System IP for Embedded

Getting Started

The complexity of today's chips means that tying all the system elements together and verifying them can be challenging. Arm enables partners to reduce risk and fast track their design by benefitting from systems that took hundreds of man-years of Arm engineering experience to develop. Explore the Arm system solutions offering, including a number of tested system designs to be used as a reference or starting point for development. Use these designs as the foundation of a system and build around it or as a reference, modifying to match requirements.


System IP Description

IoT Subsystem for Cortex-M

Instead of building your SoC for IoT endpoints from scratch, the IoT Subsystem for Cortex-M allows designers to start from a pre-assembled foundation. With embedded Flash, processing, memory and Bluetooth radio pre-integrated and validated together, it enables fast design of single-chip solutions for IoT.

Cortex-M System Design Kit

For embedded designs, the Cortex-M System Design Kit (CMSDK) is a comprehensive set of IP that helps developers build SoCs for this application. It consists of:

  • Low latency 16-bit AHB/IOP GPIO
  • Simple 8-bit APB UART
  • 8-bit UART with transmit and receive interrupts
  • Simple 32-bit down-counter APB Timer
  • Dual 16-bit and 32-bit operation Timer 
  • 32-bit operation Watchdog timer with NMI and reset support
  • Example AHB and APB slaves
