Corstone-700 is a flexible compute architecture combining Cortex-A and Cortex-M processors and a secure enclave alongside system IP, aimed at building secure IoT SoCs. For more details please see Arm’s Foundation IP Developer pages
A reference Open Source software stack will shortly be available for this platform. This is intended to enable product software development and help “bootstrap” a variety of Arm Partner software and product solutions.
The software stack has been developed around a FVP (Fixed Virtual Platform) model showing one example configuration.
It will ultimately provide an OS/RTOS for each of the compute components, including a Cortex-A hosted Linux stack with a reduced memory footprint. It will also provide example drivers for key IP components. Supporting code is available either directly in the relevant upstream projects, or via public-facing git repositories hosted by Linaro.
Initial releases (and access to the FVP) will be aimed at lead Partners licensing the associated IP.
