Overview

Steve Heath's design masterclass covers the practical hardware and software issues, and the design trade-offs of real-world system design.

In Embedded Systems Design Steve Heath leads the reader through the design choices involved in system design. The key technologies and applications are introduced in the context of the design process - selection, trade-offs and pitfalls. Detailed consideration is given to processor architectures, memory types, interrupts and their associated software systems, real-time operating systems and software development.

In the second edition the latest ARM processors and other hardware developments are fully covered along with new sections on Embedded Linux, performance analysis and benchmarking. In addition, a fascinating new case study explores how embedded systems can be developed and experimented with using nothing more than a standard MS-DOS PC and freeware software.

Audience: Embedded systems engineers / programmers, electronic engineers, control systems engineers, students of electronic and software engineering.
