A New Way to Innovate Faster, Better and Smarter – Arm Flexible Access Program



From sensors to supercomputers, the convergence of 5G, IoT, and AI is driving multiple industries to transform. We see this transformation in retail, automotive, factories, homes, and our cities. In the market of rapid change, it’s common that the product requirements undergo significant modifications several times over the course of the development of the product, resulting in constant changes to the IP needs.

Arm’s silicon partners shipped a total of 25 billion Arm-based chips in 2020, additionally, more than one billion GPUs reported shipped in 2020, which makes Arm the global leader in the development of licensable compute technology. To help our customers innovate, we launched Arm Flexible Access to provide partners to more than 75% of Arm’s IP portfolio. Arm Flexible Access program provides up-front, low-cost access to a wide range of Arm IP, interconnect, security blocks, support, tools, and training, which can empower your SoC design teams to experiment, evaluate and undertake projects flexibly and more cheaply. To support early stage silicon startup with limited funding, Arm has created another program- Arm Flexible Access for Startups, offering no-cost access to IP, tools and training and backing with support. To help Arm ecosystem to continue to unleash the potential of IoT market, Arm expands the endpoint AI capabilities of the Arm Flexible Access portfolio with the inclusion of the Arm Cortex-M55 and Ethos-U55 announced in 2020.

This webinar will help you gain a thorough understanding of these two programs and help you understand why more than 100 partners including PixArt Imaging, Hailo, FARADAY and others have signed up for Arm Flexible Access in its first year and many products have been in mass production. You will also learn how these programs can help you greatly reduce the turn-around time for new evaluations and optimize product development schedules.

Topics covered in this webinar include:

• Arm Flexible Access Program
• Arm Flexible Access for Startups Program
• AFA Strategic Partnership
