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.

Most everything here is in ARM's free databook PDFs. So why buy it? (1) It is cheaper than printing those huge PDFs. (2) It is easier to read. (3) It gives some history and tips that are difficult to find in the PDFs, but help us all write better code.
One complaint: poor binding. Manuals should be bound so they lay flat on a desk and stay open to the page being referenced. The fact that my cheif complaint has nothing to do with the content says volumes about this book.
Good buy.

Covers everything you might need to know about ARM assembly language programming. It has three sections: A. CPU Architecture - ARM instruction set (regular and Thumb) - ARM addressing modes - Examples B. Memory and System Architecture -System Control Coprocessor, MMU, Protection Unit, Caches and Write Buffers C. Vector Floating Point Architecture - Formats, instructions and addressing modes For a more broad and general introduction into ARM Furber's book is excellent and should be purchased first(unless you are just need a reference manual).

Verified Purchase
THis was one of the more expensive books I bought for info on the ARM architectures, but I'm disappointed, the book covers just the core ARM architecture and is a few years out of date now too. Its a tough book to write, no doubt, there are so many variations on ARM that its unrealistic to expect them all to be coevered, but I'd like to have seen some more specifics. Most ARM imlementations by the multiple vendors ot there put in a bunch of peripherals, I'd like to have seen some attemtp to address those features better.

If you wanted a detailed ARM core reference, it might be the book for you, but bear in mind it doesn;t addres the newer products...

This is an architectural reference; it covers the instruction set, exceptions, etc. For that purpose, this is the best book I believe.

This is not the technical reference manual; it will not cover the ICE, instruction timings of a given implementation (say, the ARM7TDMI), coprocessors that might be present, etc. For that, the TRM for a part is best; the TRM will in turn not cover architectural issues, such as the instruction set.

It also is a bit dated, not covering the newer Cortex chips (i.e. Thumb2).
