This course is designed for those who are involved in designing systems based around the ARM Cortex-M3 or Cortex-M4 processor core. Including an introduction to the ARM product range and supporting IP, the course covers the Cortex-M3 core architecture, programmers' model, instruction set and bus architecture. The CoreSight debug architecture is also covered as relevant to the Cortex-M3/M4.
This course is intended for hardware design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing SoC's around the Cortex-M3/M4 processor core. It is also intended for software engineers developing for systems designed around the Cortex-M3/M4 core. The software development parts of this course refer to ARM development tools such as Keil MDK-ARM. However, much of this material is relevant to users of 3rd party ARM tools.
