ARMing up for embedded systems design


The three-day ARM Technical Conference this week in Santa Clara,Ca., this week providesembedded systems developers with the best chance they will have this year to get an up-to-date education in how to build applications on this architecture. If you weren't able tot make it in person, be sure to sign up for our ARM Techcon Virtual Event which will make the core general session content and technical presentations available on line.

Tuesday is  Chip Design Day, with 22 classes on SoC architecture and analysis, design and verification, and SoC design for power and performance. In addition to a keynote address from Dr. Shang-Yi Chiang , V.P. of R&D at TSMC, some classes I recommend include:

Pushing the limits of performance
ESL multi-core ARM design and verification
Low power design: what's next after basic power gating.

On Wednesday and Thursday there's more than 80 classes on software and systems design . A few of my recommendations include:

Practical Cortex debugging
Using Cortex-M in multicore designs
ARM processing with a flexible FPGA

For even more on going support for information about designing with ARM devices, be sure to make you destination of choice. Collected in a recent newsletter for your reference is a selection of some of the Arm-oriented design articles, white papers, and webinars offered on the site. My Editor's Top Picks are:

Building bare-metal ARM systems with GNU
Energy efficient C-code for ARM devices
Basics of porting C-code to and between ARM CPUs

I look forward to your contributions in the form of design articles, blogs and in the online dialog triggered by your responses. Site Editor Bernard Cole is also a partner in TechRite Associates editorial services consultancy. He welcomes your feedback. Call 928-525-9087 or send an email to .
