Real-Time Embedded Multithreading: Using Threadx® And Arm®
Synopses & Reviews
Its relative simplicity and robust multithreading capabilities have made the Thread X/ARM processor combination the favored RTOS/processor combination among developers of real-time multithreaded embedded systems. Real-Time Embedded Multithreading is a complete guide for the developer or student. Beginning with a discussion of general concepts and terminology, it moves on to a specific demonstration system for illustration, investigates the salient features of the reference processor, thoroughly explores the services and features of the reference RTOS, and culminates with a major case study. Sample chapters include "The Thread ? The Essential Component," "Memory Management: Byte Pools and Block Pools," and "Thread Communication with Message Queues." Pitfalls and problem areas are discussed, and possible solutions are offered. Perfect for embedded systems programmers, software engineers, electrical engineers, or firmware engineers with a programming background in C or C++, the book examines many ways in which the reference processor and the reference RTOS can be optimally combined. The book includes a CD featuring a Win32-based ThreadX demonstration system capable of processing all the sample systems, end-of-chapter projects, and a case study.
Book News Annotation:
Assuming C or C++ programming experience, this textbook walks through the process of developing embedded computer systems, introduces the advanced RISC machine (ARM) processor and services available in the ThreadX real-time operating system (RTOS), and develops a sample real-rime video/audio/motion recording system for automobiles. The CD-ROM contains a demonstration version of the Win32-based ThreadX system.
