and software design company, specializing in creating architectures and licenses for ARM (Advanced RISC Machine) processors. Unlike other semiconductor companies, Arm does not manufacture its own chips; instead, it develops and licenses its processor designs and related technologies to other firms. These licensees, ranging from mobile device manufacturers to automotive companies, integrate Arm's designs into their products and rely on them for the functionality of the end product. Additionally, the company offers software tools, systems-on-chips (SoCs), and platforms that are instrumental in sectors like Internet of Things, consumer electronics, and cloud computing.

Where the Products are Used

Processors based on Arms designs are used in just about every modern product needing computational power. This means that the company’s designs can be found in everything from cars, smartwatches, smartphones, personal computers, servers, and everything in between. Arm's processors also play a crucial role in infrastructure and networking equipment and are increasingly utilized in cloud computing and data centers.

Arm’s IPO

Arm’s IPO in 2023 was one of the most talked about IPO’s in 2023. The company has been owned by SoftBank since 2016, and in 2020 Nvidia attempted to purchase the company. This was rebutted due to national security concerns from the UK government, as well as several competitional concerns from large American tech companies.

Arm was initially founded with backing from Apple, the company’s first products, the massive challenges faced during the early days, as well as setting the stage for their IPO in 2023.
