UK based tech design firm ARM and Microsoft have announced a new licensing agreement for the ARM architecture.
“Microsoft is an important member of the ARM ecosystem, and has been for many years,” said Mike Muller, chief technology officer at ARM. “With this architecture license, Microsoft will be at the forefront of applying and working with ARM technology in concert with a broad range of businesses addressing multiple application areas.”
“ARM is an important partner for Microsoft and we deliver multiple operating systems on the company’s architecture, most notably Windows Embedded and Windows Phone,” said KD Hallman, general manager, Microsoft. “With closer access to the ARM technology we will be able to enhance our research and development activities for ARM-based products.”
The exact details of the licensing agreement weren’t disclosed. ARM processors can be found in Samsung's new Wave smartphone as well a number of other devices such as the Nokia's N900 and N97 mini.
