LONDON – The UK government announced on Tuesday that it wanted a full investigation Of Nivia He took control of the Cambridge Chip Designer logo, which is widely regarded as a jewel in the crown of British technology.
Nadin Doris, Digital and Cultural Writer Has ordered a phase 2 scan. In Nvidi’s $ 40 billion bid for debugging. The investigation – which will be conducted by the Competition and Market Authority over the next 24 weeks – will investigate anti-trust issues and national security issues related to the agreement. He said he had CMA. Serious concern over the deal After completing the first “Level 1” examination.
The move is being investigated by regulators around the world, chip companies said in August The deal cannot be finalized now Before the first deadline of March 2022.
A spokesman for NVD told CNBC on Tuesday: “We plan to address the CMA’s initial concerns about the competition and we will continue to work with the UK government to address those concerns.”
He added: “The Stage 2 process will enable us to show that the transaction can accelerate the debugging process and increase competition and innovation, even in the UK.”
Corm came out in 1990 with a former computer company called Akor Computer. The company’s energy-saving chip architecture is used in 95% of the world’s smartphones and 95% of chips made in China.
The organization, Purchased by Japan SoftBank A.D. In 2016, £ 24 billion ($ 32 billion) will be licensed to more than 500 companies that will use their chip designs to make their own chips.
Critics fear the merger could limit access to debug “neutral” chip designs and lead to higher prices, less choice and less innovation in the semiconductor industry. But NVD argues that the deal will be more innovative and will benefit from the increased investment.
When the deal was announced in September 2020, NVD CEO Jenson Huang said: “This partnership is of great benefit to both companies, our customers and the industry.”
Last month, the EU’s executive body launched its own probe into the deal, which is being investigated by regulators in the United States and China.
“Although ARM and Nvidi are not directly competing, ARM is an important input in products that compete with Nvidia, for example in data centers, automotive and Internet of Things,” said Margrette Vestager, CEO of the European Commission.
“Our analysis shows that the acquisition of Armor by Nvidia could result in limited or limited Arm’s IP access, which has distorted effects in many markets where semiconductors are used,” she added.
