9780321306388: The Embedded Internet: TCP/IP Basics, Implementation and Applications

In The Embedded Internet Sergio Scaglia examines the techniques that programmers will need to learn to obtain internet connectivity for their embedded systems. Sometimes this will be relatively straight-forward, using TCP/IP stack implementations which already exist. Sometimes, this will be much more difficult, requiring whole new implementations to be developed. Either way, The Embedded Internet will be the ideal starting place for programmers to learn and develop these skills. The book is structured in three parts. The first part comprehensively covers TCP/IP. This gives the reader the necessary background knowledge of the internet that they will need when considering embedded systems connectivity. The second part details how to implement embedded internet systems. The third and final part gives a conceptual overview of just a handful of the countless ways in which internet connectivity can benefit an embedded system.

From the Back Cover:

Embedded systems are an inescapable part of our daily lives. They are found in our domestic appliances; in our cars; in complex medical equipment; in specialised industrial machinery; and even in something as simple as a wristwatch. Our increasing dependence upon these special-purpose systems brings with it a demand for greater sophistication and connecting them to the internet is the next stage in this development. Being internet-enabled allows the system to use the vast resources of the ‘net to perform processes that would have been traditionally too complex for a ‘stand-alone’ version. It also represents the most cost-effective way to control and monitor the system remotely.

Clearly, the need for programmers to learn the special skills required to connect their systems to the internet is growing and will continue to grow into the future. In The Embedded Internet Sergio Scaglia lucidly examines the techniques required to achieve internet connectivity, starting with how to draw upon those TCP/IP implementations which already exist, right through to the more complicated business of developing brand new ones. Using an innovative three part approach (background theory, practical implementation, conceptual overview of applications) he presents everything a programmer will need to know to succeed in this exciting and expanding field.
