Message Text: ARM today announced the availability of a power-optimized quad-core hard macro implementation of its flagship ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore processor.

The ARM Cortex-A15 MP4 hard macro is designed to run at 2GHz and delivers performance in excess of 20,000DMIPS, while maintaining the power efficiency of the Cortex-A9 hard macro. The Cortex-A15 hard macro development is the result of the synergy arising from the combination of ARM Cortex processor IP, Artisan physical IP, CoreLink systems IP and ARM integration capabilities, and utilizes the TSMC 28HPM process.

ARM claims that the low leakage implementation, featuring integrated NEON SIMD technology and floating point (VFP), delivers a balance of performance and power and is ideal for wide array of high-performance computing applications for such as notebooks through to power-efficient, performance-orientated network and enterprise devices.

The hard macro was developed using ARM Artisan 12-track libraries and the recently announced Processor Optimization Pack (POP) solution for the Cortex-A15 on TSMC 28nm HPM process.

Full configuration and implementation details will be presented at the Cool Chips conference (18-20 April) in Yokohama, Japan.
