Advanced processors can be broken into two broad categories. Ordinary microprocessors (μP) use separate integrated circuits for memory and peripherals. Microcontrollers (μC) have on-chip peripherals, thus reducing power consumption, size and cost.
Numerous microcontrollers have been developed for embedded systems use. General-purpose microprocessors are also used in embedded systems, but generally require more support circuitry than microcontrollers.
This course takes you through the world of todays most important breed of processors- ARM Processors, along with their development, features, real world interfacing and the embedded communication systems as well as DSP Processors
