ARM9 Embedded System Design


The ARM9 (S3C2440X) features an ARM920T core, a 16/32-bit RISC microprocessor, to provide hand-held devices and general applications with cost-effective, low-power, and high performance micro-controller solution in a small form-factor. The S3C2440X is developed using 0.13 um CMOS standard cell and a memory compiler. In addition, it adopts a new bus architecture called Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture (AMBA).

This course covers the hardware and software aspects of ARM 9 system and equips students with practical techniques for application development on real ARM microprocessor hardware. Upon completion, students will understand the ARM architecture development, and will be familiar with popular embedded Linux system application development process.
