Silicon intelligence provider Arm is likely to commute the licensing fee method, as it has been changing the method from citing the number of chips being out to the number of mobile phones that have gone from the industry. To put the revenue upswing.
On quoting this, two notable US-based foreign investors highlighted in their recent research operations that the situation has narrowed down the aftermath on MediaTek, which enables a positive propulsion for the Android ecosystem to harvest the RISC-V CPUs. Thereupon, a foreign investor manages a “neutral ” investment culminating for MediaTek, in a meantime maintaining the track for the “outperform” investment rating for Andes”.
In addition to the above argument, Another US-based foreign investor said that the situation brings great attention yet is of concern to investors. Even, the foreign capital believes that a charge on MediaTek will be not above the stream, which can be considered as a minimal impact.
But it makes advantage of Andes’ premium space on the RISC-V architecture. Although MediaTek depends heavily on the authorization of Arm for mobile phone CPUs and GPUs, and also the related networking chips. The same as many IC design factories located around the globe.
The process of making it so cozy will happen to raise once Arm confirms to swap the charging method, the new method will be imposed after it passes to the downstream mobile phone manufacturers. The fee of bringing the new licensing fee into account will accumulate for % to 2% of the total cost of chip production, and it is not easy to feel that it is assigned to consumers.
The slight increase in licensing fees by Arm will make the manufacturers have a more keen attention to the application of the open RISC-V architecture. RISC-V is currently not developed as much in the industry but maybe in the future, it would make even the large cloud computing providers including Amazon, Google, and Microsoft will pay more attention to the development of RISC-V architecture chips because of the increase in costs.
