Silicon and software that fits
From medical sensors to autonomous cars, connected devices come in all shapes and sizes. The ARM partnership has optimized solutions to meet your needs, whatever the application.
Collaboration for success
Scaling to billions of connected devices means that technology and people must work together. Whether it is cloud software or connected sensors, the ARM ecosystem has the solutions you need.
Building on a foundation of trust
The need to secure data is critical as our world becomes increasing digitized. ARM TrustZone™ technology is helping maintain data privacy and security, from sensor to server.
Right size, right place compute
Efficient processing not only means streamlined devices and longer battery life, it means reducing latency, network traffic and server loads by enabling processing closer to the data.
Invisible computing is here
Scalable, energy-efficient processing is creating new possibilities
Billions of ARM embedded processors are already invisibly enabling smarter, more efficient products.
ARM Cortex-M is the world's leading 32-bit microcontroller architecture. It is extending Internet connectivity to the tiniest devices, and continually pushing the boundaries of the intelligence available per a given area and given power budget. Today, Cortex-M based chips enable the majority of connectivity standards and power everything from your microwave to automated hand dryers. These microcontrollers start as small as 2mm x 2mm, and at under $1.
In addition, ARM Cortex-M processors are built in to custom SoCs – devices tailored for a particular IoT application. ARM offers an accelerated route to custom silicon success - find out more.
High performance ARM Cortex-A, Mali GPUs and computer vision technology are bringing enhanced intelligence to IoT applications, meeting the demands of analytics, learning, VR and AR applications in robotics, machine vision and IoT gateways.
ARM embedded processors are bringing functionality to existing products and creating entirely new ones for consumers, enterprises, agriculture and infrastructure. Collectively, these embedded technologies are the foundation of the Internet of Things (IoT).
Technology that crosses industries and markets: A Smart City's needs
Today, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. That number is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. It is more important than ever that we conserve our resources and make living in a city as comfortable as possible.
In general, Smart City implementations reduce costs and improve citizen welfare. Globally, governments are actively deploying smart city concepts and driving new products and solutions.
Where does ARM fit into smart cities? ARM provides the power-efficient processing technology that enables sensing, actuation, connectivity and distributed decision making. Security foundations based on ARM Trustzone technology enable security to be built in from the sensor and maintained through the server, keeping citizens’ information private and secure.
For a complete connectivity solution, ARM's mbed software platform provides cloud connectivity, security and device services, making it possible to easily scale and manage IoT deployments.
Shaping the possible through standards and ecosystem
A common platform for diverse market needs
The IoT drives the use of increasing intelligence into industrial automation, transport systems, national energy grids, as well as our homes, potentially enabling a revolution in manufacturing, agriculture, the provision of medical services, and running the entire infrastructure of a city. None of this is possible without interoperability and simplification of security, management frameworks and deployment technologies.
Through the combined breadth of diverse SoCs and microcontrollers based on ARM IP, and the supporting software and tools ecosystem, ARM offers an industry standard developer platform for almost any application. Silicon products can be off-the-shelf or custom. Learn more about ARM’s solutions for custom SoC development.
Often the development of software is the limiting factor in the ability to create new products, and as device platforms become more open and connected standards that enable the reuse of software are more important than ever.
One of the benefits of the ARM ecosystem is the same microprocessor architecture is used across the family, so software does not have to be re-invented. By working with our ecosystem, industry consortia and standards bodies ARM is also driving numerous initiatives to simplify developer interfaces to advanced functionality and enable device and system interoperability.
