According to the report, ARM closed its cutting-edge research and development facility, ARM Research Institute, last year.Of all 150 engineers, only half get the chance to change jobs internally.A former ARM engineer told the Financial Times that the main reason the company chose to close the ARM research institute was to reduce investment in "blue sky research", concentrate superior resources and develop products that can see returns in the short term. This practice has also caused a lot of internal opposition, dissenting employees think it is too short-sighted.

According to people familiar with the matter, ARM Research Institute has not completely given up "Blue Sky Research" and will link the company's future business development to achieve closer ties. People familiar with the matter added that ARM will further explore a number of areas over the next 10 years.
