The Definitive Guide to Arm® Cortex®-M23 and Cortex-M33 Processors focuses on the Armv8-M architecture and the features that are available in the Cortex-M23 and Cortex- M33 processors. This book covers a range of topics, including the instruction set, the programmer’s model, interrupt handling, OS support, and debug features. It demonstrates how to create software for the Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 processors by way of a range of examples, which will enable embedded software developers to understand the Armv8-M architecture. This book also covers the TrustZone® technology in detail, including how it benefits security in IoT applications, itsoperations, how the technology affects the processor’s hardware (e.g., memory architecture, interrupt handling, etc.),and various other considerations in creating secure software.
