ARM Cordio - Ease of Integration

Wireless IP

Low-power, low-voltage wireless solutions

ARM® Cordio® radio IP is the ARM family of Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 standards-based low-power wireless IP solutions, and provides a complete RF-to-Application solution for WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Networks) radios. 

ARM Cordio IP provides on-chip radio connectivity for SoCs implementing wireless solutions for IoT. Cordio radio cores are fully integrated solutions with a hardware core and software stacks, and profiles. These low-voltage, low-power cores are designed for optimal efficiency with the ARM Cortex®-M processor family.

The Cordio architecture brings extensive choice and flexibility to SoC designers. It provides foundry/process support, radio standards, and software stacks for easy integration to their SoC, as well as expanded support through third parties.

With the ARM Cordio family of radio IP, semiconductor companies have access to cutting-edge, sub-volt radio solutions and can effectively keep up with evolving standards and processes in a cost-effective, risk-free manner.

ARM Cordio portfolio consists of complete sub-volt radio IP solutions (hardware sub-system), radio standards delivered as soft IP and software (Link/MAC, stack and profiles).
