This guide introduced the fundamental principles of what the Arm architecture is, how it had evolved, and its profiles and their applications. This knowledge helps provide a foundation on which you can build as you learn more about Arm technologies.

We have discussed some of the common terms and concepts that are key to understanding the Arm architecture, and the different profiles of the Arm architecture. We have described features that are specific to architecture and micro-architecture, and how Arm architecture terms and concepts appear in Arm architecture reference manuals (Arm ARMs) and other Arm documentation and resources. We have also learned about the different profiles of the Arm architecture and other Arm architectures.

Further guides in this series introduce aspects of the Arm architecture in detail, and provide examples and commentary.
