The book covers CPU design, operating systems, multiprocessor programs and architectures, and much more. Embedded computing is a key component of cyber-physical systems, which combine physical devices with computational resources for control and communication. This revised edition adds new content and examples of cyber-physical systems throughout the book, including design methodologies, scheduling, and wide-area CPS to illustrate the possibilities of these new systems.Revised and updated with coverage of recently developed consumer electronics architectures and models of computingIncludes new VLIW processors such as the TI Da Vinci, and CPU simulation Learn model-based verification and middleware for embedded systems Supplemental material includes lecture slides, labs, and additional resources
It can be used as a course for juniors or seniors in computer engineering and electrical engineering, and can also be used to teach students in other scientific disciplines important concepts in computing. For electrical engineering, the book provides the fundamentals of computing that link core concepts to computing. For computer science, it provides foundations of key challenges such as power consumption, performance, and thermal. The book can also be used as a technical reference by professionals.Links fundamental physics to the key challenges in computer design, including memory wall, power wall, reliabilityProvides all of the background necessary to understand the physical underpinnings of key computing conceptsCovers all the major physical phenomena in computing from transistors to systems, including logic, interconnect, memory, clocking, I/O
Like the previous editions, this textbook uses real processors to demonstrate both technology and techniques; shows readers how to apply principles to actual design practice; stresses necessary fundamentals that can be applied to evolving technologies; and helps readers gain facility to design large, complex embedded systems. Updates in this edition include: description of cyber-physical systems; exploration of the PIC and TI OMAP processors; high-level representations of systems using signal flow graphs; enhanced material on interprocess communication and buffering in operating systems; and design examples that include an audio player, digital camera, and cell phone. The author maintains a robust ancillary site at http://www.marilynwolf.us/CaC3e/index.html which includes a variety of support materials for instructors and students, including PowerPoint slides for each chapter; lab assignments developed for multiple systems including the ARM-based BeagleBoard computer; downloadable exercises solutions and source code; and links to resources and additional information on hardware, software, systems, and more.
This book will appeal to students in an embedded systems design course as well as to researchers and savvy professionals schooled in hardware or software design.Description of cyber-physical systems: physical systems with integrated computation to give new capabilitiesExploration of the PIC and TI OMAP multiprocessorsHigh-level representations of systems using signal flow graphsEnhanced material on interprocess communication and buffering in operating systemsDesign examples include an audio player, digital camera, cell phone, and more
Programming an MPSoC requires the generation of efficient software running on MPSoC from a high level environment, by using the characteristics of the architecture. This task is known to be tedious and error prone, because it requires a combination of high level programming environments with low level software design.
This book gives an overview of concepts related to embedded software design for MPSoC. It details a full software design approach, allowing systematic, high-level mapping of software applications on heterogeneous MPSoC. This approach is based on gradual refinement of hardware/software interfaces and simulation models allowing to validate the software at different abstraction levels.
This book combines Simulink for high level programming and SystemC for the low level software development. This approach is illustrated with multiple examples of application software and MPSoC architectures that can be used for deep understanding of software design for MPSoC.
