ARM11 MPCore Hardware Design

ARM Private Training Course


This course is designed for those who are designing hardware based around the ARM11 MPCore multiprocessor. Including an introduction to the ARM product range and supporting IP, the course covers the ARM core range and AMBA/AXI on-chip bus architecture. Symmetric multi-processing, MSEI protocol, ARM debug architecture, real-time trace solution and simulation models are also covered. The course includes a number of worked examples to reinforce the lecture material.


  • Some knowledge of embedded systems
  • Familiarity with digital logic and hardware/ASIC design issues
  • A basic awareness of ARM is useful but not essential


Hardware design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing SoC’s around the ARM11 MPCore multiprocessor.
