Building an ARM Cortex-M1 Embedded System in a Mixed-Signal FPGA

Actel will conduct a free training session at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC). The in-depth, hands-on session will show designers how to implement Actel’s royalty-free ARM Cortex-M1 processor into Actel Fusion mixed-signal FPGA. Designers will learn the design flow for industry-standard processors in Actel flash-based FPGAs, using the new Fusion Embedded Development Kit. This kit supports both 8051 and ARM Cortex-M1 development. Fusion Embedded Development Kits will be raffled off to attendees for free.

Presentation Summary
Building an ARM Cortex-M1 Embedded System in a Mixed-Signal FPGA This session shows you how to implement Actel’s royalty free ARM Cortex-M1 processor in Actel Fusion, the industry’s first mixed-signal FPGA. You will learn the design flow for industry standard processors in Actel flash-based FPGAs, using the new Fusion Embedded Development Kit which supports both 8051 and ARM Cortex-M1 development. The design flow utilizes Actel’s Libero SmartDesign to build a custom processor with free subsystem peripherals and SoftConsole that enables software engineers to write and debug C and C++ programs. FREE Fusion Embedded Development Kits, which include tutorials and design examples, will be raffled off to attendees.
