Expert .Net Micro Framework

Expert .Net Micro Framework Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Microsoft .NET Micro Framework is a small and efficient .NET runtime environment used to run managed code on devices that are too small and resource constrained for Windows CE and the Compact Framework.

Expert .NET Micro Framework will teach you everything you need to know in order to use the .NET Micro Framework to create effective embedded applications. It begins with the basics of accessing hardware and networking before delving deep into the less well?known areas such as cryptography and globalization, and how to use technologies such as wireless communication that are not directly supported by the .NET Micro Framework.

This book is a must if you want to get as much as possible out of the .NET Micro Framework to write powerful embedded applications.

Expert .NET Micro Framework also describes how to use resources, and write globalized and multilingual embedded applications. You will learn how to effectively use binary serialization to store data permanently in flash memory or exchange data with a PDA or PC. Topics like cryptography and encrypted data exchange with a .NET or Compact Framework application are covered. What you?ll learn Describes and compares wireless communication technologies and how to use them even if they are not directly supported by the .NET Micro Framework Describes the whole class library and features of the .NET Micro Framework, illustrated by working examples Demonstrates how to access hardware components with managed drivers and write applications with a graphical user interface Includes a detailed description of how to effectively extend or write hardware emulators using undocumented features of the configuration engine and emulator components Who this book is for

This book is for anyone with an interest in creating embedded systems. Primarily, it is written for the benefit of .NET developers with a background in C#, but it will equally appeal to hardware developers with a background in Assembler, C, or C++ who will be impressed by the benefits that managed code can bring to their devices.

Book News Annotation:

Khner, principal software engineer for Vallon GmbH in Germany and an early adopter of the .NET Micro Framework, provides a detailed examination of the .NET runtime environment in this instructional reference work. The author introduces the .NET Micro Framework and its tools and guides readers through the entire base class library. He follows up with instruction on how to use and write managed drivers to access hardware components, how to use and provide Web services on devices with the Device Profile for Web Services, and how to write applications with rich graphical interfaces. Extensible emulator and emulator components also are addressed. This reference is intended for .NET developers or traditional embedded developers with a background in assemble language C or C++.
