ARM® Cortex™-M1 FPGA Design is a 3-day class for engineers designing hardware based around the ARM Cortex-M1 core. The ARM Cortex-M1 is the first ARM core especially designed and optimised for the use in FPGAs. Most FPGA vendors support the core in their design flow (Altera, Actel, Xilinx). The class includes an introduction to the ARM product range and supporting IP, programmer's model, instruction set architecture, AMBA on-chip bus architecture and Cortex-M1 debug architecture options. The class includes a number of worked examples developed by ARM to reinforce the lecture material.
Hardware and System design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing FPGA's around the ARM Cortex-M1 core.
Some knowledge of embedded systems and familiarity with digital logic and hardware/FPGA design issues. A basic awareness of ARM is useful but not essential.
