First High Performance Split-Lock DynamIQ CPU

The high performance Cortex-A76AE processor is designed for devices undertaking complex and demanding safety critical tasks. Arm Cortex-A76AE brings highest levels of safety with Split-Lock capability which includes the ability for Dual Core Lock-Step (DCLS), while delivering uncompromising performance and thermal efficiency. It is the processor of choice for next generation Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving systems.

Features and Benefits

Flexibility with Split-Lock

Switch between split mode for performance for highest multicore performance or lock mode for safety for advanced multicore fault-tolerance with ASIL D hardware metrics. Provide additional flexibility for future mixed-criticality applications.

Thermal Efficiency

Contains the latest state-of-the-art microarchitecture features that deliver greater single-thread integer, floating-point, memory and ML performance. Executes workloads with sustained performance within constrained power envelopes.

Superscalar Processor Core

The superscalar processor core decodes, issues, and executes more instructions than our previous generations. Enhancements also include full out-of-order processing, non-blocking high-throughput L1 caches, and advanced instruction and data prefetching.

Use Cases

Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

Cortex-A76AE delivers substantial gains in peak performance and contributes towards the highest Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) standards required for fully autonomous vehicles.
