Microsoft signs closer access to ARM IP
One to note – Microsoft has signed a new licensing agreement for the ARM architecture, to get closer access to ARM IP.
Microsoft and ARM have worked together since 1997, on embedded, consumer and mobile devices, but the new agreement is intended to “extend the collaborative relationship between the two companies”.
“Microsoft is an important member of the ARM ecosystem, and has been for many years,” says Mike Muller, CTO ARM. “With this architecture license, Microsoft will be at the forefront of applying and working with ARM technology in concert with a broad range of businesses addressing multiple application areas.”
“ARM is an important partner for Microsoft and we deliver multiple operating systems on the company’s architecture, most notably Windows Embedded and Windows Phone,” said KD Hallman, general manager, Microsoft. “With closer access to the ARM technology we will be able to enhance our research and development activities for ARM-based products.”
Details of the agreement remain confidential, according to the announcement.
