Making Embedded Systems

Eager to develop embedded systems? These systems don’t tolerate inefficiency, so you may need a more disciplined approach to programming. This easy-to-read book helps you cultivate a host of good development practices, based on classic software design patterns as well as new patterns unique to embedded programming. You not only learn system architecture, but also specific techniques for dealing with system constraints and manufacturing requirements.

Written by an expert who’s created embedded systems ranging from urban surveillance and DNA scanners to children’s toys, Making Embedded Systems is ideal for intermediate and experienced programmers, no matter what platform you use.

  • Develop an architecture that makes your software robust and maintainable
  • Understand how to make your code smaller, your processor seem faster, and your system use less power
  • Learn how to explore sensors, motors, communications, and other I/O devices
  • Explore tasks that are complicated on embedded systems, such as updating the software and using fixed point math to implement complex algorithms
