I have finally finished and sent off my presentation for next weeks Hitex one-day ARM User Conferences titled “ARM – the new standard across the board?” at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull.
Back in February, at the embeddedworld exhibition and conference in Nuremberg, Germany, ARM announced the latest version (version 3) of the Cortex(tm) Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS). The major addition is the introduction of an abstraction layer for Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS).
The presentation I’m giving explains; what the abstraction layer offers, how it maps on to an underlying RTOSs API (e.g. ARM/Keil’s RTX), and what is required to re-target another RTOS.
If you can’t make the event (I would recommend it if you can, the last one had a lot of very useful information), then I plan to make the presentation available as a slide deck and a narrated video after the event, so watch this space.
