For junior/senior-level courses in Embedded Systems, Microprocessor Applications, and Microcomputer-Based Design in the department of Electronics Engineering Technology.This practical text on designing real-time embedded systems using 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers covers both assembly and C programming and real-time kernels. Using a large number of specific examples, it focuses on the concepts, processes, conventions, and techniques used in design and debugging.
This text provides a comprehensive look at embedded microcontrollersspecialized devices used for a variety of applications and which include a memory, a microprocessor, and an I/O interface. Embedded Microcontrollers is one of the first books based on the Motorola MC68HC12. It is for use in any microcontroller course covering embedded systems, or for anyone who wants to design small to medium-sized embedded systems.
From a wealth of practical experience, the author has prepared a work that fills a significant void, both for learning the new MC68HC12 and for learning the fundamentals of embedded real-time applications. For the novice or the experienced, this text provides essential, up-to-date information as well as practical tipsall in a format and style that are engaging and easily understood.
