Arm Compiler for Linux

Arm Compiler for Linux provides the earliest, most complete, and most accurate support for the latest architectural features and extensions of the Armv8-A architecture. Arm Compiler for Linux supports all the latest Neoverse N1-based processors.

Arm Compiler for Linux is a mature toolchain that is tailored to the development of server and High Performance Computing (HPC) applications, and is supported on all leading Linux distributions: RHEL, SLES, and Ubuntu.

Arm Compiler for Linux includes many powerful, performance-enhancing optimization techniques, including low-level microarchitecture-specific instruction scheduling, including support for Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) instructions.

Arm Compiler for Linux is available as part of Arm Allinea Studio, Arm's commercial end-to-end development suite for Arm-based platforms.
