Webinar Overview:

A best-of-both worlds solution for embedded systems

The combination of the widely acclaimed Arm® Cortex®-M MCU architecture with the performance of a Xilinx® FPGA provides more flexibility and greater scope for innovation in the creation of application-optimised designs.

Many Vivado® users are familiar with the Microblaze™ RISC processor. However, the Arm Cortex-M3 has a substantially different hardware architecture, with unique system integration aspects.

In this webinar we will examine the Cortex-M3 IP block and discuss its integration inside a Xilinx FPGA.

We will:

  • Examine the two main system busses, their use model and restrictions
  • Review the operations of the Nested Vectored Interrupt Controller (NVIC) and its interaction with a Wakeup Interrupt Controller (WIC)
  • Examine the memory management operations along with invasive and non-invasive debugging features of the core.
