Knowing your ARM from your ARSE: wading through the technology terminology of an embedded SoC

Modern SoC designs incorporate technologies from numerous vendors, each with their own  inconsistent, confusing, undocumented and even contradictory terminology. The result is a mess of acronyms and product names which have a surprising impact on the ability to develop reusable, modular code thanks to the nature of the underlying IP being obscured.

This presentation will dive into some of the misnomers plaguing the Arm ecosystem, with the aim of explaining why things are like they are, how they fit together under the architectural umbrella and how you, as a developer, can decipher the baffling ingredients list of your next SoC design!
