Embedded Systems Firmware Demystified by Ed Sutter

By Ed Sutter

Professionals:
- The publication covers the correct subject matters provided in a smart logical development.

- The booklet comes with a very good bite of genuine, practical resource code that may be profitably studied (the major worth of this ebook imo).

CONs:
- like several unmarried CMP (fomerly R&D) booklet, this one is quite poorly written and activities lots of ridiculous typos that
a run via a spellchecker may repair.
- The publication is introductory, no longer indepth.
- Nitpicking: binding's undesirable, crack the publication open as soon as and it begins falling aside.

Even notwithstanding it is strongly recommended within the advent that this booklet goals either programming beginners and efficient general-purpose programmers coming into the embedded realm, i think that basically the latter workforce stands to learn right here; a complete neophyte might be pressured by means of the disjointed, obscure, and occasionally deceptive writing. yet somebody already conversant in the universally acceptable computing fundamentals can most likely make amends for writing deficiencies whereas choosing a couple of valuable issues particular to the embedded quarter; in that admire the publication is instructive.

Overall, it is a bit just like the Labrosse ebook (on uCos) -- a painful learn significatly compensated by means of the chance to check the hooked up resource code. one other related e-book is Barr's "Programming Embedded platforms in C and C++", that is via an order of significance higher written yet whilst a little bit skimpier than this one.
