Arm Cortex-R52 Software Design
Standard Level - 3 daysview dates and locations
This course is designed for engineers developing software for platforms based around the Arm® Cortex®-R52 processor. The course includes an introduction to the Arm product range and supporting IP, the Cortex-R52 core, programmers' model, virtualization features, instruction set and debug architecture. The course includes a number of hands-on practical exercises covering both assembly and C programming to reinforce the lecture material.
Who should attend?
This course is designed for software engineers writing application and system software for platforms using the Cortex-R52 processor.
- C programming for Embedded Systems training (or equivalent C programming knowledge)
- Experience of assembler programming is not required but would be beneficial
- Some knowledge of embedded systems
- A basic awareness of Arm is useful but not essential
The training materials for this class are based on Arm's own material.
