Embedded Systems Fundamentals with ARM Cortex-M based Microcontrollers: A Practical Approach

Alexander G Dean 2017

Microcontrollers are embedded into larger systems to provide benefits such as better performance, more features, better efficiency, lower costs and better dependability. This textbook introduces students to creating microcontroller-based embedded systems featuring an ARM Cortex-M CPU core.

Chapter 1 introduces students to the concepts of MCU-based embedded systems, and how they differ from general-purpose computers. It then introduces the ARM Cortex-M0+ CPU, the Kinetis KL25Z MCU, and the low...


Embedded Systems: ARM Programming and Optimization

Jason D Bakos 2015

The modern consumer electronics industry as we know it owes much of its success and popularity to two technologies: the ARM processor and the Linux operating system. ARM processor technology powers nearly all modern mobile devices-and most of these processors run the Linux operating system. It's no exaggeration to say that having an understanding of embedded system design and development from the context of ARM and Linux technology is an important asset in today's world.

Embedded Systems:...


The Designer's Guide to the Cortex-M Processor Family: A Tutorial Approach

Martin 2013

The Designer's Guide to the Cortex-M Family is a tutorial-based book giving the key concepts required to develop programs in C with a Cortex M- based processor. The book begins with an overview of the Cortex- M family, giving architectural descriptions supported with practical examples, enabling the engineer to easily develop basic C programs to run on the Cortex- M0/M0+/M3 and M4. It then examines the more advanced features of the Cortex architecture such as memory protection, operating...


ARM Assembly Language - an Introduction

J. R. Gibson 2011

The ARM core is probably the most widely used embedded central processing unit incorporated in programmed electronic systems. Millions of products with an ARM core are sold every day. ARM cores are components in so many electronic products that ARM is increasingly chosen as the main CPU example for electronic engineering course. This is an introductory text describing the ARM assembly language and its use for simple tasks. It is suitable for students who have not previously used any assembly...


ARM System-on-Chip Architecture (2nd Edition)

Steve Furber 2000

The future of the computer and communications industries is converging on mobile information appliances - phones, PDAs, laptops and other devices. The ARM is at the heart of this trend, leading the way in system-on-chip (SoC) development and becoming the processor core of choice for many embedded applications. System-on-chip technology is changing the way we use computers, but it also sets designers the very challenging problem of getting a complex SoC design right first time. ARM...
