Arm Custom Instructions: Enabling Innovation and Greater Flexibility on Arm

The road to a trillion intelligent, secure, connected devices continues to demand flexibility and innovation across multiple applications. Arm sees this manifesting partly as increasing interest and demand for more application specific compute optimization – whether in realizing fundamental capabilities like secure communications in extraordinarily constrained devices – or in supporting extremely specialized and performance sensitive algorithms in areas like factory automation.

Arm Custom Instructions support the intelligent and rapid development of fully integrated custom CPU instructions. This enables a new level of workload-specific optimization and increases flexibility while maintaining a coherent software development environment.
