Embedded systems: desktop integration. This book explores designing embedded systems and monitoring and controlling them from desktop systems. Through the step-by-step development of an embedded thermostat, readers learn how to implement three different hardware interfaces: rs-232, USB, and Ethernet. Several different components are used to provide the reader with alternative hardware solutions. Additionally, three different types of microcontrollers are used to implement the intelligence in the thermostat: the basic stamp, the DSP, and the Cypress psoc. Monitor and control software is developed for Windows, Linux, and the BSD operating systems. Several cross-platform tools are explored including Windows, Borland Delphi and kylix, and builders, and there is even a section on how to make your own printed circuit boards.
