Cost-Effective Solutions for Industrial IoT

Industrial technology has led the way in the use of connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT). In often challenging environments, industrial IoT requires low-power, high-performance, and low-maintenance silicon that can be easily updated. Arm offers the widest range of cost-effective processing solutions for industrial use cases.

Broad Application Spectrum

The wide variety of compute options means customers can find the right fit for their processing needs. Arm partners make reliable silicon built to withstand extreme conditions. Industrial users can easily find the right set of features with the right level of compute for their needs, from sensors, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to gateways and AI.


Industrial products can be in place for 10 to 15 years, so it’s important that their silicon components are reliable and that devices can be scalable and updatable. Our software solutions help industrial customers scale their IoT systems to handle the device management and device connectivity needed. They can also be assured of future solutions with enhanced products from Arm and our solution partners.


Low Power


In many industrial environments, low-power processing is required to mitigate the risk of overheating equipment. Ultra-low power options from Arm ensure high performance without the need for fans.

Software Ecosystem

Arm has a broad software ecosystem for the manufacturing industry. Industrial applications frequently require real-time operating systems (RTOS), development tools, and sometimes software algorithmic software.  You will find a wide variety of these available running on Arm.




Security must be built-in for industrial applications. Arm makes it easy to design IoT devices using microprocessors with plug-and-play security features and true end-to-end security.
