Making Embedded Systems: Design Patterns for Great Software

Making Embedded Systems - Design Patterns for Great Software by Elecia White

Interested in developing embedded systems? Since they do not tolerate inefficiency, these systems require a disciplined approach to programming. This easy-to-read guide helps you cultivate a host of good development practices, based on classic software design patterns and new patterns unique to embedded programming. Learn how to build system architecture for processors, not operating systems, and discover specific techniques for dealing with hardware difficulties and manufacturing requirements.

Written by an expert who has created embedded systems ranging from urban surveillance and DNA scanners to children's toys, this book is ideal for intermediate and experienced programmers, no matter what platform you use.

  • Optimize your system to reduce cost and increase performance
  • Develop an architecture that makes your software robust in resource-constrained environments
  • Explore sensors, motors, and other I/O devices
  • Do more with less: Reduce RAM consumption, code space, processor cycles, and power consumption
  • Learn how to update embedded code directly in the processor
  • Discover how to implement complex mathematics on small processors
