Foundation for a High-Performance Linux-Capable Advanced SoC

System-on-chip (SoC) designers can build custom SoCs based on a Cortex-A5 design that addresses high-performance application needs, such as smart-home gateways, edge computing, industrial human-machine interfaces (HMI), and more.

 Features and Benefits

Fast Time to Market

Accelerate development with a pre-verified subsystem that can act as a base for silicon designs.

Out-of-the-Box Linux Support

Take advantage of open-source software and libraries, with out-of-the-box Linux support.

Reduce Risk and Costs

Kickstart development on the MPS3 FPGA board and mature the design before going to tape out.

Components of the Corstone-500

The Arm Corstone-500 reference package can be used for building a high-performance SoC, capable of running a rich operating system (OS) such as Linux. It includes the SSE-500 example subsystem, based on the Arm Cortex-A5 processor, providing a solid base for IoT and embedded devices performing complex compute tasks. Explore the components of Corstone-500 below.
