About ARM

ARM Holdings is the world's leading semiconductor intellectual property (IP) supplier and as such is at the heart of the development of digital electronic products. In addition to processor IP, we provide a range of tools, physical and systems IP to enable optimized system-on-chip designs.


"Our choice for ARM architecture and tools was made easy through Logic's ARM-trained experts: They helped us get in touch with the right people at ARM regarding data encryption technology. Thanks to Logic's local presence and support, we were able to get ARM's core tiles working with the ARM tools within a day."

Arm Development Studio

Development Studio at a glance


Two options of Integrated Development Environment (IDE), one for each development type: Keil µVision for smaller microcontrollers, Eclipse-based Development Studio IDE for native multicore support and third-party integration.


Say goodbye to printf trial-and-error. With non-intrusive Arm CoreSight trace-capable debugger and the powerful Streamline system-wide analyzer, you can save time quickly zooming in on both bugs and performance issues.


Highly optimized bare-metal C/C++ code generation, including industry leading auto-vectorization techniques for Arm NEON and SVE technologies. Maximize performance for applications such as DSP, machine learning and image recognition.


From early SoC design stages through to software testing on silicon, from tiny energy-harvesting Cortex-M0+ systems to server-grade multicore Cortex-A SoCs, from start-up to enterprise projects: Development Studio is designed to scale with your projects.

Supported Targets

Supported boards & devices

With well over 5000 devices in the database, Development Studio ships with out-of-the-box support for popular off-the-shelf microcontrollers and application processors, and commercial development boards using them.

Supported processors

Whether you are designing a custom SoC or developing on off-the-shelf device not yet on the tool database, Development Studio’s Platform Configuration Editor (PCE) and the Debug and Trace Service Layer (DTSL) enable debug connection to virtually any design using supported processors.
