Real-time Operating Systems: Book 1 - The Theory (The engineering of real-time embedded systems)

https://www.amazon.com/Real-time-Operating-Systems-engineeri...
Eleven 5-star reviews at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GO6VSGEThis book deals with the fundamentals of operating systems for use in real-time embedded systems. It is aimed at those who wish to develop RTOS-based designs, using either commercial or free products. It does not set out to give you the knowledge to design an RTOS; leave that to the specialists. The target readership includes:Students.Engineers, scientists and mathematicians moving into software systems.Professional and experienced software engineers entering the embedded field.Programmers having little or no formal education in the underlying principles of software-based real-time systems.The material covers the key ‘nuts and bolts’ of RTOS structures and usage (as you would expect, of course). In many cases it shows how these are handled by practical real-time operating systems. After studying this even the absolute beginner will see that it isn’t particularly difficult to implement RTOS-based designs and should be confident to take on such work. Now, that’s the easy part; the really challenging aspect is how to best structure the application software in the first place. If your design is poorly-structured then, no matter which RTOS you use, you are very likely to run into problems of reliability, performance, safety and maintainability. Hence the book places great emphasis on ways to structure the application software so that it can be effectively implemented using an RTOS. The author: Jim Cooling has had many years experience in the area of real-time embedded systems, including electronic, software and system design, project management, consultancy, education and course development. He has published extensively on the subject, his books covering many aspects of embedded-systems work such as real-time interfacing, programming, software design and software engineering.

Software Engineering for Real-time Systems Volume 1: Foundations (The engineering of real-time embedded systems)

https://www.amazon.com/Software-Engineering-Real-time-System...
Software Engineering for Real-time Systems, a three-volume book-set, aims to provide a firm foundation in the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to develop and produce real-time, and in particular, embedded systems. Their core purpose is to convince readers that these systems need to be engineered in a rigorous, professional and organised way. The objective of volume 1 is to give a good grounding in the basics of the subject. It begins by describing what real-time systems are, their structures and applications, and the impact of these on software design in general. Following this is a chapter that shows clearly why a professional design approach is imperative in order to produce safe, reliable and correct software. Next up is a chapter that deals with the issues of requirements extraction, analysis and specification, including the topics of rapid and animation prototyping. Rounding off volume 1 is a chapter that introduces the basic concepts of software and program design, including modularization, structured programming and mainstream software design methods The material, which forms the foundations for later work, is essential reading for those new to real-time software. Note for lecturers who adopt this book as a required course textbook.Supporting material is available, covering both exercises (Word) and course slides (PowerPoint). This is provided free of charge.

Real-time Operating Systems: Book 2 - The Practice (The engineering of real-time embedded systems)

https://www.amazon.com/Real-time-Operating-Systems-engineeri...
There’s something really satisfying about turning theory into practice, bringing with it a great feeling of accomplishment. Moreover it usually deepens and solidifies your understanding of the theoretical aspects of the subject, while at the same time eliminating misconceptions and misunderstandings. So it’s not surprising that the the fundamental philosophy of this book is that ‘theory is best understood by putting it into practice’. Well, that’s fine as it stands. Unfortunately the practice may a bit more challenging, especially in the field of real-time operating systems. First, you need a sensible, practical toolset on which to carry out the work. Second, for many self-learners, cost is an issue; the tools mustn’t be expensive. Third, they mustn’t be difficult to get, use and maintain. So what we have here is our approach to providing you with a low cost toolset for RTOS experimentation.The toolset used for this work consists of:A graphical tool for configuring microcontrollers (specifically STM32F variants) - STM32CubeMX software application.An Integrated Development Environment for the production of machine code.A very low cost single board computer with inbuilt programmer and debuggerAll software, which is free, can be run on Windows, OSX or Linux platforms. The Discovery kit is readily available from many electronic suppliers. The RTOS used for this work is FreeRTOS, which is integrated with the CubeMX tool.The author: Jim Cooling has had many years experience in the area of real-time embedded systems, including electronic, software and system design, project management, consultancy, education and course development.

Embedded Systems: Real-Time Operating Systems for ARM Cortex-M Microcontrollers

https://www.amazon.com/Embedded-Systems-Real-Time-Operating-...
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.

Software Engineering for Real-time Systems Volume 2: Designing and Developing Real-time Software (The engineering of real-time embedded systems)

https://www.amazon.com/Software-Engineering-Real-time-System...
Software Engineering for Real-time Systems, a three-volume book-set, aims to provide a firm foundation in the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to develop and produce real-time, and in particular, embedded systems. Their core purpose is to convince readers that these systems need to be engineered in a rigorous, professional and organised way. The purpose of Volume 2 is to introduce key practical issues met in the analysis, design and development of real-time software. Opening this are two chapters concerned with a core aspect of modern software development: diagramming. Chapter 1, a groundwork chapter, explains why diagrams and diagramming are important, what we achieve by using diagrams and the types used in the software development process. Chapter 2 extends this material showing diagrams that are in common use, are integral to mainstream design methods and are supported by computer-based tools. Next to be covered are code-related topics, including code development, code organization and packaging and the integration of program units. This includes fundamental program design and construction techniques, component technology, the programming needs of embedded systems, and how mainstream programming languages meet these requirements. The concluding chapter of shows the application of these aspects to practical software development. It looks at the overall specification-to-coding process using a variety of techniques: structured, data flow, object-oriented, model driven and model based.Note for lecturers who adopt this book as a required course textbook.Supporting material is available, covering both exercises (Word) and course slides (PowerPoint).

Modelling software with pictures: UML diagramming for real-time embedded systems (The engineering of real-time embedded systems)

https://www.amazon.com/Modelling-software-pictures-diagrammi...
This book sets out to show embedded software engineers how to model their designs using diagrams in an effective, clear and useful way. A key aspect in all of this is the sensible application of a set of diagrams defined within the Unified Modelling Language (UML) standard. It is aimed at those designing - or who intend to design - software for real-time embedded systems (RTESs).One 5-star review at https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B010EAABLSThe content of this book falls into two quite distinct categories. The first, covered by chapters 1 to 3, is a ‘selling’ mission, to try to make you understand why it really is a good idea to use modelling methods in your designs. The next set of chapters is organized on a model-by-model basis. The diagrams described are those that we have found to be especially useful in the development of RTESs. This isn’t limited to just the syntax and semantic aspects (such information is widely available) but also tries to show how and why such diagrams are used. Rounding things off is chapter 9, ‘Practical diagramming issues’. This is especially important as it provides practical guidance on using UML diagrams for the design and development of real-time systems.The author: Jim Cooling has had many years experience in the area of real-time embedded systems, including electronic, software and system design, project management, consultancy, education and course development.
