9780080977683: Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design: Applying the ARM mbed

  • A hands-on introduction to the field of embedded systems;
  • A focus on fast prototyping of embedded systems;
  • All key embedded system concepts covered through simple and effective experimentation;
  • An understanding of ARM technology, one of the world's leaders;
  • A practical introduction to embedded C;
  • Applies possibly the most accessible set of tools available in the embedded world.

 This book is an introduction to embedded systems design, using the ARM mbed and C programming language as development tools.

The mbed provides a compact, self-contained and low-cost hardware core, and the on-line compiler requires no download or installation, being accessible wherever an internet link exists. The book further combines these with a simple "breadboard" approach, whereby simple circuits are built up around the mbed, with no soldering or pcb assembly required.

The book adopts a "learning through doing" approach. Each chapter is based around a major topic in embedded systems. The chapter proceeds as a series of practical experiments; the reader sets up a simple hardware system, develops and downloads a simple program, and immediately observes and tests the outcomes. The book then reflects on the experimental results, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the technology or technique introduced, explores how precise the link is between theory and practice, and considers applications and the wider context.

    • The only book that explains how to use ARM's mbed development toolkit to help the speedy and easy development of embedded systems.
    • Teaches embedded systems core principles in the context of developing quick applications, making embedded systems development an easy task for the non specialist who does not have a deep knowledge of electronics or software
    • All key concepts are covered through simple and effective experimentation

    Product Description:

    Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design is a fast-moving introduction to embedded system design, applying the innovative ARM mbed and its web-based development environment. Each chapter introduces a major topic in embedded systems, and proceeds as a series of practical experiments, adopting a "learning through doing" strategy. Minimal background knowledge is needed. C/C++ programming is applied, with a step-by-step approach which allows the novice to get coding quickly. Once the basics are covered, the book progresses to some "hot" embedded issues - intelligent instrumentation, networked systems, closed loop control, and digital signal processing.

    Written by two experts in the field, this book reflects on the experimental results, develops and matches theory to practice, evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the technology or technique introduced, and considers applications and the wider context. Numerous exercises and end of chapter questions are included.




      • A hands-on introduction to the field of embedded systems, with a focus on fast prototyping
      • Key embedded system concepts covered through simple and effective experimentation
      • Amazing breadth of coverage, from simple digital i/o, to advanced networking and control
      • Applies the most accessible tools available in the embedded world
      • Supported by mbed and book web sites, containing FAQs and all code examples
      • Deep insights into ARM technology, and aspects of microcontroller architecture
      • Instructor support available, including power point slides, and solutions to questions and exercises

      About the Author:

      Dr Rob Toulson is Director of The Sound and Audio Engineering Research Group at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU). Rob is also Pathway Leader for MSc Audio and Video Technology and he lectures on Electronics and Audio and Music Technology undergraduate pathways. He holds a PhD in the field of digital signal processing (awarded by ARU in 2004) and a first degree in Mechanical Engineering from Loughborough University (1999). Dr Toulson has a number of year's industrial experience in digital signal analysis, control systems design, rapid prototyping, and model based design, as well as commercial experience in sound engineering and music production. He is supervisor for a number of funded knowledge transfer and research projects at ARU, as well as an active PhD student supervisor.

      Tim Wilmshurst is the author of Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers. He has been designing embedded systems since the early days of microcontrollers. For many years this was for Cambridge University, where he led a development team building original systems for research applications - for example in measurement of bullet speed, wind tunnel control, simulated earthquakes, or seeking a cure to snoring. Now he is Head of Electronic Systems at the University of Derby, where he aims to share his love of engineering design with his students.
