80251 Microcontroller, The

Kenneth J. Ayala 1999

This book explores the 80251 microcontroller—an update of the industry standard 8051 featuring new components that enhance its programming in C. Despite the attractiveness of the C programming language, the author emphasizes assembly code programming as a foundational skill for embedded controller programmers and system designers. Coverage opens with a tutorial on fundamental computer operation and programming, waiting until late in the text to examine C programming concepts and examples....


See MIPS Run

Dominic Sweetman 1999

The versatile offspring of an extended family of multiple chip companies, today's MIPS chips are everywhere. They power everything from videogames, network routers, laser printers, set-top boxes, and high-performance workstations. This book brings together this extraordinary proliferation of form and functionality, offering embedded systems programmers and designers unique, eminently practical insights into MIPS. It covers how MIPS started, the principles at the root of the RISC...

Design of Embedded Systems Using 68HC12/11 Microcontrollers

Richard E. Haskell 1999

This is the first book to describe, in detail, the new Motorola 68HC12 microcontroller, how to program it, and how to design embedded systems using the 68HC12. It shows how WHYP (a version of Forth written specifically for this book) can be used to program the new 68HC12 microcontroller in an efficient and interactive way. It includes an abundance of worked examples and complete C++ code for the WHYP host that runs on the PC. Subroutines and Stacks. 68HC12 Arithmetic. WHYP-An ...


8051 Microcontroller and Embedded Systems, The

Muhammad Ali Mazidi 1999

This book uses a step-by-step approach to teach the fundamentals of assembly language programming and interfacing of the 8051 microcontroller. Simple, concise examples are utilized to show what action each instruction performs, then a sample is provided to show its application. For anyone interested in learning about the 8051 microcontroller.


VHDL Coding Styles and Methodologies

Ben Cohen 1999

VHDL Coding Styles and Methodologies, Edition is a follow up book to the first edition of same book and to VHDL Answers to Frequently Asked Questions, first and second editions. This book was originally written as a teaching tool for a VHDL training course. The author began writing the book because he could not find a practical and easy to read book that gave in depth coverage of both, the language and coding methodologies. This edition provides practical information on reusable software...

An Embedded Software Primer

David E. Simon 1999

  "I sincerely wish (this book) had been available when I had to learn all this stuff the hard way."--Steve Vinoski "An excellent job of introducing and defining the jargon associated with embedded systems. This makes the text extremely easy to read." --David Cuka

An Embedded Software Primer is a clearly written, insightful manual for engineers interested in writing embedded-system software. The example-driven approach puts you on a fast track to understanding embedded-system...


Flow Design for Embedded Systems: A Radical New Unified Object-Oriented Methodology

Barry Kauler 1998

In Flow Design for Embedded Systems, the author has created a unified object-oriented methodology that can be applied to any microprocessor and language. Two tools are included: a GUI CASE tool for Windows 3.x/9X combining design, system specification, coding, and implementation; and TERSE, an interrupt-driven OS for building designs.


Itron 3.0: An Open and Portable Real-Time Operating System for Embedded Systems : Concept and Specification

Ken Sakamura 1998

This text describes the ITRON 3.0 Specification, concentrating on its open specification that achieves both real-time performance and wide adaptability. This specification looks to meet the need for strict cost requirements and limited hardware resources for low-end applications.
