Widely Used, Power-Efficient Processor

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-A7, a power-efficient processor, is designed for use in a wide range of devices with differing requirements that demand a balance between power and performance.

Features and Benefits
Improved Memory

Integrated L2 cache provides a powerful memory system with more than 20 percent improvements in performance over its predecessors.

Enhanced Hardware Virtualization

Because it implements the Armv7-A architectural extensions, Cortex-A7 provides 40-bit physical addressing and enhanced hardware virtualization.

Rich OS Support

Supporting 32-bit rich operating systems, including Linux, allows Cortex-A7 to bring advanced features and performance to life.

Use Cases
Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

To meet size constraints or stand up to harsh environments, developers turn to single board computers. Embedded and IoT developers can find the right Arm-based, production-ready boards, software, and services they need to develop complete systems.
