The ARM Cortex-A family of processor cores is gaining traction and success in many applications such as set-top box, smart phones, mobile computing, gaming, DTV and many different ‘internet connected’ devices. In a number of applications, it is not only important to drive multi-processor capability, but to improve single-threaded performance.
The Cortex-A9 Processor Optimization Pack (POP) is a product that allows partners to quickly implement a Cortex-A family processor to achieve high performance while maintaining the advantages of the ARM low-power processor architecture. The ARM POP gives a partner implementation team a time-to-market advantage, lower risk, design flexibility and headroom for further customization. POPs also allow customers to address fast-changing consumer products.
