1. Nvidia Announces Plan To Buy Arm For $40B

A major provider of silicon designs for IoT processors is set to gain a new owner with Arm’s planned $40 billion sale to GPU maker Nvidia — a deal announced in September that will likely have major consequences for the semiconductor industry and the IoT market. Since 2016, Arm has been owned by Japan-based SoftBank Group, which acquired the British chip designer for $32 billion with the hope of growing its influence in the IoT market. Nvidia has been ramping up its investments in silicon products and systems for IoT and edge computing applications, with platforms like EGX and processors like the Jetson Xavier NX. However, the future is up in the air for Arm’s IoT Services Group, which consists of Treasure Data for data analytics; Pelion for device management; and Kigen for eSIM management. For now, Arm turned Pelion into an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary of the company. Meanwhile, the Stacey on IoT newsletter reported that Arm has hired Citibank for a potential sale of Treasure Data while no such actions have been taken for Kigen.
