Launch into the world of embedded systems development

Whether it′s an iPad, Surface tablet, iPhone or Nintendo DS, ARM is the microprocessor technology that helps run them all. These ARM–based processors offer powerful number–crunching capabilities while using very little energy, making them perfect for mobile devices. This guide gets you started in the world of embedded ARM development, walking you through the different systems common to every ARM processor. It explores the basics of ARM embedded development, including a brief tour of the processors, the programming language used by the processor, and numerous programming examples. Following its step–by–step details, you′ll quickly create your first embedded application.

Professional Embedded ARM Development:

  • Eases you into the world of embedded ARM development by clearly explaining the different systems common to every ARM processor
  • Examines the tools required for developing on ARM systems, including boards, software, and references
  • Gets you up to speed on the assembly language so you can begin low–level system programming and debugging
  • Shows how to perform optimizations to ensure fast code to get the most out of an ARM processor

Wrox Professional guides are written by working developers to address everyday needs. They provide examples, practical solutions, and expert education in new technologies, all designed to help programmers do a better job.
