Arm Holdings Plc, a renowned designer of computer chips, has announced its foray into the AI (Artificial Intelligence) chip market.

Despite SoftBank’s majority stake in the company, Arm is determined to chart its course in AI chip development.

According to reports from Nikkei Asia, Arm has established a dedicated AI chip unit to spearhead its efforts in this domain.

The company aims to unveil its first AI chip prototype in early spring 2025, with plans for mass production by the second half of the year through partnerships with leading foundry companies such as Sam Cat and TSMC.

To fund its initial development costs, Arm is reportedly prepared to invest ¥100 billion (US$642 million), with additional financial support from SoftBank.

This move underscores Arm’s commitment to driving innovation in the AI chip sector and underscores its ambition to carve out a significant market share.

While Arm has a strong track record in providing circuit architecture for processors used in smartphones and GPUs, venturing into AI chip design represents a new frontier for the company.

By developing its AI chips, Arm aims to diversify its revenue streams beyond royalties, which it currently earns from chip designs.

SoftBank’s Chief Economic Advisor, M. Son, has been a driving force behind this strategic shift, envisioning an ‘AI revolution’ that transcends traditional boundaries in industries such as data centers and robotics.

Son believes that the convergence of AI, semiconductor, and robotics technologies will fuel unprecedented innovation across various sectors.

Looking ahead, SoftBank plans to leverage its global data center infrastructure to support the deployment of Arm’s AI chips.

Son’s vision also extends to renewable energy sources, with plans to power data centers using wind and solar energy, further underlining SoftBank’s commitment to sustainability.

While Arm’s ambitions in the AI chip market are bold, questions remain about how existing customers will respond to this move.

It remains to be seen whether Arm will continue to license its designs to existing customers or reserve them exclusively for its AI chip lineup.

As Arm gears up for its entry into the AI chip market, it is poised to disrupt the status quo and challenge established players such as AWSI and Microsoft.
