ARM Ltd has launched the AMBA Compliance Program, which enables IP developers who have verified their IP against the standard AMBA compliance specification use the "AMBA Compliant" trademark. Through the verification of an AMBA Compliance Testbench (ACT) product, the developers can promote their intellectual property (IP) as possessing the reuse benefits of AMBA compliance.

The AMBA specification is an open standard that serves as a framework for SoC designs, providing the 'digital glue' that binds IP cores together. It is the backbone of ARM's design reuse strategy and has been adopted as a standard by more than 90 percent of ARM's partners and a large number of non-ARM IP providers.

According to ARM, the AMBA program serves two purposes: it ensures the interoperability of AMBA technology-based IP and encourages the development of AMBA compliant third-party solutions.

ARM has developed its own AMBA Compliance Testbench product that is now available for licensing and fully supports the compliance certification of IP and the participation of the AMBA Compliance Program. Synopsys Inc. is the first licensee to deliver an AMBA Compliance Tool.
