Standard Level - 2 days

view dates and locations

ARM® Cortex®-M0+ Software Design is a 2-day class for software engineers developing software for platforms based around the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core. Including an introduction to the ARM product range and supporting IP, the course covers the ARM Cortex-M0+ programmer's model, instruction set architecture and software development tools.

The class includes a number of worked examples developed by ARM to reinforce the lecture material.

Who should attend?

Software engineers writing application and system software for platforms using the ARM Cortex-M0+ processor core.


  • Some knowledge of embedded systems.
  • A basic awareness of ARM is useful but not essential.
  • Knowledge of programming in C.
  • Experience of assembler programming is not required but would be beneficial.
