dgs: An informed source just told me: 'The "on-site participation by personnel from Advanced RISC Machines Limited" was mainly their lawyers slowly becoming convinced ARM couldn't sue them, so had to get into bed with them.'

It looks very much to me like it was the same thing that happened to NEC - NEC make a nice synthesisable clone, ARM go "oh s***" and realise that sueing a company the size of NEC isn't going to be possible, so buys it off them instead.
