This 1-hour lecture covers the basics of RISC architectures. Specifically, we will examine the ARM architecture, including the programmer’s model, basic instruction sets, pipelines for the various core families, AMBA, and development tools and resources that are available to students. This presentation is designed to answer questions at the most technical level.
