Custom SoC Design
Design your chip to meet your specific requirements.
When developing new custom System on Chip (SoC) devices, we know you need specific products, tools and services. Whether you are looking to create a chip from scratch, or looking for a complete solution – Arm can help you every step of the way. If you know what you’re looking for, use the interactive diagram below to select a product, or keep reading below for more guidance.
Create faster, more efficient SoCs with minimal risk
From simulation and emulation to FPGA prototyping and bring-up, Arm is here to give you the right tools to validate and leverage our IP, plus a range of tools and services that will help you realize your design ahead of the curve:
Fast-track your next design
You can choose to fast track your design by using a range of SoC design products. These include fully validated kits and subsystems, as well as free guidance documentation. You can also fast-track your next design using the Arm DesignStart program.
Arm DesignStart offers the fastest, simplest route to proven IP. Products available include the industry-leading Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M3 processors, which are available for commercial development with no upfront license fee, just a success-based royalty model.
Flexible design toolbox containing system and subsystem IP, pre-integrated with the latest Cortex-M processors and security IP. It includes various components required to create TrustZone-enabled systems: AHB5 interconnect generator, memory/peripheral protection controllers, bridges and much more.
These technologies are at the heart of Arm-based technology.
The Arm AMBA protocols are an open standard, on-chip interconnect specification for the connection and management of functional blocks in a System-on-Chip (SoC). It facilitates right-first-time development of multi-processor designs with large numbers of controllers and peripherals.
Arm architecture forms the basis for every Arm processor. The Arm architecture is similar to a Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) architecture, as it incorporates typical RISC architecture features.
Arm’s family of standards-based low-power wireless IP. It offers a complete solution for LPWAN applications based on the NarrowBand IoT standard, and complete RF-to-Application coverage for WPAN radios based on the Bluetooth 5 and 802.15.4 standard.
Support and tools
Compile, debug and analyze knowing that you are getting your SoC right years before the silicon is available. These tools and services offer you the earliest way to start developing. Tools, training and IP from a single source take away risk and uncertainty. With Arm Design Reviews, we can help you to combine our IP with your own.
The Arm Mbed Device OS and Arm Pelion IoT Platform provides the operating system, cloud services, tools and developer ecosystem to make the creation and deployment of commercial, standards-based IoT solutions possible at scale.
The Mbed Hardware Development Kit (HDK) provides hardware design resources to facilitate the development of custom hardware. The Mbed HDK also benefits from the Arm Mbed Partner Ecosystem and associated technologies, such as Arm Mbed OS and Arm Mbed DAPLink.
