Linux for Embedded and Real-time Applications, Second Edition

Doug Abbott

This updated second edition of the classic bestseller includes 100+ pages of new material, covering the latest advances in the world of embedded Linux!

Completely updated throughout to cover the many new features of the version 2.6 Linux kernel !

Features all-new chapters on reducing OS size with tiny login and BusyBox, uClinux for microcontrollers without memory management, and the revolutionary Eclipse integrated development environment!

The open source nature of Linux has always intrigued embedded engineers, and the latest kernel releases have provided new features enabling more robust functionality for embedded applications. Enhanced real-time performance, easier porting to new architectures, support for microcontrollers and an improved I/O system give embedded engineers even more reasons to love Linux! However, the rapid evolution of the Linux world can result in an eternal search for new information sources that will help embedded programmers to keep up!

This completely updated second edition of noted author Doug Abbotts respected introduction to embedded Linux brings readers up-to-speed on all the latest developments. This practical, hands-on guide covers the many issues of special concern to Linux users in the embedded space, taking into account their specific needs and constraints.

Youll find updated information on:

' The GNU toolchain

' Configuring and building the kernel

' BlueCat Linux

' Debugging on the target

' Kernel Modules

' Devices Drivers

' Embedded Networking

' Real-time programming tips and techniques

' The RTAI environment

' And much more

The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the source code from the books examples, helpful software and other resources to help you get up to speed quickly. This is still the reference youll reach for again and again!

Synopsis:

While the technologies of real-time embedded systems continue their rapid evolution, the Linux world develops at a similarly frenetic pace. This new edition of Doug Abbott’s solid introduction to embedded Linux will bring the book back to the cutting-edge. The embedded market for Linux has continued to expand--recent research indicates that Linux is fast-becoming the OS of choice for embedded systems. This book will still provide a reader-friendly overview, and the updates to the new edition will ensure significantly bolstered coverage of the basics. Plus, the author will include all new chapters on memory management with uClinux, the Eclipse environment, and reducing OS size. Discussion throughout is based on the newest Linux kernel and OS releases.

BENEFIT TO THE READER: Professionals in this rapidly changing field will need the new edition of this book in order to keep up with the latest developments in the implementation of Linux for real-time and embedded applications.
