China's Huaxintong Semi Licenses ARMv8-A for Servers

ARM has licensed its ARM v8-A architecture to Huaxintong Semiconductor Technology to accelerate advanced server chipset technologies in the rapidly expanding Chinese server market.

ARM said this multiyear license will enable Chinese companies to deliver ARM-based server technologies in their home market, enabling large scale deployment of the most efficient server solutions available.

Huaxintong Semiconductor Technology is a joint venture between China’s Guizhou province and a subsidiary of Qualcomm. The venture is registered in Guizhou province, which is already home to a data center cluster of more than 2.5 million servers for companies including China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicorn.

“China is facing a mountain of data flowing through its data centers and finding solutions that are cost effective and efficient is a key priority,” said Pete Hutton, executive vice president and president of products groups, ARM. “Huaxintong Semiconductor Technology is creating a blueprint for new server systems and engaging with them is opening up exciting new opportunities for ARM-based servers. This is a chance to reinvent the economics and performance of hyperscale data centers and enables China to architect its own server chips based on ARM technologies for its domestic market and for the rest of the world.”
