Cortex-A76 Software Development

Course Objectives

Cortex-A76 MPCore software development is a 4 days ARM official course.
The course goes into great depth and provides all necessary know-how to develop software for systems based on Cortex-A76 processors.  
The course introduces the ARMv8-A architecture, instruction set, and the new model to handle interrupts and exceptions.
The course continues by covering the Cortex-A76 MPCore architecture based on DynamIQ technology, memory management unit, memory model, cache and branch prediction, cache coherency, processes synchronization, boot process, barriers, virtualization, Generic Interrupt Controller (GIC), System MMU (SMMU), power management, debug, security, RAS support, and DynamIQ Shared Unit (DSU).
