The ARM® Cortex®-A9 processor is a popular general purpose choice for low-power or thermally constrained, cost-sensitive 32-bit devices.
The Cortex-A9 processor is proven in a wide range of devices and is one of ARM's most widely deployed and mature applications processors. Cortex-A9 processor offers an overall performance enhancement over 25% higher than Cortex-A8 per core, plus the ability to implement multi-core designs that further scale the performance increase.
The Cortex-A9 implements the widely supported ARMv7-A architecture with an efficient microarchitecture:
For the most high-end 32-bit devices, Cortex-A17 delivers more performance and efficiency in a similar footprint than it’s predecessor, the Cortex-A9. They are based of a similar pipeline, with Cortex-A17 extending the capabilities in single thread performance and adding big.LITTLE support and virtualization that were not in the original Cortex-A9 offering.
This architecture is for cortex a9 processors with NEON instructions.
