The Cortex-A32 is based on an 8-stage in-order pipeline that has been extensively optimized to implement the 32-bit instruction set of the ARMv8-A architecture profile in the smallest possible die area while significantly reducing dynamic power consumption compared to the current power efficiency leader, the Cortex-A7. The Cortex-A32 delivers 25% more efficiency (performance per mW) than the Cortex-A7 in the same process node. Cortex-A32 delivers this efficiency through a combination of both performance improvements and power reduction.
- ARMv8-A architectural enhancements, full backwards compatibility with ARMv7-A software
- Higher efficiency and performance compared to Cortex-A7 processor
- New idle power management features
- Highly scalable 32-bit processor with new configuration options
The Cortex-A32 will drive innovation across diverse embedded markets including:
