Embedded RTOS Design. Insights and Implementation

  • Book

  • December 2020
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 5018888
Embedded RTOS Design: Insights and Implementation combines explanations of RTOS concepts with detailed, practical implementation. It gives a detailed description of the implementation of a basic real-time kernel designed to be limited in scope and simple to understand, which could be used for a real design of modest complexity. The kernel features upward-compatibility to a commercial real-time operating system: Nucleus RTOS. Code is provided which can be used without restriction.

Gain practical information on:

- Scheduling, preemption, and interrupts

- Information flow (queues, semaphores, etc.) and how they work

- Signaling between tasks (signals, events, etc.)

- Memory management (Where does each task get its stack from? What happens if the stack overflows?)

- The CPU context: storage and retrieval after a context switch

With this book you will be able to:

- Utilize a basic real-time kernel to develop your own prototype

- Design RTOS features

- Understand the facilities of a commercial RTOS

Please Note: This is an On Demand product, delivery may take up to 11 working days after payment has been received.
