Arm to further expand its Automotive Enhanced IP portfolio has announced the release of Arm Cortex-A65AE, formerly known as Helios-AE.
The Arm Cortex-A65AE is designed for more efficient processing of the multiple streams of sensor data being generated in next generation vehicles, and to help enable innovative new driver experiences safely. It does this by delivering enhanced multithreading capability combined with integrated safety through Split-Lock technology.
The Cortex-A65AE manages the high throughput requirement for gathering sensor data and can be used in lock-step mode connected to accelerators, such as ML or computer vision, to help process the data efficiently. High data throughput capability is a key part of the heterogeneous processing mix required to enable ADAS and autonomous applications. The heterogeneous compute cluster also ensures rich, immersive in-vehicle experiences efficiently.
Cortex-A65AE is Arm’s throughput focused application class core with Split-Lock. Together with Cortex-A76AE (also with Split-Lock), these cores enable the highest safety integrity level with leading performance and power efficiency.
The addition of the multithreaded Cortex-A65AE processor to the Arm automotive platform further cements Arm leadership, and the Arm software ecosystem is ready for Cortex-A65AE, with support from Arm Safety Ready developer tools and Linux patches already up-streamed.
