Beschreibung des Verlags
This classroom-tested textbook describes the design and implementation of software for distributed real-time systems, using a bottom-up approach. The text addresses common challenges faced in software projects involving real-time systems, and presents a novel method for simply and effectively performing all of the software engineering steps. Each chapter opens with a discussion of the core concepts, together with a review of the relevant methods and available software. This is then followed with a description of the implementation of the concepts in a sample kernel, complete with executable code.
Topics and features:
Introduces the fundamentals of real-time systems, including real-time architecture and distributed real-time systemsPresents a focus on the real-time operating system, covering the concepts of task, memory, and input/output managementProvides a detailed step-by-step construction of a real-time operating system kernel, which is then used to test various higher level implementationsDescribes periodic and aperiodic scheduling, resource management, and distributed schedulingReviews the process of application design from high-level design methods to low-level details of design and implementationSurveys real-time programming languages and fault tolerance techniquesIncludes end-of-chapter review questions, extensive C code, numerous examples, and a case study implementing the methods in real-world applicationsSupplies additional material at an associated website
Requiring only a basic background in computer architecture and operating systems, this practically-oriented work is an invaluable study aid for senior undergraduate and graduate-level students of electrical and computer engineering, and computer science. The text will also serve as a useful general reference for researchers interested in real-time systems.
