Security for embedded and IoT applications has become crucial. How can you protect your products from hackers or virus attacks?
ARM v8-M is a new family of processors with proven TrustZone technology. First implemented in ARM11 and Cortex-A, it is now available in Cortex-M processors. The first devices are Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33, and will be shipping from various semiconductor companies starting in 2018.

A live demonstration of a non-secure function calling and secure function and returning. An Arm Fast Model simulator will be used. You will be able to replicate this as no hardware is used. Compiler hints using AC6 LLVM based will be discussed as well as a survey of RTX requirements and other software components.


You will gain a general understanding of how v8-M operates and how to create secure and non-secure memory areas for your functions. You will be able to step through an example program and inspect the program flow.
