Global training solutions for engineers creating the world's electronics products

ARM Cortex-A8 SoC Design

Standard Level - 4 days

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.


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.
