Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Embedded Linux provides the reader the information needed to design, develop, and debug an embedded Linux appliance. It explores why Linux is a great choice for an embedded application and what to look for when choosing hardware.

Book News Annotation:

Embedded applications differ from regular computer applications in that there are not the regular keyboard and mouse user interface and the mission of the application is extremely limited. This handbook explains the hardware and software needed for creating embedded applications using the open source operating system Linux. Appropriate to the topic of embedded systems, the author stresses building the smallest possible systems, both in terms of the physical size of the hardware and the size of programs.

About the Author

John Lombardo has been working with Linux since the "0.9" days. His ShareTheNet software product enables a novice user to easily create a highly functional router out of an old x86 computer using Linux. Lately, John has been working on several embedded Linux projects, including easy-to-use IPSEC routers, ARM7-based NAT routers, and this book. John has a BS in Computer Science.
