The Industry Reference C++ Compiler
Trusted by hundreds of thousands of C/C++ developers for decades, Arm's CPP Compiler has been used to build code shipped in billions of devices. It enables the development of highly efficient products that best utilize all features of Arm Cortex processors and architectures, from Armv6-M to Armv8-A 64-bit Arm.
Features and Benefits
Arm Compiler for Embedded is developed in close collaboration with Arm’s processor and architecture projects. It provides the earliest, most complete, and most accurate support for the latest Arm cores and architectural extensions.
Arm Compiler for Embedded is optimized for a wide range of embedded workloads, not just for a single benchmark. This includes workloads running on either bare metal or an embedded RTOS, where responsiveness is a critical factor.
Arm Compiler for Embedded further improves the space-optimizing performance of Arm C/C++ embedded tool chains, particularly for Cortex-M devices. It combines earlier density-enhancing techniques with new link-time optimizations that remove unused and redundant code.
Safety experts TÜV SÜD have qualified Arm Compiler for Embedded FuSa for several industries including automotive (ISO 26262), for development to the most demanding Safety Integrity Levels. Arm qualified compilers provide the long-term stability maintenance needed for modern safety development.
Arm Compiler for Embedded is developed alongside the Arm SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) architecture extensions such as Neon and SVE. It contains advanced auto-vectorization support, to drive maximum value from these vector architecture extensions.
To keep pace with developer needs, C/C++ language specifications are frequently revised and extended. Arm Compiler 6 provides the advanced language support needed by your developers to exploit new and updated language features.
Choice of C libraries optimized by Arm over many years for exceptional performance and code density.
Innovative inter-module link-time code optimization strategies.
Tailored for C and C++ development of firmware and real-time OS (RTOS) applications.
