TAIPEI ARM Holdings, a British chip designer controlled by Japan's SoftBank Group, will launch a joint venture in China "within months" to help companies there develop semiconductor technologies, including products that could have security uses, an executive told the Nikkei Asian Review.

"The intent is for that joint venture to develop products for the Chinese market for China partners, and specifically around the areas of technology that a Western company might not be able to do," Rene Haas, president of ARM's intellectual property products group, said in an interview on May 29.
