CoreLink CCI-550

The Arm CoreLink CCI-550 Cache Coherent Interconnect

Getting Started

The Arm CoreLink CCI-550 Cache Coherent Interconnect provides full cache coherency between big.LITTLE processor clusters, Mali GPU, and other agents such as network interfaces or accelerators. It can support up to six ACE interfaces and six memory interfaces for the efficient movement of data across the SoC.

CCI-550 provides:

  • A trusted interconnect solution enabling multiple applications.

  • Optimized path to memory that enhances the user experience.

  • Highest efficiency coherent interconnect.
