Build a Secure IoT System-on-Chip

Designing a secure system-on-chip (SoC) is challenging and time-consuming. To help designers get to market quickly, Arm provides the IP blocks needed to build a system. Corstone is a complete solution for architecting a system with security at the heart, while balancing trade-offs between performance and power.

Introducing Arm Corstone

Arm Corstone helps designers build secure SoCs faster with the right architecture choice, integration, and verification – the perfect starting point for your SoC. Designers can use Corstone as a framework upon which to build an SoC with a subsystem that can be tailored to specific needs or used as is.

Reduce Your Time to Market

The pre-designed, pre-verified, and pre-validated subsystems significantly accelerate the development of secure SoCs, saving you time and allowing you to focus your resources on differentiation.

Security Built-in

Designed to Platform Security Architecture (PSA) principles and with options for pre-built security IP including firewalls, secure enclave and Arm TrustZone technology, Corstone saves time to market, security-in-design and reduces risk.

Components of Corstone Reference Packages

Corstone comprises processor, security and system IP, as well as software and development tools to help get to market quickly.
