The author carefully takes into account the special concerns found in designing and developing embedded applications specifically concurrency, communication, speed, and memory usage. Patterns are given in UML (Unified Modeling Language) with examples including ANSI C for direct and practical application to C code.
A basic C knowledge is a prerequisite for the book while UML notation and terminology is included. General C programming books do not include discussion of the contraints found within embedded system design. The practical examples give the reader an understanding of the use of UML and OO (Object Oriented) designs in a resource-limited environment. Also included are two chapters on state machines. The beauty of this book is that it can help you today. .

The Designer's Guide to the Cortex-M Processor Family - A Tutorial Approach (Paperback): Trevor Martin The Designer's Guide to the Cortex-M Processor Family - A Tutorial Approach (Paperback)

R1,069 Discovery Miles 10 690 Within 7 - 15 working days

The Designer s Guide to the Cortex-M Family is a tutorial-based book giving the key concepts required to develop programs in C with a Cortex M- based processor. The book begins with an overview of the Cortex- M family, giving architectural descriptions supported with practical examples, enabling the engineer to easily develop basic C programs to run on the Cortex- M0/M0+/M3 and M4. It then examines the more advanced features of the Cortex architecture such as memory protection, operating modes and dual stack operation. Once a firm grounding in the Cortex M processor has been established the book introduces the use of a small footprint RTOS and the CMSIS DSP library.

With this book you will learn:

The key differences between the Cortex M0/M0+/M3 and M4 How to write C programs to run on Cortex-M based processors How to make best use of the Coresight debug system How to do RTOS development The Cortex-M operating modes and memory protectionAdvanced software techniques that can be used on Cortex-M microcontrollers How to optimise DSP code for the cortex M4 and how to build real time DSP systems
An Introduction to the Cortex microcontroller software interface standard (CMSIS), a common framework for all Cortex M- based microcontrollers Coverage of the CMSIS DSP library for Cortex M3 and M4 An evaluation tool chain IDE and debugger which allows the accompanying example projects to be run in simulation on the PC or on low cost hardware"

Analog Design and Simulation using OrCAD Capture and PSpice (Paperback): Dennis Fitzpatrick Analog Design and Simulation using OrCAD Capture and PSpice (Paperback)

R1,467 Discovery Miles 14 670 Within 7 - 15 working days

Analog Design and Simulation using OrCAD Capture and PSpice provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the Cadence/OrCAD family of Electronic Design Automation software for analog design and simulation. Organized into 22 chapters, each with exercises at the end, it explains how to start Capture and set up the project type and libraries for PSpice simulation. It also covers the use of AC analysis to calculate the frequency and phase response of a circuit and DC analysis to calculate the circuits bias point over a range of values. The book describes a parametric sweep, which involves sweeping a parameter through a range of values, along with the use of Stimulus Editor to define transient analog and digital sources. It also examines the failure of simulations due to circuit errors and missing or incorrect parameters, and discusses the use of Monte Carlo analysis to estimate the response of a circuit when device model parameters are randomly varied between specified tolerance limits according to a specified statistical distribution. Other chapters focus on the use of worst-case analysis to identify the most critical components that will affect circuit performance, how to add and create PSpice models, and how the frequency-related signal and dispersion losses of transmission lines affect the signal integrity of high-speed signals via the transmission lines. Practitioners, researchers, and those interested in using the Cadence/OrCAD professional simulation software to design and analyze electronic circuits will find the information, methods, compounds, and experiments described in this book extremely useful.
