The Designer's Guide to the Cortex-M Processor Family
A Tutorial ApproachBy
- Martin, Technical Specialist, Hitex (UK) Ltd.
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/M3 and M4. It then examines the more advanced features of the Cortex architecture such as memory protection, operating modes and dual stack. For those used to 8 and 16 bit architectures, advice is given on how to do RTOS development.
Key Features include:
- Introduces the Cortex microcontroller software interface standard (CMSIS), a common framework for all Cortex M- based microcontrollers.
- Introduction to the CMSIS DSP library for Cortex M3 and M4 and discusses how to optimise DSP code for the cortex M4 and how to build real time DSP systems.
- An evaluation tool chain IDE and debugger which allows the accompanying example projects to be run in simulation on the PC or on low cost hardware
By reading the book you will learn:
- The key differences between the Cortex M0/M3 and M4
- The key features of the Cortex-M family
- How to write C programs to run on Cortex-M based processors
- How to make best use of the Coresight debug system
- How to do RTOS development
- The Cortex-M operating modes and memory protection
- Advanced software techniques that can be used on Cortex-M microcontrollers including
Embedded systems engineers, undergraduates and graduates developing embedded applications.
