    Job Description

    Modern chip designs incorporate a wide range of Arm components to construct a full system, each part having an impact on the overall system performance. Whether it is a car engine monitor, a VR headset or a network server, it is critical that all Arm components perform well when combined into systems. Central Technologies Group (CTG) at Arm drives the development of IP across the company. Even before a new product is conceived, system models are constructed to examine the advantages of potential new architectural features.
