  • Making them easy to plug into new designs ARM core became keystones to most SoC designs
    • Known for their high code density with relatively small embedded memory needs, ARM IP was inherently low cost and low power
      • Proving MPU performance at MCU cost and power needs
    • Without ARM, it is doubtful that the fabless industry would have ever been competitive again IDM proprietary IP
