This course is designed for hardware engineers and software engineers developing software platforms based around the ARM Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4 cores.
Including an introduction to the ARM product range and supporting IP, the course covers the ARM core range, programmer's model and instruction set architecture as well as the Cortex-M3/M4 debug architecture is also covered.
The course includes a number of worked examples and hands-on practical exercises to reinforce the lecture material.
- Some knowledge of embedded systems
- A basic awareness of ARM is useful but not essential
- Knowledge of programming in C
- Experience of assembler programming is not required but would be beneficial
