Real-Time Embedded Components And Systems: With Linux And RTOS

This book is intended to provide a senior undergraduate or graduate student in electrical engineering or computer science with a balance of fundamental theory, review of industry practice, and hands-on experience to prepare for a career in the real-time embedded system industries. It is also intended to provide the practicing engineer with the necessary background to apply real-time theory to the design of embedded components and systems. Typical industries include aerospace, medical diagnostic and therapeutic systems, telecommunications, automotive, robotics, industrial process control, media systems, computer gaming, and electronic entertainment, as well as multimedia applications for general-purpose computing. This updated edition adds three new chapters focused on key technology advancements in embedded systems and with wider coverage of real-time architectures. The overall focus remains the RTOS (Real-Time Operating System), but use of Linux for soft real-time, hybrid FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) architectures and advancements in multi-core system-on-chip (SoC), as well as software strategies for asymmetric and symmetric multiprocessing (AMP and SMP) relevant to real-time embedded systems, have been added. Companion files are provided with numerous project videos, resources, applications, and figures from the book. Instructors’ resources are available upon adoption.

The code on the CD itself is well worth the money! I like the author's apporach of balancing the real time theory and its application. Having worked with C++ and real time application in the past 10 years, this book tought me something that I didn't learn from anywhere else (RMA, VxWorks, Video driver...). For any serious hard real time application developers, this book is highly recommended!

Charles River Media is always a guarantee.One of the rare works on the 'eliterian' VxWorks RTOS. The teaching style from the University of Colorado a real gem !Source code examples cover most of the VxWorks API's.General theory of RTOS's combined with performace issues are the introducing chapters.Digital control, robotics and digital video and audio applications are dedicated and extremely clear chapters of this work.Real world examples, full of code and videoclips related to the subjects discussed in the book.
