Starting Embedded Linux Development on an Arm Architecture : Developing Applications Using the Arm Ds-5
about this item
This book provides a unified, coordinated path for embedded developers starting out in embedded Linux programming. It takes a tutorial-style approach, and is unique in using the DS-5 Integrated Development Environment (IDE), matched with ARM’s architecture, to create a complete guide from installation to developing simple applications. Through clear, concise and accessible explanation and examples, this book kick starts embedded Linux development in the most practical way possible.
With this book you will learn:
• What embedded Linux can do for you, and how to achieve particular development goals
• How to set up and install the development environment
• The very basics of embedded Linux, starting with toggling I/O pins
• How to use the Linux command line to perform basic tasks
• How to debug code
• Profiling and performance tuning
• How to use TCP/IP and USB interfaces in Linux.
Jump the learning curve with this tutorial-style introduction: go from basic set-up to developing complete applications, with examples throughout.
• The only book to approach embedded Linux with a particular development focus: the DS-5 IDE speeds up the learning process whilst focusing on the requirements of embedded applications, such as low level hardware access & TCP/IP socket communication.
• Companion website includes a demo version of the Keil DS-5 tools, including a full IDE, cross compiler, debugger, profiler, hardware simulator and example applications enabling you to get started immediately.
