about this item

This book outlines the major elements that go into embedded operating systems and board support packages (BSPs), and gives readers a strong foundation on which to apply the technology they must master in the future. It describes types of embedded operating systems and demonstrates how they can be implemented within a particular embedded device. Current exciting technology trends within the embedded systems arena are discussed, including the latest examples of real world technologies: references to real-world hardware and software protocols, as well as references to technical specifications, are used.

With this book you will learn:

  • what an embedded operating system is and what a board support package is
  • to understand the main components that make up embedded operating systems, and their internal design
  • how to determine the most suitable embedded operating system for a particular device
  • how to select the best embedded operating system for a particular product, between different real world embedded operating systems available on the market
  • what the main components that make up a board support package (BSP) are, and the internal design of BSPs
  • how to port an embedded operating system from one platform to another, and the importance of a board support package in solving the challenges of porting embedded middleware and application software from one embedded platform
  • design, development and debugging of an embedded operating system and an underlying board support package
  • how to predict the security, robustness and predictability of an embedded system that utilizes a particular embedded operating system design
  • Outlines the entire process of designing embedded operating systems and their underlying board support packages
  • References to real-world hardware and software demonstrate and explain practical ‘know how’, relative to the underlying concepts throughout the entire book
  • Contains numerous real world examples (based on industry software), source code, problems and solutions, references, projects, glossary, and web links with software.
