The Architecture of Choice for Smart Manufacturing


Arm technology enables workload consolidation with a single, scalable architecture and a portfolio of advanced heterogeneous solutions, helping to reduce hardware infrastructure and energy consumption. Arm-based technology provides the right processing power for a wide range of factory applications, from small control modules to complex robotics using computer vision and machine learning (ML).


Arm technology provides reliability, precision and low latency for efficient, continuous industrial operations, regardless of cycle time requirement. Our extensive portfolio of scalable processors support predictive maintenance and machine-to-machine communications, so equipment repairs can be planned before faults occur and production lines can be monitored and adjusted in real-time.


Our security solutions are designed to protect hardware, software and networks by preventing physical and remote interference. Our comprehensive approach ensures the right level of robustness to match each application’s needs, whether securing cyber-physical systems, protecting data or defending products from counterfeiting and cloning. Arm security products support the Platform Security Architecture (PSA) approach. PSA Certified is an independent certification scheme mapped to key industry standards, including IEC 62443 which is designed to secure industrial automation and control systems (IACS).

Functional Safety

Integrated functional safety is critical to safeguarding the working environment. Arm offers advanced technologies compliant with international safety certifications, such as IEC 61508. Our Safety Ready portfolio supports the highest levels of functional safety required for human-to-machine interaction. A collaborative approach to manufacturing enables autonomous robots to undertake repetitive and mundane tasks reliably, while humans can focus on critical thinking and complex production line decisions.
