Amazon's potential involvement in the IPO, which has not previously been reported, underscores Arm's significance in cloud computing.
Amazon Web Services, the internet giant's cloud business, makes its own processing chip called Graviton, using Arm's design.
Arm has been in talks with about 10 technology companies, including Intel (INTC.O), Alphabet (GOOGL.O) and Nvidia (NVDA.O), about an investment ahead of its IPO, Reuters has reported.
