ASSIGNMENT 2 Power comparison of different SOC

Comparison of power between ARM processor    ARM Cortex-A15 ARM Cortex-A57 ARM Cortex-A9

ARM Cortex-A15: The ARM Cortex-A1 MPCore processor delivers unprecedented processing capability, combined with low power consumption. Mobile configurations of the Cortex-A1 MPCore processor, which will include the Cortex-A7 MPCore processor and CCI-400 to tie them together, are expected to deliver over twice the performance of today’s top-of-the-line smartphones and over 4 times the aggregate performance of ARM processor-based infrastructure platforms, combined with ARM's signature low power consumption. ncrease the DSP processing capability of ARM solutions in high-performance applications, while offering the low power consumption required by portable, battery-powered devices. Performance and power optimized L1 caches combine minimal access latency techniques to maximize performance and minimize power consumption. Caches are 32KB for instruction and 32KB for data. This uses 28nm technology ARM Cortex-A57:

ARM Cortex-A9: Power Consumption 0.5 W (Po) . Power optimization efficiency optimized L2 cache design delivers lower latency and balances performance with efficiency.processor solutions offering an over all performance enhancement of well above 50% compared to A8. 40nm (A9) this technology used in A9. Power savings Accurate branch prediction Micro TLB RISC SIMD, Jazzelle RCT etc.

The architecture is ARMv7A for A series ARMv8-A for A50 series. ARM-based chips that offer faster speeds and consume less power 20nm ARM chips ARM-based chips that are making processors more efficient. 30% faster than current ARM-powered Android devices. But this 20nm technology will be started in next year (2014). high performance (LPH) technology offerings. which enables semiconductor manufacturers to pack greater functionality into less physical space at lower costs. FROM PRIYA. the clock speeds of up to 3GHz. one of the most pressing design considerations for today’s system developers is power consumption. One of the most attractive benefits is higher integration. high performance-plus (HPP) and low power. including the 65-nm node and the more recent 45-nm node.Conclusion: The above graph power improvement in cortex –a50 series and cortex A series . 28nm Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) design platform is based on high-k metal-gate (HKMG) 28nm transistors offer up to 60% higher performance than 40nm at comparable leakage with up to 50% lower energy per switch and 50% lower static power. The 40-nm process offers clear benefits over prior nodes. and server arena. to cater to the complex requirements of next-generation SoC's.S SUPRITHA . Here the technology used in cortex-A15 is 28nm and in cortex-A57 is 20nm . cortex-A15 ( 28nm) The technology is available in super low-power (SLP). continues to reduce the power consumption of its processors while improving performance — and while once upon a time that only really mattered in the laptop. desktop.G .
