ARM Cambridge

Superchip architect and Internet of Things pioneer ARM Holdings had a market cap of around $21bn when it was acquired by Japanese group SoftBank for $31bn in 2016. 

The company plans to double headcount at its expanded Cambridge HQ. Over 85 billion systems-on-chip have been shipped to date based on ARM’s technology. 

In an exciting recent development, ARM is partnering scientists at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington to develop brain-implantable chips that could combat a raft of debilitating neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and even paralysis.
