Arm CPU Evaluation
Instant access to Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M3
Arm Academic Quickstart
Full RTL for Cortex-M0, M3 and Cortex-A5 and their systems
Arm Academic Access
Our widest range of IP and tools for academic research
|Who Is It For?|
|Who Is It For?||Anyone with a research project who would like instant access to IP for evaluation purposes
||Academics and researchers at universities who only need access to this specific IP for their own research group
||Universities at the institutional level who may have multiple groups with different IP needs and/or more complex projects|
|How Does It Work?|
|How Does It Work?||Download the IP after creating an Arm Account and click through a user agreement
Access is instant after clicking the user agreement
You get industry-standard Cortex-M IP (obfuscated, fixed configuration synthesizable RTL)
You can then design and/or prototype a custom SoC
|Please complete the form via the ‘Apply Now’ link to access Arm Academic Quickstart.
This program will include access to the full RTL for Cortex-M and Cortex-A IP, which you will be able to use to undertake FPGA development and/or small-scale SoC manufacturing.
Many people may find that Arm CPU Evaluation is sufficient for their research needs.
|Submit a simple access request form. Our team will contact you to guide you through the sign-up process
The standardized access agreement is university-friendly. Once your legal department has completed the DocuSign process, access can be extended across the university as needed
Access timelines will vary according to your university processes, but is typically a few weeks to a couple of months
Depending on needs, you can get access to a wide range of IP, including Physical IP if required, and undertake FPGA development and/or small-scale SoC manufacturing
You can also collaborate with any other institution that is part of the program

We have developed a set of standard options to suit different use cases. It’s simple to apply, and our team are on hand to help you throughout the process.
Teach, Learn and Collaborate with Arm
As well as IP, tools, and support, we provide teaching and learning resources through Arm Education, and work closely with academic and industry partners on Research Collaborations.
Arm Education offer a range of teaching and learning resources and materials that accelerate learning with the latest technologies. Find out how students can learn how to design and build with success now and for the future.
Our Collaborations team work with institutions worldwide to help drive research success across academia and industry, collaborating on projects, providing access to resources, and supporting ecosystem development.
Research Enablement Kits help researchers get the most out of widely available Arm technologies. These technologies include Arm-based modelling using the gem5 simulator, SoC design and prototyping, and a set of high-quality SC libraries for the ASAP7 predictive process.
This kit guides you through Arm-based system modeling using the gem5 simulator and a 64-bit processor model based on Armv8-A.
This kit helps you design and prototype a SoC based on the Arm Cortex-M0 CPU.
This set of high-quality SC libraries is for the ASAP7 predictive process design kit.
Achieve Your Research Goals
If your project requires a more specialised set of IP, including physical IP, tools, or support, get in touch with our dedicated team who will be happy to discuss the options.
