Arm Cortex-A32 – The logical choice for rich embedded

The whitepaper explains how the Arm Cortex-A32 processor is an ideal stepping stone into the Cortex-A family for traditional Cortex-M products which can benefit from a richer operating system environment, or from the additional performance and features that Cortex-A processors can provide.

The paper details the enhancements of the Cortex-A32 and draws architectural comparisons to the features in Armv7-M and Armv8-A AArch32, and the differences between Armv7-M and AArch32. The paper provides further analysis on the exception models of the two architectures and explores what areas require closer attention when migrating software from Armv7-M to Armv7-A.
