Embedded RTOS Design: Insights and Implementation combines explanations of RTOS concepts with detailed, practical implementation. It gives a detailed description of the implementation of a basic real-time kernel designed to be limited in scope and simple to understand, which could be used for a real design of modest complexity. The kernel features upward-compatibility to a commercial real-time operating system: Nucleus RTOS. Code is provided which can be used without restriction.
Gain practical information on:
- Scheduling, preemption, and interrupts
- Information flow (queues, semaphores, etc.) and how they work
- Signaling between tasks (signals, events, etc.)
- Memory management (Where does each task get its stack from? What happens if the stack overflows?)
- The CPU context: storage and retrieval after a context switch
With this book you will be able to:
- Utilize a basic real-time kernel to develop your own prototype
- Design RTOS features
- Understand the facilities of a commercial RTOS
- Explains the principles of RTOS and shows their practical implementation
- Demonstrates how to prototype a real-time design
- Code is fully available for free use

Colin Walls has over forty years' experience in the electronics industry, largely involved with embedded software - very much a pioneer in this specialty. He has been a frequent presenter at conferences and seminars including: • Embedded Systems Conference, San Jose and Boston • Embedded World, Nuremberg • Arm Tech Con, California • Mentor events world-wide • Numerous partner events Colin has authored a great many technical articles and one of the first books on embedded software ["Programming Dedicated Microprocessors"; Macmillan Education, 1986]. His most recent publication is "Embedded Software: The Works" [2nd edition; Newnes, 2012], which addresses a wide range of embedded software topics. He is an embedded software technologist with Mentor, a Siemens business, and maintains a blog at http://blogs.mentor.com/colinwalls. Colin is based in the UK, where he lives with his family. Away from work, his main interests are photography, reading/writing, and food and drink.
