Intel to produce 10nm ARM chip designs

ARM and Intel Custom Foundry this week at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco an agreement to accelerate the development and implementation of ARM SoCs on Intel’s 10nm process. In their joint press releases, Intel and ARM said that the agreement will enable Intel Custom Foundry to use its upcoming 10nm FinFET platform for fabricating chip designs based on ARM’s Artisan Physical IP.

“The initial POP IP will be for two future advanced ARM Cortex-A processor cores designed for mobile computing applications in either ARM big.LITTLE or stand-alone configurations,” according to ARM’s press release. Intel’s release says that LG will be using the process to “produce a world-class mobile platform based on Intel Custom Foundry’s 10nm design platform.”

The Intel-ARM partnership could provide new foundry options for chipmakers like Qualcomm — and potentially Apple — beyond current industry bigwigs Samsung and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC).

Chips based on Intel’s 10nm process are expected at some point in 2017.
