ARM University Program

Preparing Students Today for Tomorrow’s Technology
The ARM University Program enables educational use of ARM technology. University courses and labs, student projects, and academic research in embedded systems, microprocessors/controllers, mechatronics, SoC design, computer architecture, and other areas all benefit from using ARM. The program provides a variety of teaching materials, hardware platforms, software development tools, IP, and other resources for educators, students, and researchers.

ARM - Xilinx SoC Lab-in-a-Box One day workshops

Monday, Sep 1st, 2014, 08:30-17:00, room WR6, Technische Universität München, Germany (FPL 2014 Conference)


The ARM and Xilinx University Program are hosting a one-day workshop specifically for training Faculty and Researchers on the ARM SoC Lab-in-a-Box. The latter is based on the ARM® Cortex®-M0 DesignStart processor core and Xilinx Vivado Design Tools. The one day workshop comprises lectures, hands-on exercises, and opportunities to network with experts from ARM and Xilinx.

The workshop focuses on designing ARM® AMBA® 3 AHB-Lite compliant hardware peripherals like UART, VGA, Timers etc. and integrating them onto a simple Cortex-M0 based SoC. The SoC will be programmed with ARM® Keil® MDK-ARM software suite, Xilinx Vivado Design Tools and prototyped on a Xilinx Nexys4 Artix-7 based FPGA board. 


Attendees are expected to have access to ARM® DesignStart™ portal. (New users have to complete the portal registration to get access. At Stage4 of your DesignStart application process, please mention “Cortex M0-DesignStart for FPL 2014 Workshop” inside "Request summary" box for faster processing).

Attendees should bring a laptop running Windows OS with the Keil MDK-ARM evaluation software tool (free download) and Xilinx Vivado 2014.2 Webpack (free download).

Knowledge of digital design using Verilog/VHDL, FPGA synthesis flow and experience in programming micro-controllers will be helpful.
