ARM commands 78 percent of CPU core market

Posted on Thursday, May 10 2012 @ 16:52:14 CEST by

EE Times reports shipments of merchant CPU cores hit over 10 billion units last year, up 25 percent over 2010, with ARM taking a marketshare of 78 percent. Full details over here.
ARM’s success casts a shadow on its archrival, MIPS Technologies. MIPS recently said it may sell some of its patents, and is reportedly seeking an acquisition partner.

For its part, ARM collected royalties on 7.9 billion chips in 2011 at an average rate of about 4.6 cents per chip, down from 4.8 percent in the prior year, said the report. ARM’s royalties are up 19 percent on a compound basis from 2007-2011 while overall semiconductor industry revenues grew just four percent in the same period.

By contrast, MIPS Technologies reported royalties on 656 million chips in 2011 at a rate of about seven cents per chip. It took third place in the market at six percent behind the ARC cores of Synopsys at 10 percent, the report said.
