Designing Embedded Hardware by John Catsoulis

By John Catsoulis

Good, it isn't a ebook for knowledgeable engineers. however it is a brilliant ebook for the programmers within the embedded process team.
the writer brief introduce the elemental of electronics, strength, and SPI bus, I2C bus, UART serial port first and foremost. regrettably, he talks too little of IrDA, USB, CAN bus in the midst of this e-book. although the ICs he used is seldom appear in Taiwan, and also you can't determine a embedded method after studying it. besides, it's very worthwhile for the programmer to understand the company of the engineers. i feel the programmers should still obtained one.
i admire the latter of this booklet. the writer in short introduce (Microchip) PIC, (ATMEL) AVR, (Motorolla) 68HC11, (Dallas) MAXQ, (Motorola) DSP6800/68000 CPU from bankruptcy 14 to 19.
most vital is that he basically clarify what the "memory administration unit (MMU)" precisely be performed within the digital point and scheme. so much software program programmer study the MMU from Linux kernel -system name, and feature no concept of what it really works within the digital scheme/ICs. the writer express you these items fairly frankly.
it's nice!

Many microcontrollers also have analog inputs, allowing sensors to be sampled for monitoring or recording purposes. Thus, an embedded computer may measure light levels, temperature, vibration or acceleration, air or water pressure, humidity, or magnetic field, to name just some. Alternatively, the analog inputs may be used to monitor simple voltages, perhaps to ensure the reliable operation of a larger system. Some microcontrollers have serial ports, which enable the embedded computer to be interfaced to a host computer, a modem, another embedded system, or perhaps a simple network.

We are free to ignore the sign bit and treat the byte as an unsigned number, giving us a range of 0x00 to 0xFF (255 decimal). It all depends on what we want the byte to represent. 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit signed numbers work in the same way. The most significant bit represents the sign, and the remaining bits constitute the number. 4. Addressing Modes The different ways in which an instruction can reference a register or memory location are known as the addressing modes of the processor. The types of addressing modes available within different architectures vary.

EPROMs and their equivalent OTP cousins range in capacity from a few kilobytes (exceedingly rare these days) to a megabyte or more. The drawback with EPROM technology is that the chip must be removed from the circuit to be erased, and the erasure can take many minutes to complete. The chip is then inserted into the burner, loaded with software, and then placed back in-circuit. This can lead to very slow debug cycles. Further, it makes the device useless for storing changeable system parameters.
