Cortex-A35 Processor

The ARM® Cortex®-A35 processor is ARM’s most power-efficient application processor capable of seamlessly supporting 32-bit and 64-bit compute. The Cortex-A35 provides full ARMv8-A support while maintaining seamless backwards compatibility with 32-bit ARMv7-A software.

The Cortex-A35 provides the most cost and power efficient upgrade path for next generation solutions in the diverse markets currently served by the ARM Cortex-A7 processor. It consumes less active power compared to the Cortex-A7,while delivering performance enhancements in the range of 6% to 40% across key mobile workloads.

Scalability and configurability are required to meet the diverse market requirements of the next billion smartphones and beyond. The Cortex-A35 can be configured as an ultra-low power, extremely small and ultra-efficient single core configuration, or as up to four cores in a more performant cluster. In a typical mobile configuration, the Cortex-A35 consumes less than 90mW at 1 GHz which makes it the lowest power 64-bit processor for next generation smartphones.

This processor can also be implemented in an ARM big.LITTLE™ configuration, paired with other higher performance ARMv8-A processors.

Key Benefits

  • Most efficient 64-bit ARMv8-A processor with full ARMv7-A compatibility
  • Efficiency improvements compared to the Cortex-A7: Less active power, improved performance
