The ARM Cortex-A series of applications processors provide an entire range of solutions for devices hosting a rich OS platform and user applications ranging from ultra-low-cost handset through smartphones, mobile computing platforms, digital TV and set-top boxes through enterprise networking, printers and server solutions. The top-of-the-range 64bit aarch64 based Cortex-A57, the high-performance Cortex-A15, the scalable Cortex-A9, the market-proven Cortex-A8 processor, and the high-efficiency Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A5 processors all share the same architecture and therefore full application compatibility, that includes support for the traditional ARM, Thumb instruction set and new high performance and compact Thumb-2 instruction set.
