Exploring the new blue ocean of the chip market, arm released three strategies of IOT

Abstract: as the global intelligent market gradually matures and saturates, arm is also looking for the next industrial field that can lead the new revolution in the popularity of chip licensing. Therefore, it announced three strategies in the field of IOT (I "made in China 2025" OT, which has risen to the national strategy), hoping that more developers can adopt arm IOT SoC design at a lower cost

in order to find the next industrial field that can lead the new revolution in the popularity of chip licensing, arm locked IOT and announced three strategies. First, it will significantly reduce the entry cost of IOT product development by deleting fixed IP fees and adopting an authorization fee collection system based on product success; Second, with the help of mbed, we provide assistance in SoC design through armdesignstart and IOT devices; Third, build a community to further accelerate the design process. With the continuous deepening of science and technology

as the global intelligent market gradually tends to be mature and saturated, arm is also looking for the next industrial field that can lead the new revolution in the popularity of chip licensing. Therefore, it has targeted the IOT field and announced three strategies, hoping that more developers can adopt arm IOT SoC design at a lower cost

arm uses Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M3 processors as the first two processor solutions free of prepaid licensing fees. Whether arm can take this opportunity to lead the development of chip architecture in the era of the global IOT will be worth observing this strategy announcement

according to techgage, arm recently announced three strategies. First, it will significantly reduce the entry cost of IOT product development by deleting fixed IP fees and adopting an authorization fee collection system based on product success; Second, with the help of mbed, we provide assistance in SoC design through armdesignstart and IOT devices; Third, build a community to further accelerate the design process

in the first point, when designing IOT system with Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M3 processors, there is no need to pay arm the front-end cost first. Although the process of M-series processor fame is likely to expand to a wide range of production and manufacturing industry, which is not as big as cortex-a series processors in the field, it is very common to import in other device fields. For example, M0 mainly provides the import of low-power devices, m3 is a more mainstream chip, which is mainly used in thermostats Other IOT devices and toys

if the developer uses the IOT device developed by ARM chip architecture, as long as the shipment reaches 1000 models, arm will basically not charge the developer patent fees, so that these start-ups facing high survival risks do not need to worry about the problem of having to pay licensing fees to arm. Even if a successful product is finally launched, arm will only charge less than US $200000 for the shipment of 5million units, which means that arm will only charge about US $0.04 for each chip

the second point is related to accelerating the design process and simplifying IP management. Arm's designstart is equivalent to a scheme that allows developers to integrate different arm and partner IPS, build their own systems, simulate processors, fine tune on FPGA, and finally ship the final chip

"designstart Eval" is a basic scheme that allows any developer to build their own arm processors with M0 and M3 processors with the consent of a simple EULA; "Designstart Pro" is for the design and authorization of commercial SOC. Designstart is not only about hardware and chips, but also about software integration

for example, m3 processor has mbed system platform, which allows developers to run by themselves, and mbed provides many software libraries needed to communicate with different devices for the operating system specially built for the IOT platform

the third point is the socialization promoted by most developers and design systems. Armdesignstart opens the opportunity to access a large number of tools and the arm forum, and takes this opportunity to ask questions about the community. At present, 250000 developers have registered for the mbed operating system, 20 ide compilers for M-series processors, and more than 1000 guides, books, and resources. It can even contact the appropriate studio for the highest monthly sales publisher in the history of China's mining machine industry, The studio creates chips for developers, and then arm reviews them

when Softbank of Japan acquired arm in 2016, a key acquisition decision was to build a platform to lead the transformation of IOT. Therefore, it launched the first stage chip strategy of using M-series processors to achieve the goal of 1-megalink devices. Other strategies and efforts of arm in the IOT field in the future are still worthy of continuous attention
