Re: Time for keeping homegrown tech at home

By which logic no other country should risk using ARM.

Your missing the point.

We readily and happily use hardware and software that’s under the control of foreign companies, intel, AMD , Qualcomm etc etc. we should have a domestic vendor who competes with those giants ARM is an equivalent. BT as a national carrier used to have the strategic role of ensuring domestic comms during a nuclear war (not to everyone but select locations, google “uk ECN”).

Every top order country has at least 1 large domestic comms provider, some have multiple.

ARM is HQ’d in the uk and has a UK history.

ARM don’t make chips, they sell chip designs for others to amend and implement.

If we keep a UK interest in ARM then we can be sure to trust their designs, or quietly ask them to put back doors in place to hack those systems.
