Embedded Systems Architecture is a tour de force: a book on building embedded systems that truly deserves to be called “definitive.” Tammy Noergaard starts with first principles, then systematically illuminates everything from logic circuits and computer design to C and assembly programming.
Noergaard thoroughly walks you through every stage of designing and implementing an embedded system that will work reliably -- and profitably. Whether you’re reading datasheets, writing device drivers, or managing projects that transcend your area of expertise, you’ll find help here.
Noergaard’s career has ranged from Stanford to Berkeley, from Wind River to Sony (where she helped build some of the world’s best analogue TVs). Along the way, she’s picked up immense knowledge about building embedded systems and teaching others to do so. You’ll benefit mightily from that knowledge. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
