Design Methods and Applications for Distributed Embedded Systems (IFIP International Federation for Information Processi

Bernd Kleinjohann 2004

The ever decreasing price/performance ratio of microcontrollers makes it economically attractive to replace more and more conventional mechanical or electronic control systems within many products by embedded real-time computer systems. An embedded real-time computer system is always part of a well-specified larger system, which we call an intelligent product. Although most intelligent products start out as stand-alone units, many of them are required to interact with other systems at a...

Analog and Digital Circuits for Electronic Control System Applications : Using the TI MSP430 Microcontroller

Jerry Luecke 2004

Today's control system designers face an ever-increasing "need for speed” and accuracy in their system measurements and computations. New design approaches using microcontrollers and DSP are emerging, and designers must understand these new approaches, the tools available, and how best to apply them.This practical text covers the latest techniques in microcontroller-based control system design, making use of the popular MSP430 microcontroller from Texas Instruments.The book covers all the...

Building Clustered Linux Systems (Hewlett-Packard Professional Books (Paperback))

Robert W. Lucke 2004

Praise for Building Clustered Linux Systems

"The author does an outstanding job of presenting a very complicated subject. I very much commend this work. The author sets the pace and provides vital resources and tips along the way. He also has a very good sense of humor that is crafted in the text in such a way that makes the reading enjoyable just when the subject may demand a break. This book should be a requirement for those that are clustering or considering clustering and especially...

Real Time UML : Advances in the UML for Real-Time Systems (3rd Edition) (Addison-Wesley Object Technology Series)

Bruce Powel Douglass 2004

Praise for Real Time UML, Third Edition


“I found Real Time UML, Third Edition, to provide an informative and practical application of UML 2.0 to the development of real-time systems, and well worth the read by systems and software engineers. It is written in plain English and provides the right balance of depth and breadth.”
