This course is designed for those who are involved in designing systems based around the Arm Cortex-M23 processor core. Including an introduction to the Arm product range and supporting IP. The course covers the Cortex-M23 core architecture, programmers’ model, instruction set and bus architecture. The CoreSight debug architecture is also covered as it is relevant to the Cortex-M23. This course is intended for hardware design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing SoC’s around the Cortex-M23 processor core. It is also intended for software engineers developing for systems designed around the Cortex-M23 core. The software development parts of this course refer to Arm development tools such as Keil MDK-Arm. However, much of this material is relevant to users of 3rd party Arm tools.


  • Knowledge of programming in C
  • Experience of assembler programming is not required but would be beneficial
  • Knowledge of embedded systems
  • A basic awareness of Arm is useful but not essential
