It’s very much a case of chips with everything at ARM, the British semiconductor IP company. It patents and licenses chip technology to manufacturing giants that end up powering everything from our smartphones and household appliances to, more recently, our cars.
Having been around for 25 years, ARM is very much a British tech success story, with more than 75 billion ARM-based chips shipped featuring its technology. Though the company technically doesn’t ‘make’ anything, its technology forms the ‘brain’ of many of our familiar, branded electrical goods. It’s a hidden industrial giant if you like—its processors are present in 95% of all mobile phones worldwide.
ARM makes its money through licensing and royalties and still makes revenue from chips developed 25 years ago (it receives a small royalty on every chip sold) and there are not many tech businesses where you can say that.
