ARM Assembly for Embedded Applications is intended to be used as a textbook in a sophomore level undergraduate course for students majoring in computer science, computer engineering, or electrical engineering. The book approaches programming in ARM assembly language by writing functions in assembly that are called from a main program written in C. The primary goal of the text is to get students engaged as early as possible. Rather than spending several weeks going over the architecture and detailed instruction set of the processor before having them write programs, the text gets students programming very early in the course by introducing the C/Assembly interface (i.e., function call, parameter passing, return values, register usage conventions) before going into arithmetic, bit manipulation, making decisions, or writing loops. Programming assignments are supported by a free Integrated Development Environment that runs under Microsoft Windows, project templates and a run-time library for displaying text, measuring CPU clock cycle times, drawing graphics, and responding to the touch screen of the target platform. Binary number systems and assembly language programming are covered using regular integer arithmetic, saturating integer arithmetic, and floating-point arithmetic. The text includes extensive treatment of bit manipulation, shifting, extracting and inserting data that is stored in a packed format, as well as chapters on inline coding and programming peripheral devices.
About the Author
Dr. Dan Lewis has served on the faculty of Santa Clara University since 1975. His efforts led to the creation of SCU’s Computer Engineering department in 1988 and he served as the chair of the department for the first 18 years. His recent teaching has focused on introductory programming in C and assembly, with applications to embedded systems. Since 2004, Lewis has worked on K-12 outreach in engineering and computing, supporting his work by raising more than $2.5M in funding provided by National Science Foundation (NSF) grants and private sources. Lewis is the author of three textbooks.
