ARM Cortex-A8 SoC Design

Standard Level - 4 days

view dates and locations

ARM Cortex-A8 SoC Design is a 4-day comprehensive class designed for those who are designing SoCs based around the ARM Cortex-A8 processor core.

Who should attend?

Hardware design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing SoCs around the ARM Cortex-A8 processor core.

This is also an excellent preparatory course for engineers looking to become an ARM Accredited MCU Engineer. Find out how Doulos can help you work towards an AAE qualification »


Delegates should have some knowledge of embedded systems, and familiarity with digital logic and hardware/ASIC design issues. A basic awareness of ARM is useful, but not essential.
