CHAPTER 5 Memory Systems
In This Chapter:
The Cortex-M3 processor has a different memory architecture from that of traditional ARM processors. First, it has a predefined memory map that specifies which bus interface is to be used when a memory location is accessed. This feature also allows the processor design to optimize the access behavior when different devices are accessed.
Another feature of the memory system in the Cortex-M3 is the bit-band support. This provides atomic operations to bit data in memory or peripherals. ...
