Interested in developing embedded systems? Since they don’t tolerate inefficiency, these systems require a disciplined approach to programming. This easy-to-read guide helps you cultivate a host of good development practices, based on classic software design patterns and new patterns unique to embedded programming. Learn how to build system architecture for processors, not operating systems, and discover specific techniques for dealing with hardware difficulties and manufacturing requirements.Optimize your system to reduce cost and increase performance
Develop an architecture that makes your software robust in resource-constrained environments
Explore sensors, motors, and other I/O devices
Do more with less: reduce RAM consumption, code space, processor cycles, and power consumption
Learn how to update embedded code directly in the processor
Discover how to implement complex mathematics on small processors
Understand what interviewers look for when you apply for an embedded systems job
Written by an expert who’s created embedded systems ranging from urban surveillance and DNA scanners to children’s toys, this book is ideal for intermediate and experienced programmers, no matter what platform you use.
