Modern Embedded Computing: Designing Connected, Pervasive, Media-Rich Systems
Modern Embedded Computing: Designing Connected, Pervasive, Media-Rich Systems provides a thorough understanding of the platform architecture of modern embedded computing systems that drive mobile devices. The book offers a comprehensive view of developing a framework for embedded systems-on-chips. Examples feature the Intel Atom processor, which is used in high-end mobile devices such as e-readers, Internet-enabled TVs, tablets, and net books.
This is a unique book in terms of its approach - moving towards consumer. It teaches readers how to design embedded processors for systems that support gaming, in-vehicle infotainment, medical records retrieval, point-of-sale purchasing, networking, digital storage, and many more retail, consumer and industrial applications. Beginning with a discussion of embedded platform architecture and Intel Atom-specific architecture, modular chapters cover system boot-up, operating systems, power optimization, graphics and multi-media, connectivity, and platform tuning. Companion lab materials complement the chapters, offering hands-on embedded design experience.
This text will appeal not only to professional embedded system designers but also to students in computer architecture, electrical engineering, and embedded system design.
