ARM Cortex-R: What is it good for? Live Event: November 6, 2013 (2:00 PM EST/12:00 PM MST) Texas Instruments participates in OpenSystems Media E-cast

OpenSystems Media (OSM), LLC today announced its upcoming E-cast on ARM Cortex-R moderated by Curt Schwaderer, Technical Editor, OpenSystems Media.

The answer to the question “What is ARM Cortex-R good for?” is fast, deterministic, and functional safety applications. At least, that’s where TI’s ARM Cortex-R cores are utilized – in high performance, real-time microcontrollers made for use in safety applications.

This webinar will discuss the capabilities of the Cortex-R and how it can extend and complement your current investment in ARM Cortex cores.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

• How Cortex-R cores differ from the popular Cortex-M

• How the Cortex-R achieves higher performance than Cortex-M

• Other benefits of the Cortex-R

• What commercial, off-the-shelf micros are available based on the Cortex-R

• Getting started – how to get going quickly with Hercules tools and how they simplify making the switch

Texas Instruments will be available for a Q&A session immediately following the E-cast.

Who: Curt Schwaderer, Technical Editor, OpenSystems Media, Brian Fortman, Product Marking Manager, Hercules MCUs at Texas Instruments, and Neil Werdmuller, ARM Product Manager.

What: Industry experts from Texas Instruments and ARM present a live OpenSystems Media E-cast, “ARM Cortex-R. What is it good for?”

When: Wednesday, November 6, 2013 at (2:00 PM EST/12:00 PM MST)

Where: To attend the E-cast, participants can register for free at
