Eager to transfer your C language skills to the 8-bit microcontroller embedded environment? This book will get you up and running fast with clear explanations of the common architectural elements of most 8-bit microcontrollers and the embedded-specific de


Embedded Microcontroller Interfacing for M-CORE Systems (with CD-ROM)

G. Jack Lipovski 2000

The "M·CORE" family of microprocessors is the latest 32-bit integrated circuit from Motorola designed to be a multi-purpose "micro-controller." The processor architecture has been designed for high performance and cost-sensitive embedded control applications with particular emphasis on reduced power consumption. This is the first book on the programming of the new language instruction set using the M·CORE chip.Embedded Microcontroller Interfacing for M·CORE Systems is the third of a trio...


Computers as Components: Principles of Embedded Computer Systems Design (With CD-ROM)

Wayne Wolf 2000

The vast majority of existing computers are embedded in the myriad of intelligent devices and applications-not in desktop machines. We are witnessing the emergence of a new discipline with its own principles, constraints, and design processes.

Computers as Components is the first book to teach this new discipline. It unravels the complexity of these systems and the tools and methods necessary for designing them. Researchers, students, and savvy professionals, schooled in hardware or software,...


System-on-a-Chip Verification - Methodology and Techniques

Prakash Rashinkar 2000

This is the first book to cover verification strategies and methodologies for SOC verification from system level verification to the design sign-off. All the verification aspects in this exciting new book are illustrated with a single reference design for Bluetooth application.


ARM System-on-Chip Architecture (2nd Edition)

Steve Furber 2000

The future of the computer and communications industries is converging on mobile information appliances - phones, PDAs, laptops and other devices. The ARM is at the heart of this trend, leading the way in system-on-chip (SoC) development and becoming the processor core of choice for many embedded applications. System-on-chip technology is changing the way we use computers, but it also sets designers the very challenging problem of getting a complex SoC design right first time. ARM...


Embedded Microcontrollers

Todd D. Morton 2000

Chapter topics include programming basics; simple assembly code construction; CPU12 programming model; basic assembly programming techniques; assembly program design and structure; assembly...


Embedded Microcomputer Systems: Real Time Interfacing

Jonathan W. Valvano 2000

This book provides an in-depth discussion of the design, implementation and testing of embedded microcomputer systems. The book covers the hardware aspects of interfacing, advanced software topics (including interrupts), and a systems approach to typical embedded applications. This book stands out from other microcomputer systems books because of its balanced, in-depth treatment of both hardware and software issues important in real time embedded systems design. The book features a wealth of...


Programming and Customizing the 8051 Microcontroller

Myke Predko 1999

Ready-to-build 8051 microcontroller projects--at your fingertips. Probably the most successful microcontroller on the market today, Intel's legendary 8051 lives on in enhanced versions sold by more than 20 chip manufacturers. Packed with over 30 experiments using Dallas Semiconductor's "HSM" flavors of the 8051 plus the Atmel AT89Cx051 "Flash" based versions, Myke Predko's Programming and Customizing the 8051 Microcontroller puts you in control of the 8051's architecture and instruction...
