Enabling Entry-Level Mobile Innovation
The Cortex-A7 processor is designed for a very efficient, low-cost main stream mobile handset market. The paper will discuss how this extremely power-efficient design will enable entry smartphone SoC designs. In addition, the author reviews design choices considered, including choice of feature set and performance level, and how its simplified pipeline enables lower power consumption. This processor is ideal for not just the mobile but a slew of other embedded markets.
