ARM has partnered with Thundersoft, a world leader in smart device platforms, to establish the ARM Innovation Ecosystem Accelerator. The collaboration creates an Internet of Things (IoT) one-stop shop for startups and established OEMs, providing integrated hardware and software expertise as well as resources from the ARM® ecosystem. The Beijing facility is the first of four planned and is aimed at further advancing China's IoT industry.
The first office in Zhongguancun, Beijing, will offer an ARM mbed IoT Device Platform innovation lab and an ARM Cortex-based IoT system on chip (SoC) design lab alongside joint facilities with ecosystem partners. The accelerator will provide workshops, training, and design services for mbed OS and Cortex processor-based development platforms. System integration services aligned to the needs of the local design environment will also be available to further facilitate and speed up the path from prototype to production.
