ARM Cortex-R7 MPCore Hardware Design

ARM Training Course

Details on this training course are provided below. Please contact Support for information about booking any of ARM's training courses.


This course is for engineers who will integrate the Cortex-R7MPcore in to an SoC design. It assumes no knowledge of ARM processors or associated bus protocols. It starts by introducing the essential ideas of the ARM architecture, micro-architecure and bus protocols. It then looks at the main blocks and behaviours of the C-R7MPcore. It also introduces CoreSight debug infrastructure and the embedded debug features of the C-R7 processors.


  • Some knowledge of embedded systems
  • Familiarity with digital logic and hardware/ASIC design issues
  • A basic awareness of ARM is useful but not essential


Hardware design engineers who need to understand the issues involved when designing SoC's around the ARM Cortex-R7 processor core.
