Seventeen-year-old Thomas Van Zandt has finally figured out how to safely bring his extraordinary inner abilities outside his own body to help others. He can hook up his nervous system to someone else and help them heal. It’s heady stuff, this healing business, and sometimes, Thomas feels like he’s playing God.But God doesn’t make mistakes. And Thomas is not God.Tessa, Thomas’s girlfriend, has Huntington’s Disease, a rare genetic disorder that will soon turn her brain to mush. Thomas can heal her symptoms, but to cure her, he must figure out how to alter her genetics. So he starts experimenting on himself…And in a moment of crisis, Thomas makes a huge mistake: He accidentally replaces his genes with Tessa’s and loses his ability to control his autonomic nervous system.When Thomas discovers that his friend Tyrion has been growing human babies in the lab as specimens, and that the resulting research could bring back his abilities and also save Tessa, he’s faced with a decision:Is Tessa’s life and his abilities worth sacrificing his principles?AND, is it right to sacrifice a few for the good of the many?

This book is self-published and is printed on demand. The original ISBN was generated in 2012, but if you purchase the book new from CreateSpace or Amazon you will get the new version, which was uploaded January 3, 2017. This book, now in its fourth edition (January 2017), is the third in a series of three books that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems as applied to ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers. This book specifically covers the TM4C and MSP432 microcontrollers; however, it could be used with any Cortex-M microcontroller. This third volume is primarily written for senior undergraduate or first-year graduate electrical and computer engineering students. It could also be used for professionals wishing to design or deploy a real-time operating system onto an ARM platform. The first book Embedded Systems: Introduction to the ARM Cortex-M Microcontroller is an introduction to computers and interfacing focusing on assembly language and C programming. The second book Embedded Systems: Real-Time Interfacing to ARM Cortex-M Microcontroller focuses on interfacing and the design of embedded systems. This third book is an advanced book focusing on operating systems, high-speed interfacing, control systems, robotics, Bluetooth, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Rather than buying and deploying an existing OS, the focus is on fundamental principles, so readers can write their-own OS. Embedded systems are a ubiquitous component of our everyday lives. We interact with hundreds of tiny computers every day that are embedded into our houses, our cars, our toys, and our work. As our world has become more complex, so have the capabilities of the microcontrollers embedded into our devices. An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. Specific topics include microcontrollers, design, verification, hardware/software synchronization, interfacing devices to the computer, real-time operating systems, data collection and processing, motor control, analog filters, digital filters, and real-time signal processing. This book employs many approaches to learning. It will not include an exhaustive recapitulation of the information in data sheets. First, it begins with basic fundamentals, which allows the reader to solve new problems with new technology. Second, the book presents many detailed design examples. These examples illustrate the process of design. There are multiple structural components that assist learning. Checkpoints, with answers in the back, are short easy to answer questions providing immediate feedback while reading. Simple homework questions provide more detailed learning opportunities. The book includes a glossary so that information can be searched. The most important learning experiences in a class like this are of course the laboratories. More detailed lab descriptions are available on the web. Specifically for Volume 1, look at the lab assignments for EE319K. For Volume 2 refer to the EE445L labs, and for this volume, look at the lab assignments for EE445M/EE380L.6. There is a web site accompanying this book http://users.ece.utexas.edu/~valvano/arm. Posted here are Keil uVision projects for each the example programs in the book. You will also find data sheets and Excel spreadsheets relevant to the material in this book. The book will cover embedded systems for the ARM Cortex-M with specific details on the MSP432, TM4C123, and TM4C1294. Most of the topics can be run on any of these Texas Instruments LaunchPads. Ethernet examples can be run on the TM4C1294. Although the solutions are specific for the MSP432/TM4C families, it will be possible to use this book for other Cortex-M derivatives.

There are several new features that will significantly increase your productivitiy, improve your life and your business.Windows 10 is a smart hybrid operating system which is designed to eliminate the gap in between mobile and desktop platforms. The first attempt for such objective was made by Microsoft with its Windows 8 release. Windows 10 is also the current operating system product and is a work in progress type of software. That is, all the other software launched in this category were a one-time release, however, Windows 10 is not just another version of windows that will fade away with time, instead of releasing new windows product, Microsoft will be adding new features to Windows 10 itself. Hence, as there will be no new windows product release by Microsoft again, Windows 10 is known as the last version of windows. With windows features addition via updating, people won’t have to worry about backing up their data again whenever they have to upgrade the operating system of their machine. Moreover, Windows 10 is the fastest and smartest windows product ever made by Microsoft. In this book, you will exactly learn why it is so and also learn everything that you need to know about Windows 10, from its upgrade requirements to its features and tricks.Windows Vista lacked in usability and user-friendliness, Windows 7 was alright but never a user-favourite. Windows 8 and 8.1. had many more flaws, primarily the lack of start menu. Windows 10 tries to address all of these issues, and it does so pretty successfully. In our book, we will show you just what makes Windows 10 great for you.Here's what you'll learn in this book:
- Difference between Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10
