Embedded systems are products such as microwave ovens, cars, and toys that rely on an internal microcontroller. This book is oriented toward the design engineer or programmer who writes the computer code for such a system.
There are a number of problems specific to the embedded systems designer, and this book addresses them and offers practical solutions. It offers cookbook routines, algorithms and design techniques and includes tips for handling debugging management and testing. The philosophy of tightly coupling software and hardware in programming and developing an embedded system is explored.
