Real-time Operating Systems are an increasingly important tool, as integration of networking functionality, reliability, modularity, and complex multitasking become ever-more prominent concerns for embedded developers. However, mastering the many benefits offered by an RTOS can be challenging and time-consuming. This practical new book from embedded software expert Colin Walls provides a perfect solution to that problem. It offers a readable and concise introduction to the world of real-time operating systems, providing readers with all the background they need to understand why an RTOS is helpful, how an RTOS can be used, and how an RTOS actually works. The book first introduces all the main concepts of real-time programming and real-time operating systems, and then provides detailed, step-by-step instructions to implementing an RTOS, supported by thorough explanations of the included source code. In addition, the entire source code to a real RTOS is included on the CD-ROM.
