The Cortex-A5 delivers a range of high-end features to power and cost-sensitive applications. These include multiprocessing capability for scalable and energy-efficient performance, an optional Floating-Point Unit (FPU) and ARM NEON™ unit for media and signal processing, and a high-performance memory system including configurable caches and a Memory Management Unit (MMU).
- ARM’s smallest application processor with Uniprocessor (UP) and Multiprocessor (MP) licensing options
- Extremely configurable processor with optional NEON, optional FPU and L1 caches configurable from 4K-64KB
- Full feature set of Cortex-A9 processor at one third the area and power
The Cortex-A5 is designed for applications that require virtual memory management for high-level operating systems within an extremely low-power, low-area profile, including:
(IoT) - rich nodes
The Cortex-A5 can be incorporated into a SoC using a broad range of ARM technology including Graphics IP, System IP, and Physical IP. It is fully supported by ARM development tools. Related IP includes:
