9780080977683: Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design: Applying the ARM mbed

This title provides: a hands-on introduction to the field of embedded systems; a focus on fast prototyping of embedded systems; all key embedded system concepts covered through simple and effective experimentation; an understanding of ARM technology, one of the world's leaders; a practical introduction to embedded C; and, applies possibly the most accessible set of tools available in the embedded world. This book is an introduction to embedded systems design, using the ARM mbed and C programming language as development tools. The mbed provides a compact, self-contained and low-cost hardware core, and the on-line compiler requires no download or installation, being accessible wherever an internet link exists. The book further combines these with a simple "breadboard" approach, whereby simple circuits are built up around the mbed, with no soldering or pcb assembly required. The book adopts a "learning through doing" approach. Each chapter is based around a major topic in embedded systems. The chapter proceeds as a series of practical experiments; the reader sets up a simple hardware system, develops and downloads a simple program, and immediately observes and tests the outcomes. The book then reflects on the experimental results, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the technology or technique introduced, explores how precise the link is between theory and practice, and considers applications and the wider context. This is the only book that explains how to use ARM's mbed development toolkit to help the speedy and easy development of embedded systems. It teaches embedded systems core principles in the context of developing quick applications, making embedded systems development an easy task for the non specialist who does not have a deep knowledge of electronics or software. It provides all key concepts that are covered through simple and effective experimentation. Note:This is a black and white book,

Product Description:

Title: Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Rob Toulson <>Publisher: Elsevier Science & Technology

Review:

"The authors address a wide range of topics, including digital and analog input and output, interrupts, LCDs, and digital signal processing. The book provides deep insights into computer architecture, memory management, and input/output processes…Overall, this is a great book for computer hobbyists, embedded systems engineers, and students." --ComputingReviews.com, October 2013

"Toulson…and Wilmshurst…explain how to program circuits on ARM's mbed microprocessor-based hardware platform and provide instructions for building a digital-to-analog converter, serial data links, and a liquid crystal display." --Reference and Research Book News, February 2013

Book Description ELSEVIER SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 190 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design is a fast-moving introduction to embedded system design, applying the innovative ARM mbed and its web-based development environment. Each chapter introduces a major topic in embedded systems, and proceeds as a series of practical experiments, adopting a learning through doing strategy. Minimal background knowledge is needed. C/C++ programming is applied, with a step-by-step approach which allows the novice to get coding quickly. Once the basics are covered, the book progresses to some hot embedded issues - intelligent instrumentation, networked systems, closed loop control, and digital signal processing. Written by two experts in the field, this book reflects on the experimental results, develops and matches theory to practice, evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the technology or technique introduced, and considers applications and the wider context. Numerous exercises and end of chapter questions are included. Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780080977683
