DSP Software Development Techniques for Embedded and Real Time Systems Book Excerpt:

Today's embedded and real-time systems contain a mix of processor types: off-the-shelf microcontrollers, digital signal processors (DSPs), and custom processors. The decreasing cost of DSPs has made these sophisticated chips very attractive for a number of embedded and real-time applications, including automotive, telecommunications, medical imaging, and many others—including even some games and home appliances. However, developing embedded and real-time DSP applications is a complex task influenced by many parameters and issues. DSP Software Development Techniques for Embedded and Real-Time Systems is an introduction to DSP software development for embedded and real-time developers giving details on how to use digital signal processors efficiently in embedded and real-time systems. The book covers software and firmware design principles, from processor architectures and basic theory to the selection of appropriate languages and basic algorithms. The reader will find practical guidelines, diagrammed techniques, tool descriptions, and code templates for developing and optimizing DSP software and firmware. The book also covers integrating and testing DSP systems as well as managing the DSP development effort. Digital signal processors (DSPs) are the future of microchips! Includes practical guidelines, diagrammed techniques, tool descriptions, and code templates to aid in the development and optimization of DSP software and firmware

This volume contains the proceedings of the ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on L- guages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems (LCTES 2000), held June 18, 2000, in Vancouver, Canada. Embedded systems have developed consid- ably in the past decade and we expect this technology to become even more important in computer science and engineering in the new millennium. Interest in the workshop has been con rmed by the submission of papers from all over the world. There were 43 submissions representing more than 14 countries. Each submitted paper was reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The expert opinions of many outside reviewers were in- luable in making the selections and ensuring the high quality of the program, for which, we express our sincere gratitude. The nal program features one invited talk, twelve presentations, and ve poster presentations, which re?ect recent - vances in formal systems, compilers, tools, and hardware for embedded systems. We owe a great deal of thanks to the authors, reviewers, and the members of the program committee for making the workshop a success. Special thanks to Jim Larus, the General Chair of PLDI 2000 and Julie Goetz of ACM for all their help and support. Thanks should also be given to Sung-Soo Lim at Seoul National University for his help in coordinating the paper submission and review process. We also thank Professor Gaetano Borriello of the University of Washington for his invited talk on Chinook, a hardware-software co-synthesis CAD tool for embedded systems.

Divided into two volumes to accommodate this growth, the Embedded Systems Handbook, Second Edition presents a comprehensive view on this area of computer engineering with a currently appropriate emphasis on developments in networking and applications. Those experts directly involved in the creation and evolution of the ideas and technologies presented offer tutorials, research surveys, and technology overviews that explore cutting-edge developments and deployments and identify potential trends. This first self-contained volume of the handbook, Embedded Systems Design and Verification, is divided into three sections. It begins with a brief introduction to embedded systems design and verification. It then provides a comprehensive overview of embedded processors and various aspects of system-on-chip and FPGA, as well as solutions to design challenges. The final section explores power-aware embedded computing, design issues specific to secure embedded systems, and web services for embedded devices. Those interested in taking their work with embedded systems to the network level should complete their study with the second volume: Network Embedded Systems.

Model Based Engineering of Embedded Real Time Systems Book Excerpt:

Thetopicof“Model-BasedEngineeringofReal-TimeEmbeddedSystems”brings together a challenging problem domain (real-time embedded systems) and a - lution domain (model-based engineering). It is also at the forefrontof integrated software and systems engineering, as software in this problem domain is an essential tool for system implementation and integration. Today, real-time - bedded software plays a crucial role in most advanced technical systems such as airplanes, mobile phones, and cars, and has become the main driver and - cilitator for innovation. Development, evolution, veri?cation, con?guration, and maintenance of embedded and distributed software nowadays are often serious challenges as drastic increases in complexity can be observed in practice. Model-based engineering in general, and model-based software development in particular, advocates the notion of using models throughout the development and life-cycle of an engineered system. Model-based software engineering re- forces this notion by promoting models not only as the tool of abstraction, but also as the tool for veri?cation, implementation, testing, and maintenance. The application of such model-based engineering techniques to embedded real-time systems appears to be a good candidate to tackle some of the problems arising in the problem domain.
