Innovation and Performance for Embedded Design

The world of embedded software development is undergoing a significant shift due to its increasing overlap with IoT, Machine Learning, and cloud computing. Developers need innovative hardware and software solutions that can be adopted quickly to keep up with the industry’s fast pace, and to help mitigate growing layers of complexity.

Arm provides tools and software alongside its architecture to help developers get the best out of Arm-based design and achieve optimized performance, energy efficiency, and security.

Features and Benefits

Optimum Performance on Arm

Arm embedded tools are developed alongside the Arm architectures to allow developers to focus on performance, start software development as early as possible, and optimize the design of any embedded Arm-based device, whether it is a sensor or an autonomous vehicle system.

Tools for Any Development Stage

A wide range of embedded software development tools, debug probes and development boards help create, build, debug, and optimize code for testing, validation, and deployment.

Accelerated Embedded System Development

Models are delivered with the latest embedded Arm architecture to analyze, benchmark, and start early software development. Combined with commercial, open-source, and partner tools, they help to productize IoT and autonomous technologies faster.

A Vibrant Ecosystem

Our vast open-source partner ecosystem drives collaboration throughout the embedded software development cycle with silicon partners, system integrators, and software companies to add value.

Jumpstart your First Arm-Based Embedded Project

Create, build, and run your embedded application in minutes by downloading the free virtual model of the Cortex-M55, Corstone-300 Fixed Virtual Platform, and Keil MDK-Lite toolchain.

Faster Build, Healthier Code with Embedded Continuous Integration

Continuous Integration (CI) is a best practice methodology to create efficient, healthy and secure code for embedded targets with different development and production environments. Arm offers tools and an extensive ecosystem to complement the whole CI solution.


Use Cases

Arm tools and software offer an efficient way to build and deploy IoT and Machine Learning devices at scale by supporting different workloads, devices, software stacks, and clouds.
