Semiconductor

Supporting the sector in times of fast pace and high stakes technology evolution

We have supported ARM since 2015, and have expanded our relationships to include many of the industry leading organisations and their advisers. As the sector continues to undergo significant transformation, strategic patent intelligence will be essential to both maximising value and minimising risk.

The main strategic benefits of Cipher for ARM are the accuracy of the classifiers and the ability to continue to run those classifiers over time. Having an empirical way of pointing to why we file what we do, makes the case for the budget we need.
