Real-Time Embedded Components and Systems with Linux and RTOS, 2nd Edition

Book Description

This book is intended to provide a senior undergraduate or graduate student in engineering or computer science with a balance of fundamental theory, review of industry practice, and hands-on experience to prepare for a career in the real-time embedded system industries. It is also intended to provide the practicing engineer with the necessary background to apply real-time theory to the design of embedded components and systems. Typical industries include aerospace, medical diagnostic and therapeutic systems, telecommunications, automotive, , industrial process control, media systems, computer gaming, and electronic entertainment, as well as multimedia applications for general-purpose computing. This updated edition adds three new chapters focused on key technology advancements in embedded systems and with wider coverage of real-time architectures. The overall focus remains the RTOS (Real-Time ), but use of for soft real-time, hybrid FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) architectures and advancements in multi-core system-on-chip (SoC), as well as software strategies for asymmetric and symmetric multiprocessing (AMP and SMP) relevant to real-time embedded systems, have been added. Companion files are provided with numerous project videos, resources, applications, and figures from the book. Instructors’ resources are available upon adoption.


  • Provides a comprehensive, up to date, and accessible presentation of embedded systems without sacrificing theoretical foundations
  • Features the RTOS (Real-Time Operating System), but use of Linux for soft real-time, hybrid FPGA architectures and advancements in multi-core system-on-chip is included
  • Discusses an overview of RTOS advancements, including AMP and SMP configurations, with a discussion of future directions for RTOS use in multi-core architectures, such as SoC
  • Detailed applications coverage including robotics, computer vision, and continuous media
  • Includes a companion disc (4GB) with numerous videos, resources, , examples, and figures from the book
  • Provides several instructors’ resources, including lecture notes, Microsoft PP slides, etc.
