This November, the ARM University Programme will be running professor workshops on advanced embedded system design and programming on ARM-based microcontrollers. These will consist of two half-day workshops: one on digital signal processing and the other on operating system design. The workshops are based on two ARM University Program Lab-in-a-Box products targeted at the same ARM Cortex®-M4 based microcontroller board, namely the STM32F4Discovery board from STMicroelectronics.
The Digital Signal Processing (DSP) half-day workshop is based on the ARM University Program DSP Lab-in-a-Box. It takes advantage of the cost effectiveness of many ARM Cortex-M4 based microcontroller boards to provide educators with affordable practical solutions to teach DSP concepts effectively. It contains rigorous teaching materials, including lecture slides and laboratory manuals, as well as numerous example projects for use with the Keil® MDK-ARM development software. The workshop will feature a demonstration of selected program examples as well as an overview of the complete DSP Lab-in-a-Box offer.
The Operating System (OS) Design half-day workshop is based on the ARM University Program OS Lab-in-a-Box and covers some of the most important aspects of OS design. The workshop will walk you through the fundamentals of operating systems with particular emphasis on the ARM Keil RTX real time operating system. The ARM Cortex-M4 based ST DiscoveryF4 board, first seen in the DSP workshop will be used again in this workshop.
Digital Signal Processing: Dr. Donald Reay is a lecturer in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University, United Kingdom.
Operating Systems Design: Dr. Alex Dean is an Associate Professor at the North Carolina State University's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Director of the Center for Efficient, Scalable and Reliable Computing.
You will need to bring your own laptop running Windows. Please download and install the evaluation version of MDK in advance, from http://www.keil.com/arm/mdk.asp . Each attendee will receive a STM32F4Discovery board, a Wolfson audio card with associated connectors, as well as a 12-month license for the full professional Keil MDK-ARM development software.
These special University workshops are completely free-of-charge for all academics and researchers*. Attendees are expected to make their own travel arrangements. Please note that ARM cannot cover any associated travel and accommodation costs in attending these events.
