Semiconductor designer Arm has revealed its plans for a new site in Bristol.

The firm, whose processors power a range of consumer technology used by 70 per cent of the world's population, says it wants to capitalise on the graduate talent leaving The University of Bristol, which "is known for its hardware design and verification-related courses."

Bristol-based engineering roles cover Arm’s Cortex-A CPUs, System IP, Central Technology and Solutions Engineering.

CPU engineers will work with Arm’s HQ in Cambridge on the Cortex-A CPUs, targeting the infrastructure, automotive and consumer technology markets.

System IP engineers will be working on the delivery of Arm’s interconnect and SMMU technologies to automotive, consumer tech, infrastructure and IoT markets. This will also involve the development of echArm’s functional safety features which are vital components of automotive and IoT applications.

The Central Technology Solutions team will focus on analysing the performance and power of these Arm’s future IP designs, from early concept to deployment in silicon.

And Arm’s new Solutions Engineering team will focus on developing subsystems and test chip silicon based on Arm’s Total Compute Solutions.

Arm, which has sites in Cambridge, Manchester and Sheffield and is also opening a new site in Oslo, is holding a virtual discovery day on May 22 for engineers interested in joining the company.


Peter Davison is deputy editor of The Business Magazine. He has spent his life in journalism – doing work experience in newsrooms in and around Bristol while still at school, and landing his first job on a local newspaper aged 19. By 28 he was the youngest newspaper editor in the country.

An early advocate of online news, he spent the first years of the 2000s telling his bosses that the internet posed both the biggest opportunity and greatest threat to the newspaper industry and the art of journalism. He was right on both counts.

Since 2006 he has enjoyed a career as a freelance journalist. He lives in rural Wiltshire with one wife, two children, and three cats.
