Hardware-dependent Software - Principles and Practice by Wolfgang Ecker, Wolfgang Müller, Rainer Dömer

By Wolfgang Ecker, Wolfgang Müller, Rainer Dömer

Regardless of its value, the position of HdS is customarily underestimated and the subject isn't good represented in literature and schooling. to handle this, Hardware-dependent software program brings jointly specialists from diverse HdS components. by way of delivering a entire evaluation of basic HdS rules, instruments, and functions, this ebook presents sufficient perception into the present know-how and upcoming advancements within the area of HdS. The reader will locate a fascinating textual content publication with self-contained introductions to the foundations of Real-Time working structures (RTOS), the rising BIOS successor UEFI, and the Abstraction Layer (HAL). different chapters disguise business functions, verification, and power environments. device introductions disguise the appliance of instruments within the ASIP software program device chain (i.e. Tensilica) and the iteration of drivers and OS elements from C-based languages. purposes concentrate on telecommunication and automobile structures.

2 Examples of WSNOS TinyOS. TinyOS [CHB+ 01] is a very efficient OS for WSNs that uses eventbased task coordination in order to run on very resource-constrained nodes. The execution model is similar to a finite state machine. It consists of a set of components that are included in the applications when necessary. TinyOS addresses the main challenges of a sensor network: constrained resources, concurrent operations, robustness, and application requirement support. Each TinyOS application consists of a scheduler and a graph of components.
