Did you know that 82% of developers are considering Linux or Android in their next embedded development?* And that 70% of rich embedded devices are based on Arm?**
That means, by offering easy, low-cost access to Linux-capable, Arm CPUs, developers can unlock the world of Linux software. This saves companies considerable time and costs by using operating systems, middleware and applications that are proven and already ready to run on Arm.
With this in mind, Arm is further expanding our DesignStart program to help drive innovation, bringing Arm-based Linux development within reach.
Developers can now get fast, low-cost access to the Arm Cortex-A5 processor for a small access fee of $75k, including one year of support. Cortex-A5 is an advanced, highly capable application processor with the lowest power of any Arm Cortex-A CPU. Now with simple access to the proven, advanced, Linux-capable CPU, along with a comprehensive package of system IP, designers can more easily create rich embedded and IoT systems-on-chip (SoCs).
