Embedded Systems: World Class Designs book cover

Embedded Systems: World Class Designs

Famed author Jack Ganssle has selected the very best embedded systems design material from the Newnes portfolio and compiled into this volume. The result is a book covering the gamut of embedded design—from hardware to software to integrated embedded systems—with a strong pragmatic emphasis. In addition to specific design techniques and practices, this book also discusses various approaches to solving embedded design problems and how to successfully apply theory to actual design tasks. The material has been selected for its timelessness as well as for its relevance to contemporary embedded design issues. This book will be an essential working reference for anyone involved in embedded system design! Table of Contents:Chapter 1. Motors - Stuart BallChapter 2. Testing – Arnold S. BergerChapter 3.

Reviews

  • "Novice developers will find this book to be invaluable. But more experienced developers will enjoy the breadth and probably pick up a few tricks or insights in less familiar areas." - William Wong, Electronic Design, June 2008
