The ARM is at the heart of this trend, leading the way in system-on-chip (SoC) development and becoming the processor core of choice for many embedded applications.
ARM System-on-Chip Architecture introduces the concepts and methodologies employed in designing a system-on-chip based around a microprocessor core, and in designing the core itself.
For example, while the ARM can be coded for in a way similar to the popular x86 line, doing so can lead to very poor code.

 Machine SUIF Back-end for the ARM Architecture
The ARM architecture is the most widespread architecture in the embedded market.
In addition to the target library (i.e., the library that describes the architecture and allows to generate and manipulate code for a given architecture) some optimisation passes have been developed that are designed to improve performance by taking advantage of advanced architectural features.
Generating ARM code is simply done by passing the argument -target_lib arm to the do_gen pass.

 ARM Architecture Support for Operating Systems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The ARM documentation doesn't use the term indirect addressing, but in documentation for other hardware types this would be called an indirect jump (or branch) instruction.
Early versions of the ARM had a 26-bit address space, so any address with a 1 in one of the upper 6 bits would be invalid, and would generate an exception.
When set it indicates the ARM is using the "Thumb" (get it?) instruction set, which encodes a subset of normal ARM instructions in 16-bit instruction codes, for applications where a smaller memory is used to reduce the cost of a device.

 GNU Toolchain for ARM FAQ   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The GNU/Linux toolchains default to the ARM V5T architecture.
The ABI for the ARM Architecture is a standard developed by ARM and its partners (including CodeSourcery) that explains how compilers, assemblers, linkers, and other similar tools should generate object files and executable files.
Tools that correctly implement the ABI for the ARM Architecture can interoperate; i.e., objects files built with one toolchain can be combined with object files built with another toolchain if both compilers use the ABI for the ARM Architecture.
