There is constant demand to reduce power consumption and improve performance in applications processors.
Many of today's consumer and industrial battery-operated applications require Arm® Cortex®-A processor performance at Arm Cortex-M processor power consumption levels, isolated and secure software environments and robust graphic interfaces.

Recently, several innovative design strategies for achieving these challenging requirements have emerged including:
• Fully Depleted Silicon On Insulator (FD-SOI) process technology
• Dual GPU architecture
• Heterogeneous processor technology with independent power domains

This talk will introduce the audience to these concepts and the software that makes the domains work together.


The advantages of using processors with different optimized compute domains
The options a software architect has in using different compute domains to improve performance and power consumption
How to implement effective interprocessor communications in a multi-domain processor.

Intended Audience

This talk is an intermediate talk that describes an A7/M4 dual domain processor that is optimized for battery powered applications. It will discuss the architecture ot the part and its advantages as well as how to effectively utilize the two cores in an application.
