Hard-macro processor

The ARM Hard Macro portfolio offers hard macrocell implementations of the Cortex-A series processors.

While soft-core implementation remains the best choice for design teams wanting complete freedom and flexibility, recent industry trends are making designers look at alternatives such as using ARM Hard Macros.ARM Hard Macros enable to achieve higher levels of innovation and profitability by facilitating device differentiation and highly competitive solutions. ARM Hard Macros are also an attractive choice for designers new to the ARM architecture or those wishing to migrate upwards to Cortex-A from ARM9 and ARM11 based designs.

Hard Macros provide finely tuned PPA (Performance, Power, and Area) results that are hard to beat using the traditional soft-core implementation strategies, resulting in design simplification.
