  • Arm Holdings launches Arm Kleidi, accelerating AI with new libraries, CPUs, and GPUs.

Arm Holdings Plc ARM shares are trading lower on Wednesday.

The company launched Arm Kleidi, a broad software and software community engagement program for accelerating AI. 

The inaugural offering is Arm Kleidi libraries for leading AI frameworks, facilitating access to Arm CPU’s AI capabilities, which currently handle the majority of AI inference tasks globally from cloud to edge, Arm Holdings said in a statement in its website.

Kleidi Libraries incorporate KleidiAI for all AI tasks and KleidiCV for top-notch computer vision (CV) tasks on Arm CPUs across different levels.

“KleidiAI is our solution to the explosion in device types, neural networks and inference engines,” Arm Holdings said. “KleidiCV accelerates CV pipelines that are used for many camera use cases.”

Arm Holdings introduced Arm Compute Subsystems (CSS) for Client, as per a separate press release, merging Armv9 advantages with verified implementations of new Arm CPUs and GPUs on 3nm process nodes.

Arm Holdings also launched the second-generation family of GPUs that are built on our 5th Gen GPU architecture and form a vital component in the Arm Compute Subsystems (CSS) for Client platform. The development is mainly meant for a variety of consumer devices, from flagship smartphones and premium mobile handsets through to smartwatches and entry-level mobile devices, the company said.

Arm Holdings’ largest market remains smartphones, where the company provides intellectual property to competitors like Apple Inc. AAPL and Android chip suppliers such as QUALCOMM Incorporated  QCOM, Reuters reported.

Previously, Arm primarily provided its technology as specifications or abstract designs, requiring chip companies to transform them into physical chip blueprints, a complex task involving arranging billions of transistors.

With the new products, Arm collaborated with Samsung Electronics Co SSNGY SSNLF and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd. TSM to deliver manufacturing-ready physical design blueprints.

Price Action: ARM shares are trading lower by 2.13% to $122.28 at last check Wednesday.
