商品描述

  • Hardware/Software Partitioning
  • Cross-Platform Development
  • Firmware Debugging
  • Performance Analysis
  • Testing & Integration

Get into embedded systems programming with a clear understanding of the development cycle and the specialized aspects of writing and testing software in this environment. Learn how to apply your development skills to new software and hardware tools you'll need to work effectively in this cross-development environment.

Learn the design considerations unique to embedded systems, a few of which include:

  • Processor selection for optimal cost, system performance, and testability
  • Software failure, the need for testing, and the use of the watchdog timer
  • Writing code that directly manipulates the device hardware
  • Code placement and memory space limitations
  • Parallel HW/SW development and the hazards of system integration
  • The need for dedicated debugging circuitry
  • Tool requirements and the implications of tool intrusion

You get the key methods and technologies for each phase of the development process: specification, partition, design, integration, validation, and maintenance and upgrade. With these you will be able to:

  • Appreciate the consequences of early design decisions
  • Anticipate the potential pitfalls you may encounter in this new environment
  • Make more effective use of embedded systems tools
  • Survive the challenges in the parallel development process

And you will be prepared for the challenges of integrating your untested software with untested hardware by effectively using logic analyzers and ICEs (integrated circuit emulators) in basic debugging and test coverage measurement.

Dr. Arnold Berger holds a Ph.D. in materials science from Cornell University. During his years at Hewlett-Packard, he served as project manager for the HP64700 family of PC-based emulators and worked on the Teramac, an FPGA-based reconfigurable hardware accelerator. He subsequently managed third party tool support for AMD's 29K line of embedded microprocessors and served as director of research and development at toolmaker Applied Microsystems Corporation. Most recently he has assumed a full-time teaching role at University of Washington at Bothell, where he is helping to define and establish an embedded systems curriculum.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

硬體/軟體分割
跨平台開發
韌體除錯
效能分析
測試與整合

以清晰的理解嵌入式系統程式設計進入,並了解在這個環境中撰寫和測試軟體所需的專業知識。學習如何將開發技能應用於新的軟體和硬體工具,以在這個跨開發環境中有效地工作。

學習嵌入式系統獨特的設計考量,其中一些包括:

選擇處理器以達到最佳成本、系統效能和可測試性
軟體故障、測試需求和看門狗計時器的使用
編寫直接操作設備硬體的程式碼
程式碼放置和記憶體空間限制
並行的硬體/軟體開發和系統整合的風險
需要專用的除錯電路
工具需求和工具介入的影響

您將獲得開發過程的每個階段的關鍵方法和技術:規格、分割、設計、整合、驗證和維護和升級。有了這些,您將能夠:

理解早期設計決策的後果
預見在這個新環境中可能遇到的潛在問題
更有效地使用嵌入式系統工具
在並行開發過程中應對挑戰

並且您將通過有效地使用邏輯分析儀和集成電路仿真器(ICE)進行基本的除錯和測試覆蓋率測量,為將未經測試的軟體與未經測試的硬體整合的挑戰做好準備。

Dr. Arnold Berger擁有康奈爾大學材料科學的博士學位。在惠普公司的多年期間,他擔任HP64700系列基於個人電腦的仿真器的項目經理,並參與了Teramac,一個基於FPGA的可重構硬體加速器的開發。隨後,他負責管理AMD的29K系列嵌入式微處理器的第三方工具支援,並擔任工具製造商Applied Microsystems Corporation的研發總監。最近,他全職擔任華盛頓大學Bothell分校的教學工作,協助定義和建立嵌入式系統課程。
