Arm Mbed

Arm®, u‑blox and other partners share a disruptive vision where the creation and deployment of commercial, standards-based Internet of Things devices is possible at scale. Together, we're building the new operating system, software components, tools and ecosystem that will make this vision a reality. The design principles focus on Connectivity, Efficiency, Security, Productivity. The ecosystem is open source and implements open standard.


The Arm® Mbed™ Ecosystem consists of:

  • Mbed OS, a modern full-stack operating system
  • Mbed Device Server, a Server that handles the connections from IoT devices.
  • Mbed Tools, highly productive programing frameworks, tools and collaborative workflows


u‑blox is a official Mbed Ecosystem Partner and develops products using Arm Mbed technology. The benefits for customers are:

  • User programmable application execution environment in u‑blox products
  • Licence free component libraries and examples
  • Free online Mbed compiler and libraries
