In this Industry 4.0 revolution, our lives depend on embedded technology which are used in home appliances, smart phones, mobile devices, ultra HD tablets, e-readers, wearable devices, smart TVs, smart cards, supercomputers, smart cars, smart industry, IoT, spacecraft, networking infrastructure, servers, smart humanoid robots, AI etc and ARM technology is at the heart of all embedded systems. The embedded technology is a revolution that is transforming the way we live, and businesses operate. In 2019, ARM partners shipped more than 150 billion ARM powered microprocessor chips, which is expected to grow to 1 Trillion by 2035. The purpose of this course is to explain Core Features of ARM embedded processor architecture, its hardware interface, and software programming via hands-on examples, exercises and projects.

The course intends to provide participants the understanding of the instruction set architecture, memories, peripherals, organization and operation of the ARM microprocessors. At the end of the course, participants should be able to program the ARM microprocessor, develop debugging skills and perform hardware I/O interfacing.
