Built-in power-saving features
DynamIQ technology integrates a host of power management solutions. A more rapid and autonomous hardware-controlled power state transition mechanism reduces the latency between the power states supported by Arm Cortex-A CPUs, for example ON, OFF, and SLEEP. DynamIQ technology also includes an autonomous CPU memory power solution, which intelligently adapts the amount of local memory that is available to the CPUs, depending on the type of application that is running.
DynamIQ technology also enables finer-grained Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) of individual and groups of CPUs in a DynamIQ cluster.DVFS maximizes the achieved performance in devices that have a fixed thermal budget, while also providing more power savings from all applications of the technology.
You can design next-generation big.LITTLE Cortex-A CPU clusters with a combination of high performance big CPUs and high efficiency LITTLE CPUs in one cluster, with a shared coherent memory. DynamIQ big.LITTLE delivers significant improvements in performance, because it allows a tighter, more coherent system. DynamIQ big.LITTLE also presents unprecedented flexibility and new choices in CPU topology, like 1xbig + 7xLITTLE, to deliver purpose-built solutions.
Advanced RAS and safety features
DynamIQ processors support higher levels of safety requirements, like ASIL D and SIL-3. All DynamIQ-based IP are taken through a rigorous design flow to avoid systematic faults. Safety-related application performance is improved with shorter latency in decision making and actuation across AI scenarios, like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for autonomous vehicles. DynamIQ based systems are integrated with advanced features that improve Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) for applications like industrial and infrastructure.
