The ARM Cortex®-A processor series provides a range of application processors for the high performance, mid-range and high efficiency applications. The Cortex-A series includes the high performance processors (Cortex-A57, Cortex-A15), mid-range processors (Cortex-A12, Cortex-A9) and the high efficiency processors (Cortex-A53, Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A5). These processors are used in a wide range of applications ranging from smartphones, mobile computing platforms, digital TV and set-top boxes through enterprise networking, printers and server solutions.

This webinar will focus on the high efficiency Cortex-A processors (Cortex-A5, Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A53). The webinar will further provide technical insights for building energy efficient SoCs based on these processors for high end mobile using big.LITTLE, low cost smartphones, power constrained embedded and enterprise applications.
