The ARM Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processor is highest-performance licensable processor the industry has ever seen. The unique combination of performance, functionality, and power-efficiency provided by the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor reinforces ARM’s clear leadership position in these high-value and high-volume application segments.

introduces another member of its , the MPCore Procesor! It delivers unprecedented processing capability and low power consumption, compelling to a wide range of ARM markets. It ensures a full application compatibility with all of the acclaimed Cortex-A processors, enabling an immediate access to developer and software ecosystems. In addition to 700 ARM Connected Community members, it includes Android, Adobe Flash Player, Java Platform Standard Edition, Java FX, Linux, Microsoft Windows Embedded, Symbian and Ubuntu.

The processor has an out-of-order super-scalar pipeline which can be up to 4MB in size, with the help of tightly coupled low-latency L2 cache. Floating point and NEON media improvements results in providing next generation user experience for consumers, as well as high performance in web infrastructure applications. Mobile configurations of Cortex-A15 MPCore is expected to deliver over five times the performance of today’s smartphones. It runs up to 2.5GHz, enabling a highly scalable solutions for shrinking energy, thermal and cost budgets.

With Web 2.0’s complexity, requirement for devices to support multiple software personalities is growing. Due to this, the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor introduces a technology that efficiently handle complex software environment. It is the first ARM processor to incorporate highly efficient hardware support for data management and arbitration. It also enable simultaneous access to multiple software environments and their applications.

Applications include the following:

  • Advanced Smartphones
  • Mobile Computing
  • High-end Digital Home Entertainment
  • Wireless Infrastructure
  • Low-power Servers
