William Hohl


ARM announces a technical seminar specifically for university students, staff, and others interested at CMU. In about an hour, the workshop covers the company business model, ARM processors and architectures, programmer’s models, the ARM Instruction Set Architecture, basic system design, core pipelines, power issues, development tools, and a demonstration of the latest ARM technology. The seminar is free to students, faculty, and others.

If you are an engineering or computer science student studying hardware or software, computer architecture / organization, embedded, real-time systems / applications, microprocessors/MCUs, low-power applications, robotics, mechatronics, or you’re starting a project, you will find this short course useful. Think of it as a crash course on ARM.


William Hohl has been with ARM for nearly 14 years, first as a principal designer on the ARM10 design team, then as head of US support operations, and now as Worldwide University Relations Manager. Previously he worked at Motorola's High-End Processor Division with the 68040 design team, then helping to design the first generation of ColdFire 68K processors. Prior to that, he worked at Texas Instruments as an Applications Engineer in the DSP and ASIC divisions. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and the author of ARM Assembly Language - Fundamentals and Techniques. He holds an MSEE and BSEE from Texas A&M University, as well as 6 US patents.
