About the ARM Architecture
The ARM architecture is the industry's leading 16/32-bit embedded RISC processor solution. ARM Powered microprocessors are being routinely designed into a wider range of products than any other 32-bit processor. This wide applicability is made possible by the ARM architecture, resulting in optimal system solutions at the crossroads of high performance, low power consumption and low cost.About the book
This is the authoritative reference guide to the ARM RISC architecture. Produced by the architects that are actively working on the ARM specification, the book contains detailed information about all versions of the ARM and Thumb instruction sets, the memory management and cache functions, as well as optimized code examples.
