To enable mass-market mid-range devices, scalability and cost are critical. The Cortex-A17 processor scales up to four cores in a single cluster, and combines with CoreLink System IP components and Cortex-A7 to scale further in a big.LITTLE™ design. Cortex-A17 brings efficiency and performance at a better point than any other 32-bit CPU. ARM POP™ IP enables fast optimized implementations of Cortex-A17 in cost effective 28nm technology.
This processor can also be implemented in an ARM big.LITTLE configuration, for example with the Cortex-A7 processor.
