ARM System-on-Chip Architecture is a book detailing the system on a chip ARM architecture, as a specific implementation of reduced instruction set computing.[1] It was written by Steve Furber, who co-designed the ARM processor with Sophie Wilson.[2]

The book's content covers the architecture, assembly language programming, support mechanisms for high-level programming languages, the instruction set and the building of operating systems. The Thumb instruction set is also covered in detail.[3]

It has been cited in numerous academic papers,[4] and has been recommended to those working in the development of embedded systems.[5]
