CoreLink CCI-550

The Arm CoreLink CCI-550 Cache Coherent Interconnect

Getting Started

The Arm CoreLink CCI-500 Cache Coherent Interconnect extends the performance and low power leadership of Arm mobile systems. It provides full cache coherency between big.LITTLE processor clusters and provides I/O coherency for other agents such as Mali GPU, network interfaces or accelerators. CoreLink CCI-500 offers a scalable and configurable interconnect which enables SoC designers to meet the performance goals with the smallest possible area and power.


Specifications
