ARM Cortax A9

The ARM Cortex-A9 processor is a popular general purpose choice for low-power or thermally constrained, cost-sensitive devices.

The processor is a mature option having been introduced in 2008, and remains a very popular choice in smartphones, digital TV, and both consumer and enterprise applications enabling the Internet of Things. As a single processor solution, the Cortex-A9 processor offers an overall performance enhancement of well above 50% compared to ARM Cortex-A8 solutions.

The Cortex-A9 processor is available with a range of supporting ARM technology. ARM Physical IP is available to support a synthesizable flow optimized for lowest power or highest performance, as well as a choice of hard-macros reducing risk and shortening time-to-market. (Source: )
