ARM Cortex Microcontroller Workshop

 

Hitex is holding a series of one-day workshops to introduce the ARM Cortex microcontroller.

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 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.

 

  • ARM Cortex microcontroller core
    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
    Understand the roles of the various CMSIS standards and how to apply them for enhanced productivity.
    • CMSIS Core
    • CMSIS Driver
    • CMSIS DSP
    • CMSIS RTOS
    • CMSIS DAP and SVD

  • Hands-on training with development tools
    Work through practical exercises and learn about the functionality of modern software development tools, and the extensive debugging features available for Cortex-M processors.
    • Setting up a first program
    • Debugging features
