Build a Secure IoT System-on-Chip: Arm Corstone

Arm Corstone provides everything you need to start your SoC design, helping you build SoCs faster and more securely, with the right architecture choice, integration and verification

  • Arm has integrated the processor(s), system IP, memory system, debug, security IP and other Arm IP together, simplifying the design process and handling the power control, security and performance in an optimised way.
  • Hundreds of hours of verification work has been dedicated to these subsystems, allowing you to benefit from getting to market quickly.
  • Each subsystem is configurable, modifiable, enabling you to focus on differentiation by customizing the system to meet your unique needs.
  • Corstone has been designed to be extensible so you can build the rest of your SoC on top of the system.
  • Simplify software development with easier porting of open-source Trusted Firmware-M (TF-M) for an accelerated route to PSA Certified.
  • Design confidently with FPGA and Fixed Virtual Prototyping (FVP) platforms based on Corstone. Choose from well supported RTOSs such as as RTX, FreeRTOS, Zephyr and Mbed OS to further reduce software development cost.
