1.2 Scope of this document

This document demonstrates the basic steps to use the Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval system. It helps you to learn about the different parts of the flow by:

  1. Running the RTL simulation using the Cycle Model of the Cortex-M3 processor in Cortex-M3 DesignStart Eval.
  2. Using Cortex-M3 DesignStart Eval with the MPS2+ platform.
  3. Compiling code using the ARM mbed™ online toolchain.

This document only provides quick start instructions and does not cover each topic in detail. For detailed information about:

  • System design and RTL simulation, see the ARM® Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval RTL and Testbench User Guide.
  • Building your own FPGA image for the MPS2+ platform, see the ARM® Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval FPGA User Guide.
  • Customization and integrating your own peripherals, see the ARM® Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval Customization Guide.
