Internet of Things


Silicon & the software that fits

From medical sensors to autonomous cars, connected devices come in all shapes and sizes. Arm has optimized solutions to meet your needs, whatever the application.


Collaboration for success

Scaling to billions of connected devices means that technology and people must work together. From cloud software to connected sensors, the Arm ecosystem has the solutions you need.


Building a foundation of trust

The need to secure data is critical as our world becomes increasing digitized. Arm TrustZone technology is helping maintain data privacy and security, from sensor to server.


Right size, right place, compute

Efficient processing not only means streamlined devices and longer battery life, it means reducing latency, network traffic and server loads by enabling processing closer to the data.

Invisible computing is here

Invisible Computing
Scalable, energy-efficient processing is creating new possibilities

Arm Cortex-M is the world's leading 32-bit microcontroller architecture. It is extending Internet connectivity to the tiniest devices and pushing the boundaries of the intelligence available for a given area and power budget. Cortex-M based chips enable the majority of connectivity standards, powering everything from hair dryers to microwaves. They start as small as 2mm x 2mm and at under a dollar.

Arm Cortex-M processors are built into custom SoCs — devices tailored to a particular IoT application. Arm offers an accelerated route to custom silicon success — find out more.

High performance Arm Cortex-A, Mali GPUs and computer vision technology are bringing enhanced intelligence to IoT applications, meeting the demands of analytics, learning, VR and AR applications in robotics, machine vision and IoT gateways.

Smart Cities

Smart Cities
Computing you can’t see, a better quality of life you can

Today, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a number expected to rise to 66% by 2050. It is more critical than ever that we conserve our resources and make living in a city as comfortable as possible. That’s why governments everywhere are actively deploying smart city concepts and driving new solutions.

Arm provides the power-efficient processing technology that enables sensing, actuation, connectivity and distributed decision making. Security foundations based on Arm TrustZone technology enable security from the sensor to the server, keeping information private and secure. 

For a complete connectivity solution, Arm's Mbed software platform provides cloud connectivity, security and device services, so IoT deployments are easy to scale and manage.

Shaping the Possible through Standards and Ecosystem

A common platform meets diverse market needs

Greater intelligence in factories, transport systems, national energy grids and homes is powering a revolution reshaping entire national infrastructures. None of this is possible without interoperability and simplification of security, management frameworks and deployment technologies.

Arm offers an industry standard developer platform for almost any application through the combined breadth of diverse Arm-based SoCs and microcontrollers and a supporting software and tools ecosystem.  A key benefit of the Arm ecosystem is that the same microprocessor architecture is used across the family so software need not be re-invented. Learn more about Arm’s solutions for custom SoC development.
