ARM mbed - the IoT device platform

ARM® mbed™ is the IoT Device Platform form the leading company in the connected world. Almost 15 billion ARM based chips were shipped just last year. mbed is a full platform that includes mbed OS and advanced rtos for Cortex-M chips, which are based on Keil RTX. The platform also provides communications stack and advanced security.

mbed OS is supported by the major silicon vendors, making it easy to find a development board that suits customer needs. STMicroelectronics has a full-range of mbed-ready development boards. mbed is also supported by a great online community, where users are sharing code, ideas and discuss freely about it.

One part of the mbed ecosystem is the mbed cloud. mbed Cloud is an ARM solution for device management. It covers services like firmware updates or device provisioning. In order to integrate advanced services like business analytics, the mbed cloud can be consolidated with other Cloud solution providers like Microsoft, IBM or Amazon. mbed cloud is not restricted to mbed OS, it also supports other OSes like FreeRTOS or Linux.

Avnet Silica is official ARM mbed partner, providing you skilled technical resources, easy to use Avnet development boards and customer hands-on workshops, to effortlessly take your application to the cloud.Avnet Silica is launching customer hands-on workshop series in 2017, offering you a great chance to learn more about STMicroelectronics, ARM mbed and the benefits they can bring to your applications and business.
