Embedded Media Processing Book Excerpt:

In the past, embedded engineers needed to utilize a combination of traditional microcontrollers and DSP's (digital signal processors) in order to produce optimal designs for use in multimedia applications. However, this multiprocessor design technique is tough to implement, because it requires the engineer to write twice the code. Further, the designs resulting from such a marriage are limited because two processors cost more, take up more physical space, require more memory, and use up more power than just one would. And so a new kind of processor, the EMP (embedded media processor), was born! An embedded media processor combines the best aspects of a traditional microncontroller and a DSP for use in a multimedia product. As the demand grows for smaller, faster, multifunction, portable embedded products, such as video-enabled cellphones and pda's that play music or games, EMP's become more popular. As a result, an increasing number of engineers need to migrate from using multiprocessor methods to using EMP's in their designs. This book is the one-stop shop for the many engineers who need to understand what embedded media processors can do, and how to implement them. KEY FEATURES: comprehensive subject coverage with emphasis on practical application essential assembly language code included throughout many real-world examples using Analog's popular Blackfin Processor architecture This book provides information that engineers cannot get anywhere else. The discussion of EMP's is general enough to assure that engineers using any EMP, not just the Blackfin, will benefit from it. The book's in-depth analysis will allow engineers to decrease product development times and increase robust design for applications in multimedia. For about $50, the engineer is equipped by the experts and empowered to succeed.

Theory and Engineering of Dependable Computer Systems and Networks Book Excerpt:

This book contains papers on selected aspects of dependability analysis in computer systems and networks, which were chosen for discussion during the 16th DepCoS-RELCOMEX conference held in Wrocław, Poland, from June 28 to July 2, 2021. Their collection will be a valuable source material for scientists, researchers, practitioners and students who are dealing with design, analysis and engineering of computer systems and networks and must ensure their dependable operation. Being probably the most complex technical systems ever engineered by man (and also—the most dynamically evolving ones), organization of contemporary computer systems cannot be interpreted only as structures built on the basis of (unreliable) technical resources. Their evaluation must take into account a specific blend of interacting people (their needs and behaviours), networks (together with mobile properties, cloud organization, Internet of Everything, etc.) and a large number of users dispersed geographically and constantly producing an unconceivable number of applications. Ever-growing number of research methods being continuously developed for dependability analyses apply the newest techniques of artificial and computational intelligence. Selection of papers in these proceedings illustrates diversity of multi-disciplinary topics which are considered in present-day dependability explorations.
