Arm Mbed Enabled

The program aims to validate a product’s compliance with the requirements of the Arm® Mbed Enabled™ Program. Validation ensures that a product conforms to Mbed’s compliance criteria and technical requirements and maintains interoperability with other Mbed Enabled products.

By participating in the Mbed Enabled Program, you are helping to make Internet of Things (IoT) devices that have been validated against a specific set of criteria and based on open standards. When a product is validated it becomes part of an extensive ecosystem of Mbed Enabled products, services and solutions to help facilitate the growth of a scalable IoT ecosystem.

The Mbed Enabled program requires approval with the latest published version of compliance criteria and technical requirements of the program.

Program Benefits

  • Easily make your product known to the Mbed developer community and ecosystem.
  • Have your product referenced and linked on the Mbed site. Boards and Components also have the opportunity for a product-specific page on the Mbed site with links to documentation, tutorials, and other marketing material. 
  • Clearly identify your product as ‘Mbed Enabled™’ by using the program's logo on your site, marketing material and products.
  • Participate in Mbed marketing activities (blogs, social media, events and so on).
  • Show your product at the Arm trade shows and the Arm IoT exhibition area at the Cambridge headquarters.
  • Have the opportunity to feature as an Arm Mbed product case study and be part of the Arm Innovation Hub.

Program Requirements

  • Publish the Arm Mbed Enabled logo on relevant products webpage(s).
  • Those applying under the Board, Component and End Product categories will need to mail at least ten sample products or prototypes to the Mbed team. We will use these for testing and future public demonstrations.
    Note: Applications will not progress until the samples are received and scheduled for validation.
