Hello,

I have to do a school project using ARM microprocessor. The teacher didn’t define clearly what we have to do, but he said that could be something like a SoC, using an ARM Core and implementing it on a FPGA or a board system using an ARM microcontroller or microprocessor. In both situations we have to write some code using the assembly language.

Does somebody have any idea? Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you!

Cris2

arm7 project source code

Hi

A greate idea is to dcode MP3 file using the arm core (without hardware decoder)

The arm UC is powerfull to the job

I have a C source code D/L from the net but never tested it

I can up load if you want

Re: ARM microprocessor project

ARM processors are powerful usually when RTOS are incorporated for use and/or when sophisticated I/O devices are interfaced such as CMOS or CCD Camera, GSM/GPRS Chip, GPS Chip, Colour LCD Module.

As a processor itself running some general programs like those that you can easily run in 68HC11 and PIC18 microcontrollers doesnt make ARM Processor special, instead only make ARM processor looks under-used.

Microcontrollers are good enough for ordinary student projects.

ARM Processors are targetted for high-end processing such as those you might find mobile phones, PDAs, digital camera and ecetra.

Therefore to hit a project that actually exploits the power of an ARM processor, aim at those high-end interfaces. ARM Processor usually controls other processing devices such as DSP Processors and FPGAs to perform Image Processing, Speech Processing or even Video Processing.

As you can see, ARM Processor is more of a Master processor that control a number of Slave processors or memory devices rather than actually perform the specific tasks.

Re: School project using ARM microprocessor

Thank you, for this link, it is very good. I don’t know yet what I want to do, maybe after looking at several sites like the one you referred I’ll get a better idea about what could be done and what can I do. I’m in process of learning about the ARM microprocessor and not a specialist on this field. The worst think is that I have to decide now what the project will be about and not at the end of the course when I probably have more knowledge, so I hope that more experimented persons will help on this.

Re: ARM microprocessor project

Hi Bobi,

It will be nice if you upload the C source code and if you have some hardware associated with it that will help more.

Many thanks to everyone answering to this topic.
