Real-Time Embedded Components and Systems US$59.95

Real-Time Embedded Components and Systems

Sam Siewert has written Real-Time Embedded Components and Systems, a practical and primer about how to apply real-time theory to get products to market quicker, with fewer problems, and better performance. The first portion of the book provides background on the origins of real-time theory including rate monotonic and dynamic scheduling. From there it explores the use of rate monotonic theory for hard real-time applications commonly used in aircraft flight systems, satellites, telecommunications, and medical systems.

Engineers also learn about dynamic scheduling for use in soft real-time applications such as video on demand, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), and video gaming. Sample code is presented and analyzed based upon Linux and VxWorks operating systems running on a standard Intel architecture PC. Finally, readers will be able to build working robotics, video, machine vision, or VoIP projects using low-cost resources and approaches to gain hands on real-time application experience.
