Intended audience

This book is written for hardware and software engineers implementing Cortex-A9 system designs. It provides information that enables designers to integrate the processor into a target system.


  • The Cortex-A9 processor is a single core processor.

  • The multiprocessor variant, the Cortex-A9 MPCore™ processor, consists of between one and four Cortex-A9 processors and a Snoop Control Unit (SCU). See the Cortex-A9 MPCore Technical Reference Manual for a description.
