Description

This course assumes no prior knowledge of neither cortex-m nor embedded-c programming. All it requires from students is curiosity.The course takes a practical approach to  cover key areas such as pointers ,structures, memory navigation  and the Cortex-M Software Interface Standard. The main aim of this course is to provide learners with practical skills and a strong foundation that they can build upon to start producing well written code which runs efficiently and leverages the key aspects of the ARM Cortex-M ecosystem.  

Who is the target audience?
  • Embedded systems students
  • Embedded systems professionals
  • Hobbyists
