Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited and ARM have announced that they had signed a comprehensive license agreement for the Cortex-A15 processor, Mali graphics and CoreLink systems intellectual property (IP). Thanks to the new IP, Fujitsu will be able to design system-on-chip products featuring code-named Eagle processor core that ARM positions for everything from smartphone to server.

The agreement will enhance and deepen the companies' partnership, and Fujitsu Semiconductor will provide its customers with cutting-edge ARM technology at an early stage as it develops new products. The combination of compatible and scalable low-power processor IP, including the recently launched Cortex-A15 processor, graphics and fabric IP, will enable Fujitsu Semiconductor to continuously provide its customers with complete, full function SoC platforms featuring ARM technology.

"Fujitsu Semiconductor is working to enhance its product appeal and boost its IP lineup. One of the major ways in which we are doing this is with this comprehensive license agreement we have signed with ARM. This will allow our customers to select the ARM technology most suited for their application, and use a platform that combines it with other IP provided by us. These platforms will use our proven design and authentication technology," said Haruyoshi Yagi, corporate senior vice president of Fujitsu Semiconductor.

The two companies have been collaborating for more than a decade. The new agreement is targeted to further deepen the relationship between ARM and Fujitsu. For example, Fujitsu Semiconductor plans to share product roadmap with ARM in order to "closely collaborate in the development of future ARM technologies", from the specification setting stage and up.

"We are already moving ahead with the provision of IP to ASIC customers and the development of our ASSP, which are scheduled to be rolled out sequentially in the second half of 2011," added Mr. Yagi.
