Processor technology licensor ARM Ltd is extending its reach in China with an office in Beijing that it says is intended to support the capital's fast-growing pack of design houses, its long-established base of universities and research groups, as well as OEMs and new foundries.

"Beijing is widely acknowledged as one of the biggest semiconductor and IT centers in China. We see this office opening as a significant step in increasing our commitment to the China market," said Tudor Brown, chief operating officer of ARM, in a statement Sept. 7. "ARM partners have shipped more than one billion ARM processors in the past year, and we see China as a key market for further success with the ARM architecture over the next few years."

ARM also has an office in Shanghai, which it opened in 2002.

The company also listed a handful of recent deals in China, including licenses for the ARM Jazelle Enabling Technology Kit signed by Beijing-based ZRRT Communications Technology Co., CoreTek Systems Inc. and Hopen Software Engineering Corp. ARM also licensed its ARM926EJ microprocessor and associated Embedded Trace Macrocell on-chip debug peripheral to foundry Shanghai Manufacturing International Corp.

SMIC has already licensed two other ARM cores, the ARM7TDMI processor and the ARM922T processor. SMIC will have silicon-proven devices using the ARM926EJ processor in its 0.13-micron process by the first quarter of 2005, ARM said.
