ARM now offers a guide how to enable 2GHz Cortex-A9 manufacturing. The company released today Processor Optimization Pack (POP) for this purpose, particularly for the Cortex-A9-based SoCs which are made in 20 mm at the Globalfoundries fabs.
Globalfoundries vice president Kevin Meyer said that there is an increased demand from consumers for energy-efficient and high-performance mobile devices, and its company has partnered with ARM to bring down customers’ risk by offering optimized Cortex-A9 cores that is proved on 28 nm SoC process.
The POP of ARM enables chips which are run at 1 to 1.6 GHz usually, and in typical scenario it runs at 2 GHz.
The POP is offered by the company as an upgrade for dual as well as single core Cortex-A9 designs for getting higher clock speeds.
