With its ARM Cortex-A15 (two cores) and ARM Cortex-A7 (two cores) cores, the MB86S72, developed as a high-end model of the MB86S73, is the perfect processor for high performance and low power consumption systems.
By using these four CPU cores and configuring the big.LITTLE architecture proposed by ARM, the MB86S72 achieves high processing performance and low-power operation.
Using a Mali-T624 GPU
The MB86S73 uses a Mali-T624 GPU. With this advanced GPU, which supports OpenGL ES 3.0, this SoC realizes a highly versatile software platform.
The MB86S73 allows drawing of GUI using 3D graphics quickly with authoring tools provided by various vendors, realizing a rich UI even with embedded devices.
Supporting Low System Power Consumption
In addition to Socionext's unique enhanced Wake on LAN function (standby and response), the MB86S72 supports a Wake on USB function.
With its ability to control the power of unused functional blocks and its memory controller capable of continuing to supply power to external SDRAM in a sleep state, the MB86S72 supports low system power consumption.
