Foundation IP for Mainstream IoT Endpoints

The Arm SSE-100 subsystem is a pre-integrated system based around the Arm Cortex-M3 processor, featuring a range of peripherals and interfaces, including a Flash Controller for TSMC’s embedded Flash memory. Designed for use with Arm Cortex-M processors and Arm Cordio Bluetooth radio IP, other radios and wireless networking standards such as Wi-Fi and 802.15.4 can be integrated. Complemented by open-source software libraries, integrated with the Arm Mbed OS, it forms a solid foundation for simple IoT devices.


The SSE-100 subsystem contains a Flash Controller for TSMC 55nm process. Other process options can be implemented using the Corstone-101 foundation IP, which contains the SSE-050 subsystem – a derivative of SSE-100 to which you can attach a wide range of NVM options, using the generic Flash controller provided as part of the Corstone-101 toolbox.

Features and Benefits
Low Power Consumption

Power management features, such as a built-in Flash Controller and Flash Cache, reduce the power consumption of the system to ensure IoT devices draw less current.

Enhanced Security

The IoT subsystem has been developed in sync with Mbed OS, which offers a range of features to ensure end-product security.

Reduced SoC Design Risk

Arm provides a complete IoT reference system to help reduce the complexity and risk of an SoC design.

Accelerated SoC Development Projects

Prevalidated using the same methodology and processes that are used to ensure the quality of Arm IP.

Use Cases
Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

Enabling cloud management for connected cities, public services and building managers. Offering data insights that can have a positive environmental and financial impact.
