In time for the Embedded World 2010 ARM is introducing the Cortex-M4, the fourth processor in the M-class architecture. No other ARM architecture has got so many licenses in such short time frame.
The ARM Microcontroller Prototyping System (MPS) is based on a platform using FPGAs and allows the fast and easy evaluation and development of an ARM Cortex-M system. The encrypted image of the ARM Cortex-M family core (Cortex-M0/M1/M3/M4 see figure 1.) in one of the FPGAs makes this system available to all interested customers. This paper will discuss the possibilities and limits of this system, will reflect on the first experience and shows the system design flow with the available hardware and software IP. This system is the ideal starting point for engineers to evaluate and develop an entire hardware and software system based on Cortex-M cores from ARM.
