Embedded Microcomputer Systems: Real Time Interfacing provides an in-depth discussion of the design, implementation and testing of embedded microcomputer systems. This book covers the hardware aspects of interfacing, advanced software topics (including interrupts), and a systems approach to typical embedded applications. This text stands out from other microcomputer systems books because of its balanced, in-depth treatment of both hardware and software issues important in real time embedded systems design. It features a wealth of detailed case studies that demonstrate basic concepts in the context of actual working examples of systems. It also features a unique simulation software package on the bound-in CD-ROM (called Test Execute and Simulate, or TexaS, for short) -- that provides a self-contained software environment for designing, writing, implementing, and testing both the hardware and software components of embedded systems. This second edition also features revised example problems, and improved illustrations and introductions.
