  • Qualcomm says it’s willing to team up with a consortium of rivals to buy Arm.
  • Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon reckons a consortium would help keep Arm independent.
  • Intel also suggested this idea back in February.

Nvidia called off its $40 billion deal to buy Arm earlier this year, citing regulatory hurdles. However, Arm is still up for grabs and Qualcomm has proposed a rather interesting solution.

Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon told the Financial Times that the company was interested in investing in Arm. However, Amon said Qualcomm was even willing to team up with its rivals to buy the Softbank-owned chip designer outright.
