Smallest Processor for Power Efficiency

The Arm Cortex-A processor series is designed for devices undertaking complex compute tasks, such as hosting a rich operating system platform and supporting multiple software applications. Cortex-A35, an ultra-high efficiency smart home processor, is the smallest and most power-efficient 32-bit and 64-bit application processor designed by Arm

Features and Benefits

Scalable and Versatile

Scaling from a single core configuration to up to four cores in a single CPU cluster provides great flexibility for designers. As it is architecturally compatible with existing Armv8-A processors, the Cortex-A35 can also be connected as a 'LITTLE' CPU in a big.LITTLE system.

Power Management

Improving battery life and reducing idle power consumption are critical for next-generation IoT solutions. Cortex- A35 includes advanced power management features to reduce the power budget consumption in always-on applications.

64 -Bit Processing

The Cortex-A35 processor supports the AArch64 execution state, which brings 64-bit processing to embedded applications. Seamless backwards compatibility with Armv7-A software in the AArch32 execution state means that it supports software reuse for cost-effective design.

Use Cases

Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

Increasingly advanced levels of interaction with devices in our homes require increasing capabilities from general-purpose processors. Cortex-A35 combines high performance with low power consumption to meet the needs of smart home technology.
