The Linux TCP/IP Stack: Networking for Embedded Systems (Networking Series)

Thomas F. Herbert 2004

The Linux TCP/IP Stack: Networking for Embedded Systems provides an in-depth guide to implementing and using the Linux TCP/IP stack in embedded systems projects. It begins with a general overview of TCP/IP networking, with background information on applicable networking standards. From there, it details the TCP/IP implementation in Linux 2.6 by following a packet of data as it flows through the stack from the sending system, out the wire, and back through the input side of the stack in the...

Embedded System Design on a Shoestring

Lewin Edwards 2003

In this practical guide, experienced embedded engineer Lewin Edwards demonstrates faster, lower-cost methods for developing high-end embedded systems. With today's tight schedules and lower budgets, embedded designers are under greater pressure to deliver prototypes and system designs faster and cheaper. Edwards demonstrates how the use of the right tools and operating systems can make seemingly impossible deadlines possible.Designer's Guide to Embedded Systems Development shares many...


TCP/IP Embedded Internet Applications

Edward Insam 2003

Introducing the technology from square one through real-world design applications, this book will significantly reduce R&D time - and spend. Eddie Insam's approach to the internet protocols TCP/IP is to explore their potential as a practical tool for design engineers building web communication and capabilities into embedded systems for the next generation of electronic products.Eddie Insam introduces the range of possibilities open to internet-enabled designs, including automated fault and...


Software and Compilers for Embedded Systems: 7th International Workshop, Scopes 2003, Vienna, Austria, September 2003 :

Scopes 200 2003

This volume contains the proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Software and Compilers for Embedded Systems, SCOPES 2003, held in Vienna, Austria, September 24–26, 2003. Initially, the workshop was referred to as the International Workshop on Code Generation for Embedded Systems. The ?rst workshop took place in 1994 in Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany. From its beg- nings, the intention of the organizers was to create an atmosphere in which the researcherscould participateactively in...


Domain-Specific Processors: Systems, Architectures, Modeling, and Simulation (Signal Processing and Communications, 20)

Shuvra S. Bhattacharyya 2003

Ranging from low-level application and architecture optimizations to high-level modeling and exploration concerns, this authoritative reference compiles essential research on various levels of abstraction appearing in embedded systems and software design. It promotes platform-based design for improved system implementation and modeling and enhanced performance and cost analyses. Domain-Specific Processors relies upon notions of concurrency and parallelism to satisfy performance and cost...


Fault Injection Techniques and Tools for Embedded Systems Reliability Evaluation (Frontiers in Electronic Testing)

Alfredo Benso 2003

This is a comprehensive guide to fault injection techniques used to evaluate the dependability of a digital system. The description and the critical analysis of different fault injection techniques and tools are authored by key scientists in the field of system dependability and fault tolerance.


Ambient Intelligence: Impact on Embedded System Design

Twan Basten 2003

Hugo de Man Professor Katholieke Universiteit Leuven Senior Research Fellow IMEC The steady evolution of hardware, software and communications technology is rapidly transforming the PC- and dot.com world into the world of Ambient Intelligence (AmI). This next wave of information technology is fundam- tally different in that it makes distributed wired and wireless computing and communication disappear to the background and puts users to the foreground. AmI adapts to people instead of the...


Embedded System Design

Peter Marwedel 2003

Until the late eighties, information processing was associated with large mainframe computers and huge tape drives. During the nineties, this trend shifted towards information processing with personal computers, or PCs. The trend towards miniaturization continues. In the future, most of the information processing systems will be quite small and embedded into larger products such as transportation and fabrication equipment. Hence, these kinds of systems are called embedded systems. It is...
