Description:

Of the 13 billion microprocessor-based chips shipped last year, nearly 3 billion were ARM-based. Since 1994, ARM has introduced five new generations of processors; however, instruction on compiling for 32 bit machines lags behind. Written for those with some background in digital logic and high-level programming, this work serves as a text for new programmers, as well as a reference for students and professionals. It focuses on what is needed to compile for ARM, details real assembly uses, and explores situations that programmers will ultimately encounter. A fully functional evaluation version of the RealView Microcontroller Development Kit from Keil accompanies the text.Author William Hohl currently holds the position of Worldwide University Relations Manager for ARM, based in Austin, Texas. He has been with ARM for over 11 years and began as a principal design engineer to help build the ARM1020 microprocessor. His travel and university lectures have taken him through 36 countries on 5 continents,where he frequently gives talks on low-power microprocessors and assembly language programming. In addition to his engineering duties, he also held an adjunct faculty position in Austin from 1998 to 2004, teaching undergraduate mathematics. Before joining ARM, he worked at Motorola’s Semiconductor Product Sector (now Freescale) in the ColdFire and 68040 design groups, and at Texas Instruments as an applications engineer. He holds an MSEE and BSEE from Texas A&M University, as well as 6 patents in the field of debug architectures.
