ARM Cortex-R real-time processors offer high-performance computing solutions for deeply embedded systems with demanding real-time response constraints. Target applications are: Mobile handset processing in smart-phones and baseband modems, Enterprise systems such as hard disk drives, networking and printing, Home consumer electronics, set top boxes, digital TV, media players, cameras
Embedded microcontrollers for dependable systems in medical, industrial and automotive.

Within these applications are systems that set hard deadlines on processing response. To avoid data loss or mechanical damage, meeting these deadlines is crucial. The design of Cortex-R processors specifically addresses the need for high performance, dependability and error-resistance with highly deterministic behavior while maintaining energy and cost efficiency.
