About this course

Skip About this course

A basic understanding of the assembly language with RISC-V is vital for hardware-related programming. Tasks like debugging and identifying performance-critical program sections are easier to achieve with the foundations of Assembly.

This course is designed for software developers who want to understand what instructions a RISC-V microprocessor finally executes for any software running on it. While this is an introductory course, developers should have a basic understanding of programming concepts and methodologies in order to benefit from the course material.
