Arm Ethos-U core platform

Arm Ethos-U core platform is provided as an example of how to produce a firmware binary for a given target platform. This software is primarily intended for guidance, to demonstrate how to boot up a firmware binary and how to run an inference on an Arm Ethos-U compatible platform.

This repository contains target specific files, like linker scripts. Target agnostic software components are provided in the core_software repository.



The Corstone-300 is a reference design of how to to build a secure System on Chip (SoC). A fixed virtual platform (FVP) of the Corstone-300 including the Arm Ethos-U can be downloaded from the Ecosystem page at


Building with default settings requires CMake for the configuration and make for building. This will produce an elf file which can be run on the FVP.

$ cmake -B build/corstone-300 targets/corstone-300
$ make -C build/corstone-300

It is also possible to build with a different toolchain.

$ cmake -B build/corstone-300 targets/corstone-300 -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=$PWD/cmake/toolchain/arm-none-eabi-gcc.cmake
$ make -C build/corstone-300


Assuming that the Corstone-300 FVP has been downloaded, installed and placed in the PATH variable. Then the software binary can be tested like this.

$ FVP_Corstone_SSE-300_Ethos-U55 build/corstone-300/ethosu_corstone_300.elf
