MicroC/OS II Second Edition describes the design and implementation of the MicroC/OS-II real-time operating system (RTOS). In addition to its value as a reference to the kernel, it is an extremely detailed and highly readable design study particularly useful to the embedded systems student. While documenting the design and implementation of the kernel, the book also walks the reader through the many related development issues: how to adapt the kernel for a new microprocessor, how to install the kernel, and how to structure the applications that run on the kernel. This edition features documentation for several important new features of the software, including new real-time services, floating points, and coding conventions. The accompanying downloadable resources include complete code for the MicroC/OS-II kernel.
