Book Description

Considered a standard industry resource, the Embedded Systems Handbook provided researchers and technicians with the authoritative information needed to launch a wealth of diverse applications, including those in automotive electronics, industrial automated systems, and building automation and control. Now a new resource is required to report on current developments and provide a technical reference for those looking to move the field forward yet again. Divided into two volumes to accommodate this growth, the Embedded Systems Handbook, Second Edition presents a comprehensive view on this area of computer engineering with a currently appropriate emphasis on developments in networking and applications. Those experts directly involved in the creation and evolution of the ideas and technologies presented offer tutorials, research surveys, and technology overviews that explore cutting-edge developments and deployments and identify potential trends.

This first self-contained volume of the handbook, Embedded Systems Design and Verification, is divided into three sections. It begins with a brief introduction to embedded systems design and verification. It 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.

Those interested in taking their work with embedded systems to the network level should complete their study with the second volume: Network Embedded Systems.

… This first volume of the handbook is an in-depth survey of embedded systems design and verification. This volume is essential reading especially for novices in this field for it provides a framework for the discussion of the design issues of embedded systems, formal methods, embedded systems architectures and security as well as web services. Also, the book may be highly recommended for professionals as well as lecturers and students of academic courses on the rapidly progressing field of networks-on-chips.
