CoreLink CCI-400

The Arm CoreLink CCI-400 Cache Coherent Interconnect

Getting started

The Arm CoreLink CCI-400 Cache Coherent Interconnect provides full cache coherency between two clusters of multi-core CPUs. It enables big.LITTLE processing and I/O coherency for devices such as the Mali-T600 series GPU, and I/O requesters like modem and USB. First released in 2011, CoreLink CCI-400 has been widely licensed and is today shipping in many millions of production devices.
