Product Description

Review

"The Cortex-M is well on the way to becoming an industry standard architecture for embedded systems, he warns, and knowledge of it is becoming a requisite skill for professional developers. He also explains techniques used to develop application software to run on it."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013

About the Author

Trevor Martin graduated from Brunel University in 1988 with an Honors degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In the same year he began work as a Junior Hardware engineer at Philips Medical Systems. He joined Hitex in 1992 as a Technical specialist for 8 Bit Microcontroller development tools. This included the 8051,68HC11\05\08 microcontrollers. He also gained experience with networking protocols such as CAN,USB and TCP/IP. Since 2000 he has been supporting ARM based microcontrollers, initially ARM7 and ARM9 CPU then moving to Cortex-M processor. To promote these devices he has worked closely with both NXP and ST and also TI and Freescale to a lesser extent. Since 2005 he has written a number of Insiders Guide? Books which are introductory tutorials to ARM based microcontroller families such as LPC2000, STR9 and STM32. He also runs regular training courses, a general Cortex Microcontroller workshop and also device specific courses.

I bought the ebook version and began working through the examples, which I found to be good. However, I was struggling to set aside time to cover the material and so I booked myself onto the two-day training course run by Trevor (the author) at Hitex UK. The training covers all the material in the book with day two devoted to the RTX RTOS and day one to the rest of the material. I found this a great help and am now confidently embarking on my first commercial ARM based project. The training is very reasonably priced and you come away with a printed paperback copy of the book, plus a memory stick with all the examples and the presentation material and a time-limited full evaluation copy of Meil MDK-ARM IDE. Back to the book: the text guides you through the Cortex-M features by tutorial examples that can be run and debugged in the free Keil MDK-ARM IDE. The material progresses logically and works its way towards using the free RTX RTOS. Much of the material is generic to all Cortex-M MCUs, but there is a chapter devoted to DSP on the Cortex-M4 series. Most of the examples can be run and debugged in the simulator included with the IDE, including those for the RTOS and the DSP. Finally, there's a chapter on using a ULINK debugger to debug on the hardware itself via the CoreSight debug connection. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to get started fast using the Cortex-M microcontrollers.

This is an excellent book, lots of useful information and well written.

There are currently some issues with the source code downloaded from the publisher for the tutorial in chapter 2.

I emailed Trevor Martin about this and he was very helpful. The correct source code has been sent to the publisher so it should be updated on their web site soon. In the meantime you can email him and he will send you the correct code.

Highly recommended.

If you are familiar with microcontrollers in general but not the Cortex M series in particular, then this book is a good introductory guide. The writing could be better. Simple but insuccinct sentences are much in evidence as is the occasional malapropism. (Unfortunately the more you know about the innards of microcontrollers, the more you are likely to be prone to write in geeky English - Nuff said.) If you need to get to grips with the details of the internals this book is probably not enough and should be supplemented by Joseph Liu's book in the same Newnes series.

This is an excellent introduction to the intricacies of the Cortex-M processors. Unfortunately the first downloaded example project using the Keil MDK fails to compile as it is missing four of the eight required source files. People familiar with the Keil MDK and other ARM processors will not worry about this, but converts from the eight bit world like myself may find it frustrating. One star lost then, but still recommended.
