Huawei to licence ARMv8 architecture

Thursday 5 September 2013 | 09:56 CET | News
Huawei has signed an agreement with the UK-based ARM to licence the ARMv8 architecture. Under the agreement, Huawei can use the ARMv8 architecture to design its own microprocessor cores. This agreement strengthens the nine-year collaboration between Huawei and ARM which started in 2004, and which included the announcement of Huawei as a lead partner for the ARMv8 architecture-based Cortex-A57 processor late last year. The value of the agreement has not been disclosed, but Huawei's investment in the ARM ecosystem since 2004 runs to hundreds of millions of US dollars.
