This book outlines the major elements that go into embedded operating systems and board support packages (BSPs), and gives readers a strong foundation on which to apply the technology they must master in the future. It describes types of embedded operating systems and demonstrates how they can be implemented within a particular embedded device. Current exciting technology trends within the embedded systems arena are discussed, including the latest examples of real world technologies: references to real-world hardware and software protocols, as well as references to technical specifications, are used. With this book you will learn: what an embedded operating system is and what a board support package isto understand the main components that make up embedded operating systems, and their internal designhow to determine the most suitable embedded operating system for a particular devicehow to select the best embedded operating system for a particular product, between different real world embedded operating systems available on the marketwhat the main components that make up a board support package (BSP) are, and the internal design of BSPshow to port an embedded operating system from one platform to another, and the importance of a board support package in solving the challenges of porting embedded middleware and application software from one embedded platformdesign, development and debugging of an embedded operating system and an underlying board support packagehow to predict the security, robustness and predictability of an embedded system that utilizes a particular embedded operating system design
