- New solutions offer a step change in compute for autonomous systems in automotive and industrial automation, which Arm believes will be an $8 billion silicon opportunity in 2030
- Designed with safety first: Arm Cortex-A78AE is Arm’s highest performance CPU with safety, Arm Mali-G78AE is Arm’s first safety capable GPU, and Arm Mali-C71AE enables safety for vision use cases
- The new IP enables solutions for autonomous applications, supported by the Arm ecosystem, software and tools, Safety Ready technology, System IP and Physical IP
- A 30% performance uplift compared to its predecessor.
- Supports features to achieve the relevant automotive and industrial functional safety standards, ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 for applications up to ASIL D / SIL 3.
- New enhanced Split Lock functionality (Hybrid Mode) to offer maximum flexibility. Hybrid Mode is designed to specifically enable applications that target lower levels of ASIL requirements without compromising performance and allow the deployment of the same SoC compute architecture into different domain controllers.
- A new approach to autonomous GPU workloads with Flexible Partitioning, with up to four fully independent partitions for workload separation for safety use cases.
- GPU resources can now be utilized for safety-enabled human machine interfaces or for the heterogenous compute needed in autonomous systems. For example, an infotainment system, an instrument cluster with ASIL B requirements and a driver monitoring system can now all run concurrently and independently with hardware separation within an automotive application.

Mali-C71AE: An evolution in ISP safety
Autonomous workloads need to be aware of their surroundings, often through cameras that must operate in a wide range of lighting conditions. To support a broad range of vision applications across automotive and industrial, the Mali-C71AE offers:
- The flexibility needed to support both human and machine vision applications such as production line monitoring and ADAS camera systems.
- Enhanced safety features, supports features to achieve ASIL B / SIL2 safety capability.
- Support for four real time cameras, or 16 buffered cameras, delivering a 1.2 giga pixel per second throughput.
