Intel and ARM have been competitors in the chip making industry for a long time and now the two companies have signed a deal which will see Intel make ARM chips at its Intel Foundries.
Apple uses ARM chips in its iPhones, these are produced by companies like TSMC for Apple and the new deal means that Intel could be building these iPhone processors for Apple in the future.
Today, we are furthering these ecosystem efforts with new foundational IP that our customers can use. Our 10 nm design platform for foundry customers will now offer access to ARM® Artisan® physical IP, including POP™ IP, based on the most advanced ARM cores and Cortex series processors. Optimizing this technology for Intel’s 10 nm process means that foundry customers can take advantage of the IP to achieve best-in-class PPA (power, performance, area) for power-efficient, high-performance implementations of their designs for mobile, IoT and other consumer applications.
Intel have already agreed a deal with LG who will use Intel’s foundries to produce 10 nanometer processors for LG. You can find out more details about the deal between ARM and Intel at the link below.
