In September last year, NVIDIA announced that it would spend $40 billion to acquire arm company, which is one of the most important IP licensing companies in the world. CPU processor based on arm is almost the only choice for smart phones and tablet chips.
NVIDIA's acquisition of arm also requires antitrust approval from many countries around the world,Not long ago, NVIDIA CEO Huang Renxun said he was confident that he would pass the review in the UK, China and other countries and regions,He said that the primary concern of regulators is whether the acquisition hinders or promotes competition, while NVIDIA and arm complement each other and will burst out more innovation when they come together.
For this acquisition, Simon segars, CEO of arm, also made a statement at the global digital summit 2021 a few days ago, believing that this acquisition can combine NVIDIA's advantages in GPU and arm's advantages in CPU to develop new AI chips.
Simon segars also gave a positive answer to the key question of whether arm can remain neutral after its acquisition,It emphasizes that arm will not be distinguished in IP authorization in the world, and anyone who wants to use it can use it.
Not long ago, arm released the most revolutionary armv9 instruction set in the past decade, which comprehensively improved the performance. The official stressed that arm is not only originated from American IP, but also from non American IP.After a comprehensive review, arm determined that its armv9 architecture is not subject to the US export administration regulations (ear).
Arm has informed the relevant departments of the US government of this, and we will continue to abide by the guidelines of the US Department of Commerce for Huawei and its subsidiary Hisilicon.
