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.
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.
This class uses training materials developed by ARM®.
