The Foundation for a New IoT Economy
Arm has been at the center of the IoT revolution for decades and now with our partners we’re going to unleash the potential of the internet of things. Together, we can fuel an IoT economy that rivals the shape, speed, and size of the smartphone industry’s app economy. Achieving this will facilitate new ways to improve human productivity, drive economic growth, and create opportunities that solve some of the world’s toughest problems.
Learn about the benefits of taking a system-first design approach to accelerate innovation from Mohamed Awad, VP of IoT & Embedded at Arm, and discover how to capitalize on the specialized processing capabilities that the Arm ecosystem is delivering.
Introducing Arm Total Solutions for IoT
Developing IoT systems is incredibly complex. To fulfil the potential of IoT, we need to simplify and accelerate development for the entire value chain. Arm Total Solutions for IoT is an industry first, bringing together specialized processing capabilities with standardized, secure software, and innovative approaches to tooling and development.
This unique solutions-based approach represents a radical change in the way technology from Arm and our global ecosystem of partners is made available, lowering the barriers of entry for everyone.
As we enter the next phase of IoT growth, it is crucial that we work together to realize a new IoT economy that will spark innovation and create opportunities throughout the value chain.
To truly fuel the new IoT economy, barriers to entry need to be lower for everyone – OEMs, SiPs and software developers across the value chain.
As part of Total Solutions for IoT, Arm Virtual Hardware, an evolution of our modelling technology, delivers accurate models of Arm-based SoCs to enable software development without hardware.
Delivering a Roadmap for Success
Arm is fully committed to a comprehensive solutions approach, with the Total Solutions for IoT roadmap continuing to be rolled out over the coming months and years. The solutions will target new IoT use cases and support our latest IP.
Arm’s First Total Solutions for IoT
The first Total Solutions address general-purpose compute and machine learning (ML) workload use cases, including ML-based keyword detection and voice recognition examples. Available software and hardware configurations help accelerate and optimize development cycles, reducing costs and risk for a faster time-to-market.
Based on Corstone-300, which integrates Cortex-M55, an AI-capable mainstream processor and Ethos-U55, a configurable and efficient microNPU, designed to accelerate ML inference.
Based on Corstone-310, which integrates Cortex-M85, Arm’s highest performance Cortex-M processor, and Ethos-U55 microNPU for unprecedented scalar, DSP, and ML performance.
Cloud-Native Edge Device
Based on Corstone-1000, which combines a choice of Cortex-A and Cortex-M processors to achieve efficiency and high performance in a constrained power envelope.
Enabling Software-Hardware Co-Design for IoT and ML
Total Solutions SDK
The first configurations of Arm Total Solutions for IoT are available as Software Development Kits (SDKs) on Arm's GitHub. Total Solutions SDKs and other software can be run on Arm Virtual Hardware, available as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) on AWS Marketplace.
Arm Virtual Hardware
Arm Virtual Hardware delivers models of Arm-based processors, systems, and third party hardware for application developers and SoC designers to build and test software without hardware. It runs as a simple cloud application and enables modern agile software development practices, such as CI/CD (DevOps) and MLOps workflows.
Arm Virtual Hardware Lab Series
Join this Virtual Lab Series for an introduction to using Arm Virtual Hardware and discover how it can accelerate product design by up to two years.
Embracing Cloud-Native Approaches for IoT
To address scale and fragmentation challenges across the complete IoT continuum, Arm is collaborating with our partners to develop industry initiatives to enable a cloud-native software experience from endpoints to the cloud, bringing us one step closer to unleashing the potential of the IoT.
Project Centauri is one of the foundations of Total Solutions for IoT and is designed to solve common industry problems, reduce barriers to deployment, and enable scale across the Arm Cortex-M ecosystem.
Arm has aligned with other industry leaders to establish a standards-based approach to platforms and security. Project Cassini is an open, collaborative initiative that will enable the cloud-native IoT and infrastructure edge with Arm Cortex-A.
