ARM Debuts Cortex-A35 for Mobile and Embedded Applications

ARM introduced the first CPU in a new family of ultra-high-efficiency ARMv8-A processors designed for high-growth mobile and embedded applications. Currently more than 50 percent of smartphones now shipping using an SoC based on the ARMv8-A architecture.

The new ARM Cortex-A35, which is expected to begin shipping in production silicon from the company's partners by late 2016, offers 64-bit and 32-bit computational capability with cryptography features.

ARM said its design delivers an average of 20 percent greater performance and efficiency across a range of 32-bit mobile workloads relative to Cortex-A7 while consuming less than 90mW total power per core when operating at 1GHz in a 28nm process node. The Cortex-A35 consumes about 33 percent less power per core and occupies 25 percent less silicon area, relative to the Cortex-A53.

“Cortex-A35 is the natural successor to the compact-footprint Cortex-A7, the leading energy-efficient processor, which has powered more than a billion smartphones and tablets,” said James McNiven, general manager, CPU group. “With the introduction of the world’s most efficient 64-bit capable mobile processor, ARM and its partners will deliver the benefits of 64-bit computing to the next billion smartphone users and beyond.”

At this week's ARM TechCon 2015 conference in Santa Clara, California, ARM is also releasing a new suite of products to accelerate secure IoT deployments. The release includes mbed Device Connector, a free service that businesses can use to connect and securely manage IoT devices. It also includes the enhanced mbed OS (Technology Preview version) and new mbed Reference Designs.
