What is the US customs export control ECCN code to use for Cortex-A processors ?

Applies to: Cortex processors

Answer

We discussed the classification of Cortex-A class cores and NEON with the US government and 
agreed ECCN code for Cortex-A8, Cortex-A5, Cortex-A9, Cortex-A7, Cortex-A15 to be 3E991. NEON is 
not considered to be a vector processor in the sense they care about, so 3E991 also applies when 
NEON is implemented.

For Cortex-A15, we also have CCATS #G134199. A CCATS is the US gov. confirmation they have 
reviewed the classification and agree based on its specifications.
