ARM teamed up with smart device company Thundersoft to set up the ARM Innovation Ecosystem Accelerator in China.

The project will establish an Internet of Things (IoT) one-stop shop for start-ups and 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 the country'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 Cortexprocessor-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.

"The ARM Innovation Ecosystem Accelerator is a powerful and open platform containing the resources of the world's biggest technology ecosystem that will enable local companies to innovate, grow and succeed in the smart and connected world," said Allen Wu, president of Greater China, ARM.

"IoT is a new market full of opportunities in China, and most innovation will come from start-ups," said Thundersoft chair Hongfei Zhao. "The challenges that start-ups are facing include the lack of complete product experience, resources and ecosystem support. Our joint efforts with ARM can provide not only software and hardware components, but also system-level product development services and the support of the entire ARM ecosystem. We can address the pain points of IoT applications/services developed by start-ups and OEMs to save cost and time, and increase their chances of success in the market."
