Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

* Provides engineers with a thorough understanding of how the architecture works by giving detailed information on the processor architecture, including programmer's model instruction set and interrupt handling

* Many examples of programming the Cortex-M0, in both C language and assembly language, gives engineers the 'up-and-running' they are looking for, quickly

* Information on the software development flow including examples from various development tools for optimum efficiency

* Information regarding software porting from other processor architectures including other ARM processors

This is the first book to explain ARM's new Cortex M0 architecture and how to program it from ARM's leading engineer, Joseph Yiu, author of the successful The Definitive Guide to the ARM Cortex-M3. As well as being packed with examples on how to use the M0 architecture, the book gives detailed information on the processor architecture, an overview of the software development flow, and information on how to locate problems in the program code and software porting.

This book is ideal for embedded software developers, embedded product designers, students taking an embedded systems design course where the Arm Cortex- M0 is used, and electronics hobbyists.

About the Author

Joseph Yiu has been working in ARM for over 12 years and has been involved in a wide range of projects including development of ARM Cortex-M processors and various on-chip system level and debug components. In addition to in depth knowledge of the processors and microcontroller system design, Joseph also has extensive knowledge in related areas including software development for the ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers, FPGA development and System-on-Chip design technologies.

The author has written on the Cortex M0 and Cortex M3 in two books (which I own and have read). Both books are good descriptions of the core of the respective architectures. Much of the information is clearly from the ARM technical documentation. Both books are helpful in condensing the ARM technical documentation for readers new to ARM (e.g. migrating from the PIC), or for less experienced users. Later, when such a reader is more experienced with the Cortex M0/M3 architecture they will be better prepared to get more out of the full ARM technical documentation. Be aware that although there is a chapter on assembly language programming and some C examples, this book is not project oriented and does not focus on any specific vendor's Cortex M0 implementation. It is about the Cortex M0 core architecture.

The author worked for ARM for 10 years (state on the back cover). That explains why the majority of the book is written from the vantage point of the ARM RealView tool set. That said, as a user of the GNU tool chain, I found this book to be mildly useful in that respect. There are a few (but far between) mentions of GNU in this book; the vast majority of this text assumes use of the ARM RealView IDE. Although I am experience enough with ARM to port CMSIS code from one vendor architecture to another a reader unfamiliar enough with ARM may find this book frustrating especially if they do not have ARM/RealView (there is a limited demo version).

With respect to the book's content, independent from the tool set, the text is almost exclusively focused on the Cortex M0 core. That is, to understand the various vendor peripherals you need to have a specific vendors' datasheet (or User Manual in the case of NXP) to get the full story on how to use a specific Cortex M0 product.

In this book I found many missing pieces of what I needed to start development on ARM. They are usually not mentioned in device data-sheets which assume at least some knowledge of the subject. Due to this book I was able to complete my first ARM project. It is very clearly written and in contrast with other similar books, it does not reduce to rewriting the data-sheets. I like in particular a very through section on how to design low-power applications. Even if the discussion in this section is based on NXP devices, the entire approach can be easily adjusted to other families. That is what I did for Freescale Kinetis. If you are new to ARM and target to Cortex-M0/M0+, I highly recommend this book.
