10.2. Memory map considerations

A major consideration in the design of an Embedded ARM application is the layout of the memory map, in particular the memory that is situated at address 0x0. Following reset, the core starts to fetch instructions from 0x0, so there must be some executable code accessible from that address. In an embedded system, this requires ROM to be present, at least initially.
