Global training solutions for engineers creating the world's electronics products

ARM Cortex-R4 SoC Design

Standard Level - 4 days

ARM Cortex-R4 SoC Design is a 4-day class for hardware engineers designing systems based around the ARM Cortex-R4 processor core. It includes an introduction to the ARM product range and supporting IP, programmer's model, instruction set architecture, AMBA on-chip bus architecture and the Cortex-R4 debug architecture. The class includes a number of worked examples to reinforce the lecture material.

Who should attend?

Hardware design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing SoC's around the ARM Cortex-R4 processor core.


Some knowledge of embedded systems and familiarity with digital logic and hardware/ASIC design issues. A basic awareness of ARM is useful but not essential.
