Improve Your ARM Development
Let our extensive experience with the ARM family of microprocessors help your product development. ThreadX, our high-performance real-time kernel, helps improve your product's quality and its time-to-market. In addition, using ThreadX makes it easier to enhance your product in the future.
ThreadX optimizes context switching on the ARM. When context switching occurs inside of a ThreadX service call, only the registers preserved across function calls are saved as part of the thread's context, i.e. registers v1-v7, fp, and lr.
A similar technique is used in interrupt handling. On the front end of interrupt service routines, only the compiler's scratch registers are saved initially (registers a1-a4). The full register set is saved only if thread preemption is required.
Easy Mixed-Mode Programming
ThreadX fully supports the 16-bit Thumb and Thumb-II extensions of the ARM architecture. Using ThreadX, developers can freely build their applications in Thumb and/or traditional 32-bit mode.
Flexible FIQ Interrupt Handling
By default, ThreadX leaves FIQ interrupts alone. This results in zero FIQ interrupt latency. However, in this configuration application FIQ processing is not allowed to call ThreadX services. ThreadX can also be configured to provide complete FIQ-support, which provides the application FIQ handler access to ThreadX services.
Nested Interrupt Handling
ThreadX can also be configured to support nested interrupt handling - for both IRQ and FIQ interrupt sources.

Ranked one of the top three must-attend events in the embedded industry, ARM® TechCon™ is more than a conference. ARM TechCon’s unique 360-degree interactive training ground is seeded to connect, instruct, advise and enable the world of electronic and ARM-based computer design, and provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of ARM-based technology.
22nd - 23rd OCTOBER 2014, Jaguar Exhibition Hall • Ricoh Arena • Coventry, UK
The Embedded Design Show will offer a focused event for the embedded industry. Embedded specialists will have both exhibitors and technical content specifically tailored for their interests. A dedicated conference programme will address issues of direct relevance to the embedded sector, while a workshop theatre will host both technical and application-based presentations.
26th International Trade Fair, for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications, Messe Munchen, November 11-14, 2014.
