In addition to general support of the ARM RISC architecture, each of these new offices offers consulting services, applications software, development tools, maintenance, and training to meet the local needs of ARM partners and end users. The Austin and Maidenhead offices also provide Research and Development facilities to support a variety of key product development programs. The Seoul office is working closely with ARM's key Korean semiconductor partners, including Samsung and LG Semicon, to provide local design services support.
ARM restructured its organization in October to focus on markets and applications, with the creation of six new business units: licensing; consulting; applications software; design tools; EDA; and support, maintenance, and training. The regional resources are organized by people who focus on three primary market segments--portable, consumer multimedia, and embedded--as well as a fourth area of Partner Management and Support to further complement the product offering. ARM is actively recruiting hardware/software design, management, and marketing personnel to accelerate a variety of existing and planned development programs in these regions.
