Product description

A practical, hands-on guide for hardware programmers Featuring numerical example equations, Essential Elements of Embedded Systems Hardware for Programmers provides a single resource to teach hardware programmers how to perform embedded systems design. The design of embedded systems tends to involve such specialized programming that the hardware behind the software begins to emerge in the designer's work. Embedded systems designers who are unfamiliar with the hardware side of computers will find themselves in unknown waters. This book offers a lifeline. Essential Elements of Embedded Systems Hardware for Programmers Includes a complete list of key manufacturers of electronic components Provides a large number of data sheets and application notes from various manufacturers in downloadable format Features a non-math-heavy approach Offers a one-stop resource for learning the fundamentals of hardware
