This book provides readers with a developer's perspective to embedded systems concepts. It examines in detail each of the important theoretical and practical aspects that one must consider when designing today's applications. Readers then are taken from concept to realization as they learn how to apply critical concepts. Throughout the pages, the Verilog language is used as a modeling and synthesis tool to express the hardware implementation, UML and structured design to model the software designs, and the C language to affect the software implementation.

An embedded system is a special-purpose system in which the computer is completely dedicated to the device or system it controls. It performs one or a few pre-defined tasks, usually with very specific requirements. Since it is focused on the few specific tasks, design engineers can benefit from economies of scale, thereby reducing the size and cost.

Special Features:

  • Covers the essential aspects of the hardware and software necessary for design and development
  • Develops the application as a collection of interacting tasks under the management of a real-time operating system
  • Discusses the physical world that includes working with a wide variety of signals
  • Offers a number of laboratory projects of increasing complexity
