According to Niall Cooling, CEO at Feabhas, software engineers no only need to be able to write complex code they also need to fit that code onto chips.
“To ensure our C++11 /14 and C11 delegates get the most from the latest techniques and state-of-the-art tools, we have introduced STM32F4 ARM Cortex M4-based microcontrollers to our practical exercises.”
Feabhas chose the STM32F4 series because it is based on an ARM core and includes features suitable for high-performance, deeply embedded systems, such as: a high-speed, powerful core, lots of memory, Ethernet connectivity, integrated digital signal processing (DSP) and floating point unit (FPU) instructions.
“These capabilities will enable our delegates to be among the first to enjoy a practical classroom experience of using up-to-date tool-chain for both C++11/14 and C11 in an embedded target system,” said Cooling.
The company ran its first C++ course earlier this month using these MCUs.
