ARM7/9 Software Design is a 3-day comprehensive class that introduces the current ARM architectures and the ARM development systems.
In the second part of the class, the emphasis is on the development and debugging of ARM software code for ARM7 and ARM9 based systems.
The course familiarises the delegates with the ARM architecture, as well as the corresponding command sets ARM and Thumb. Examples will be used to explain how to write exception handlers (e.g. interrupt handlers) and ROM code.
The workshops are based around carefully designed exercises to reinforce and challenge the extent of learning, and comprise approximately 30% of class time. RVDS and MDK toolsets are supported.
Software developers who wish to develop system and application software for ARM based systems.
An in-depth knowledge of microprocessors is not essential, but would be advantageous. However, all participants must be computer literate and should have a basic understanding of the programming language C.
This class uses training materials developed by ARM®. In addition, Doulos has developed dedicated workbooks for delegates who wish to use MDK, rather than RVDS, in the workshops.
