Qualcomm poised to swoop if $40bn Nvidia-Arm deal crumbles

US chipmaker Qualcomm has announced it is willing to invest in semiconductor designer Arm, in the event thelatter’s $40 billion takeover deal with Nvidia falls through.

Unlike Nvidia, which is attempting to purchase Arm outright, Qualcomm has said it would club together with a consortium of industry players to purchase a stake in Arm, if current owner SoftBank is willing to float the British firm.
