Meet the Author

Ed Sutter started his career with AT&T Bell Labs in 1981. Now a distinguished member of the technical staff (DMTS) at Lucent, he has been working in embedded systems since 1983. Starting with the 8085, Ed has worked with a wide range of systems over the years including most of today's common CPU architectures. He has put his experience in developing hardware, firmware, and software to good use by building several different development environments. While he is most comfortable with C and assembly language on embedded systems, he has developed code for Win32 and Unix varieties as well. His firmware tools have recently been the subjects of articles in Embedded Systems Programming and Circuit Cellar OnLine magazines.
