Building a safe and secure embedded world

ARM Cortex Microcontroller Workshop

This is one of our longest-running and most popular courses. It is also ideally partnered with the "Using an RTOS on Cortex-based Microcontrollers" course, held the day after this course.

The course is delivered by our resident ARM Specialist, Trevor Martin who is also a published author and widely recognised authority on Cortex-M cores.

What will be covered?

During the workshop, you will learn about the features of the Cortex-M  processor architecture, along with programming methods to best take advantage of them.

    Gain an in depth knowledge of the Cortex-M0/M0+/M3/M4 and M7 cores. Learn in a day all the critical techniques you will need for a Cortex-M project
    • Cortex M family processor overview
    • Programmers model
    • Interrupt and exception model
    • Compiler Intrinsics
    • Bit banding
    • Memory Architecture and Bus structure
    • Cortex Microcontroller Standard (CMSIS)
  • Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard CMSIS
