The new virtual hardware goal can shorten the product design cycle by up to two years

The comprehensive solution of arm Internet of things is based on arm corstone with empirical basis ™ Based on, corstone is a proven and pre integrated subsystem, which has accelerated the product launch process for more than 150 design projects of ARM chip partners. The comprehensive solution of arm Internet of things brings arm virtual hardware targets to software developers, OEMs and service providers. The new cloud based service can provide the virtual model of corstone subsystem, so that software development does not need to be based on physical chips. Arm virtual hardware brings modern and agile software development methods for the Internet of things and embedded platforms, including continuous integration / continuous development (CI / CD), Devops and mlops, without investing in complex hardware farms.

The accurate model of SoC Based on ARM architecture provides mechanisms for simulating memory and peripherals. Software development and testing can now be carried out before the chip is complete. In this way, the typical product design cycle can be shortened from an average of five years to three years at most. This enables ARM chip partners to obtain customer feedback on the chip before the chip is released, and assist the whole IOT value chain. They can easily develop and test the code based on the latest IP before the chip is launched.

Arm virtual hardware is now available in the AWS marketplace and is planned to be launched in China in 2022. Through this technology, arm’s partners are accelerating innovation and accelerating the product launch process.

Design according to use cases to simplify the development process

The arm Internet of things comprehensive solution is a complete set of solutions designed for specific use cases, so that developers can focus on the really important part, that is, innovation and differentiation across different applications and devices. It has everything necessary to simplify the design process and product development, including hardware IP, software, machine learning model, advanced tools (such as new virtual hardware targets), application specific reference code, and support from the world’s largest Internet of things ecosystem.

The first set of configuration of the comprehensive solution of arm Internet of things has been launched, which can be used for the use case of general computing and machine learning workload, including an example of keyword identification based on machine learning. At the same time, virtual hardware targets supporting multiple configurations based on the arm corstone-300 subsystem from ARM chip partners are also ready, which combines cortex ®- M55 processor and arm ethos ™- U55 micro neural network processor.

Arm is committed to taking a comprehensive solution as a way to plan a strong future product plan through a complete product roadmap, which covers applications such as speech recognition and object recognition.

Standardization is the key to scale expansion

In order to make industrial partners use the software and services they have invested in the broadest platform, arm also launched project Centauri. The project aims to provide a set of standards and reference implementations of equipment and platform for equipment startup, security and cloud integration, so as to achieve a similar contribution of project Cassini to the cortex-a ecosystem for a wide range of arm Cortex-M software ecosystems.

Project Centauri’s API includes support for PSA certification and open cmsis-cdi. This is a set of standard cloud to device specifications, which can minimize the development workload required to start different cloud solutions and real-time operating systems. Project Centauri will reduce project development costs, accelerate the listing process, realize large-scale Internet of things deployment, and strengthen the security of Cortex-M ecosystem.

Lead the ecosystem into a new era of Internet of things

So far, the shipment of chips based on arm Cortex-M architecture has exceeded 70 billion and is still growing. According to Mordor intelligence, the average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of IOT chips will reach nearly 15% in 2026. In order to comply with this growth opportunity, arm focuses on ensuring that the ecosystem can continue to be at the forefront of accelerating the innovation of the Internet of things. By expanding the availability of arm IP, different types of enterprises can innovate with the help of the comprehensive solution of the Internet of things and projects including arm flexible access.

The comprehensive solution of arm Internet of things represents the starting point of the new era of Internet of things – an era in which software and hardware are truly designed together at the system level. The unique positioning of arm can combine software and hardware developers to create scenario defined computing and release the economic benefits of the Internet of things. From smart phones to data centers to the current Internet of things, no matter where computing occurs, taking the system into account in the design process will be a key to accelerating innovation and making full use of the dedicated processing capacity provided by the arm ecosystem.
