ARM µP training lays emphasis on providing details about NXP’s ARM7 (LPC21xx ) processor. Training will be imparted on ARM microcontroller Development Board to equip the participants with the skills required y the embedded systems industry. The course curriculum broadly covers ARM7 architecture, instruction set, programming tools, and debugging techniques. Interfacing of IO device is also taught by keeping focus on different interfacing techniques such as I2C, SPI, ADC, DAC, and USB. Serial communication and hardware timer programming are also discussed.

Upon the completion of training, you will be inculcating the following skills:

  • Develop background for embedded systems
  • Differentiate between CISC and RISC processors, Von Neumann and hardware systems, processor and controllers
  • Understand about the concepts, architecture, and instruction set of ARM7
  • Provide an overview of difference between microprocessor and micro controller
  • Work on ARM processor programming including the debugging techniques (JTAG)
  • Implement external interfaces in various embedded system projects by using various interfacing techniques
  • Understand timer C programming and serial communication
Target audience
  • Students from third and fourth year of BE / B. Tech. courses (Electronics, Electronics & Telecommunication, Instrumentation, Electrical).
  • Professionals willing to understand or switch their working area to PIC microcomputer.
