    During the past few years there has been an dramatic upsurge in research and development, implementations of new technologies, and deployments of actual solutions and technologies in the diverse application areas of embedded systems. These areas include automotive electronics, industrial automated systems, and building automation and control. Comprising 48 chapters and the contributions of 74 leading experts from industry and academia, the Embedded Systems Handbook, Second Edition presents a comprehensive view of embedded systems: their design, verification, networking, and applications. The contributors, directly involved in the creation and evolution of the ideas and technologies presented, offer tutorials, research surveys, and technology overviews, exploring new developments, deployments, and trends. To accommodate the tremendous growth in the field, the handbook is now divided into two volumes.

    New in This Edition:

    • Processors for embedded systems
    • Processor-centric architecture description languages
    • Networked embedded systems in the automotive and industrial automation fields
    • Wireless embedded systems

    Embedded Systems Design and Verification

    Volume I of the handbook is divided into three sections. It begins with a brief introduction to embedded systems design and verification. The book then provides a comprehensive overview of embedded processors and various aspects of system-on-chip and FPGA, as well as solutions to design challenges. The final section explores power-aware embedded computing, design issues specific to secure embedded systems, and web services for embedded devices.

    Networked Embedded Systems

    Volume II focuses on selected application areas of networked embedded systems. It covers automotive field, industrial automation, building automation, and wireless sensor networks. This volume highlights implementations in fast-evolving areas which have not received proper coverage in other publications. Reflecting the unique functional requirements of different application areas, the contributors discuss inter-node communication aspects in the context of specific applications of networked embedded systems.

    Zurawski has done a good job given the scope of the topic ESH addresses. The book broadly covers embedded systems and also delves deeply into specific new areas of interest. … ESH will indisputably be valuable to many different readers. A reader new to embedded systems but grounded in software and computer architecture would have a broad and solid understanding of embedded systems after finishing the book. A seasoned embedded-systems technologist will gain an understanding of new application areas and new ways of addressing old problems more efficiently. ESH is a valuable tool offering something to almost everyone in the field.
