Overview

Embedded Systems Architecture is a practical and technical guide to understanding the components that make up an embedded system’s architecture. This book is perfect for those starting out as technical professionals such as engineers, programmers and designers of embedded systems; and also for students of computer science, computer engineering and electrical engineering. It gives a much-needed ‘big picture’ for recently graduated engineers grappling with understanding the design of real-world systems for the first time, and provides professionals with a systems-level picture of the key elements that can go into an embedded design, providing a firm foundation on which to build their skills.

  • Real-world approach to the fundamentals, as well as the design and architecture process, makes this book a popular reference for the daunted or the inexperienced: if in doubt, the answer is in here!
  • Fully updated with new coverage of FPGAs, testing, middleware and the latest programming techniques in C, plus complete source code and sample code, reference designs and tools online make this the complete package
  • Visit the companion web site at http://booksite.elsevier.com/9780123821966/ for source code, design examples, data sheets and more


  • A true introductory book, provides a comprehensive get up and running reference for those new to the field, and updating skills: assumes no prior knowledge beyond undergrad level electrical engineering
  • Addresses the needs of practicing engineers, enabling it to get to the point more directly, and cover more ground. Covers hardware, software and middleware in a single volume
  • Includes a library of design examples and design tools, plus a complete set of source code and embedded systems design tutorial materials from companion website

The Barnes & Noble Review
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

From the Publisher
Review of the previous edition: "This book fills a void. Most books address only portions of the embedded problem. As the title indicates, this one is uniquely comprehensive. I consider it a must-read" —Jack Ganssle, embedded author, lecturer, consultant
