This webinar will focus on the ARM® Cortex™-R processors and how they deliver high performance and real-time responsiveness in embedded systems using Cortex-R4, Cortex-R5 or the new Cortex-R7. We will examine the innovations, including the multi-core and coherency technology, micro-architecture improvements, optimised access to external peripherals, and increasingly higher levels of safety as demanded by today’s rigorous industry standards. ASIC and ASSP designers, MCU application engineers and programmers will gain a better understanding of the key technology of the Cortex-R profile.

This webinar will cover:

  • Detailed descriptions of the new features of the Cortex-R processors
  • An understanding of real time processor differentiation
  • Real-time application scenarios
  • Knowledge of ARM roadmap
  • An insight into the latest mobile standards

Chris Turner, Product Marketing Manager, ARM Chris works at ARM in the Processor Division’s product marketing group where he manages the Cortex-R real-time processors. These processors deliver the enabling technology that runs communications inside mobile handsets and tablets – supporting the applications processor. If you just subscribed to an HSPA or LTE data service then you’re almost certainly using a USB modem stick powered by these ARM Cortex-R processors. And, you’ll find these same processors in just about every high performance hard disk drive, under the hood in automotive electronics and embedded in various other consumer and industrial applications. So, yes, you guessed it, he’s into technology, knows his way around the semiconductor industry, understands computing, loves his job and never ceases to be amazed by the products and services that ARM delivers to users. 

Andy Frame, CPU Product Manager, ARM 
Andy is based in Cambridge and is fanatical about the success of the Cortex-M3 and how it is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for 32-bit MCU’s. Since joining ARM in 1995, Andy has had a variety of roles from Software Tools Technical Training though to Business Development, joining the CPU product management team about two years ago to look after Cortex-M3.
