Network Processor with Armv7-A Architecture

The Arm Cortex-A processor series is designed for devices undertaking complex compute tasks and supporting multiple software applications. Cortex-A15 is a powerful processor designed for a wide range of 32-bit applications that require high performance, with the advantages of power-efficient architecture from Arm.

Features and Benefits
Virtualization Support

Share hardware resources across multiple virtualized compute domains with the first Armv7-A core with the Cortex-A7  big.LITTLE companion. Implementing the Armv7-A architectural extensions provides 40-bit physical addressing up to 1TB and enhanced hardware virtualization.

Out-of-Order Pipeline

Remove code dependencies and achieve high peak and sustained instruction throughputs, enabled by the highest performance, 32-bit triple-issue out-of-order pipeline from Arm.

Networking Features

Get a cost-efficient, high-performance 32-bit processor for infrastructure computing. It supports networking and storage applications, with full ECC cache and memory-protection features for increased reliability.

Use Cases
Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life
Smart Homes

Increasingly advanced levels of interaction with devices in our homes requires increasing capabilities from general purpose processors. Cortex-A processors are the answer for devices that must not only connect to one another, and to cloud systems, but also anticipate evolving services and enhanced automation capabilities.

Industrial Factory Automation

Increasingly, automated factories include autonomous robots that use machine learning and vision systems to enable them to work with less human control. They can also operate in environments too harsh for humans.
