1.1. About the Cortex-A15 processor

The Cortex-A15 processor is a high-performance, low-power processor that implements the ARMv7-A architecture. The Cortex-A15 processor consists of one to four processors in a single MPCore device with L1 and L2 cache subsystems.

Figure 1.1 shows an example block diagram of a Cortex-A15 configuration with four processors.

See Components of the processor for a description of the Cortex-A15 functional components.
