Would you like to play a key role in defining the solution growth story in Arm?


Arm’s Solution Engineering team is very thrilled to connect with SoC Design engineers in southwest of England. New team members in Bristol will join hands with other RTL design and verification engineers spread across UK, US, France and Hungary to build best in class client (For e.g. premium mobile) compute subsystems, SoCs/testchips.

Arm is establishing a team to develop best-in-class silicon demonstrators based on Arm’s IP compute sub-system solutions targeting premium mobile, infrastructure and automotive markets. Using the latest nodes (e.g. 3nm) and new SoC 3D packaging developments, Arm’s ambition is to demonstrate industry best-in-class performance by architecting, designing, implementing, and fabricating cutting edge silicon test chips. This is an exciting and unique initiative, where we are bringing in innovative talent and expertise from across the semiconductor industry to drive how the next generation of leading compute on Arm devices are built across the industry, opening up significant potential for the future.
