Embedded Internet Design explores how to make microcontroller systems that are Internet-active. The book covers two fundamental approaches: using a Java-programmable module, and using a Scenix SX (a traditional, assembly language processor). The advantages are two-fold. First, the Java module allows simple exposition of key Internet concepts. However, most designers that will produce production volumes will be interested in moving on to a less-expensive microcontroller like the SX. Full of practical projects, this book gives the practitioner the experience needed to tackle Internet designs with confidence. The book provides knowledge of the internal working of the Internet, programming in Java, and other skills necessary to design Internet-aware devices. This book will be of special interest to those who have a good grounding in hardware, but don't know the internals of how network and Internet applications work. Java programmers who want more information on embedded hardware will also find the book invaluable.
