Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design : Applying the Arm Mbed (Paperback) (Rob Toulson)
About this item
Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design: Applying the ARM mbed is a fast-moving introduction to embedded systems design, with emphasis on 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 that allows you 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 and techniques introduced, and considers applications in a wider context.
New Chapters on: Bluetooth and Wifi communication; Internet communication and control with particular reference to ‘Internet of Things’; Low level programming and controlling communications and timing through direct register addressing; Testing and evaluating the available mbed platforms including the Freescale FRDM (Cortex M0) and the NXP LPC4008 (Cortex M4) boards; and mbed RTOS.
