This book is the first in a series of two books that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems as applied to the MSP432 of microcontroller. This first book is an introduction to computers and interfacing focusing on assembly language and C programming. The second book Embedded Systems: Real-Time Interfacing to the MSP432 Microcontroller focuses on hardware/software interfacing and the design of embedded systems. This first book is an introductory book that could be used at the college level with little or no prerequisites. An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. This book is an introduction to embedded systems. Specific topics include microcontrollers, fixed-point numbers, the design of software in assembly language and C, elementary data structures, programming input/output including interrupts, analog to digital conversion, digital to analog conversion. This book employs many approaches to learning. It will not include an exhaustive recapitulation of the information in data sheets. First, it begins with basic fundamentals, which allows the reader to solve new problems with new technology. Second, the book presents many detailed design examples. These examples illustrate the process of design. There are multiple structural components that assist learning. Checkpoints, with answers in the back, are short easy to answer questions providing immediate feedback while reading. Simple homework, with answers to the odd questions on the web, provides more detailed learning opportunities. The book includes an index and a glossary so that information can be searched. The most important learning experiences in a class like this are of course the laboratories. Each chapter has suggested lab assignments. More detailed lab descriptions are available on the web. Specifically for this volume, look at the lab assignments for EE319K. For Volume 2, refer to the EE445L labs. There is a web site accompanying this book http: //users.ece.utexas.edu/ valvano/arm. Posted here are ARM Keil uVision and Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio projects for each of the example programs in the book. You will also find data sheets and Excel spreadsheets relevant to the material in this book. The book will cover embedded systems for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers with specific details on the MSP432.

Welcome to Real-Time Bluetooth Networks - Shape the World. This book, now in its second printing December 2017, offers a format geared towards hands-on self-paced learning. The overarching goal is to give you the student an experience with real-time operating systems that is based on the design and development of a simplified RTOS that exercises all the fundamental concepts. To keep the discourse grounded in practice we have refrained from going too deep into any one topic. We believe this will equip the student with the knowledge necessary to explore more advanced topics on their own. In essence, we will teach you the skills of the trade, but mastery is the journey you will have to undertake on your own. An operating system (OS) is layer of software that sits on top of the hardware. It manages the hardware resources so that the applications have the illusion that they own the hardware all to themselves. A real-time system is one that not only gets the correct answer but gets the correct answer at the correct time. Design and development of an OS therefore requires both, understanding the underlying architecture in terms of the interface (instruction set architecture, ISA) it provides to the software, and organizing the software to exploit this interface and present it to user applications. The decisions made in effectively managing the underlying architecture becomes more crucial in real-time systems as the performance (specifically timing) demands go beyond simple logical correctness. The architecture we will focus on is the ARM ISA, which is a very popular architecture in the embedded device ecosystem where real-time systems proliferate. A quick introduction to the ISA will be followed by specifics of TI's offering of this ISA as the Tiva and MSP432 Launchpad microcontroller. To make the development truly compelling we need a target application that has real-time constraints and multi-threading needs. To that end you will incrementally build a personal fitness device with Bluetooth connectivity. The Bluetooth connectivity will expose you to the evolving domain of Internet-of-things (IoT) where our personal fitness device running a custom RTOS will interact with a smartphone.

The book presents laboratory experiments concerning ARM microcontrollers, and discusses the architecture of the Tiva Cortex-M4 ARM microcontrollers from Texas Instruments, describing various ways of programming them. Given the meager peripherals and sensors available on the kit, the authors describe the design of Padma – a circuit board with a large set of peripherals and sensors that connects to the Tiva Launchpad and exploits the Tiva microcontroller family’s on-chip features. ARM microcontrollers, which are classified as 32-bit devices, are currently the most popular of all microcontrollers. They cover a wide range of applications that extend from traditional 8-bit devices to 32-bit devices. Of the various ARM subfamilies, Cortex-M4 is a middle-level microcontroller that lends itself well to data acquisition and control as well as digital signal manipulation applications. Given the prominence of ARM microcontrollers, it is important that they should be incorporated in academic curriculums. However, there is a lack of up-to-date teaching material – textbooks and comprehensive laboratory manuals. In this book each of the microcontroller’s resources – digital input and output, timers and counters, serial communication channels, analog-to-digital conversion, interrupt structure and power management features – are addressed in a set of more than 70 experiments to help teach a full semester course on these microcontrollers. Beyond these physical interfacing exercises, it describes an inexpensive BoB (break out board) that allows students to learn how to design and build standalone projects, as well a number of illustrative projects.

Embedded system, as a subject, is an amalgamation of different domains, such as digital design, architecture, operating systems, interfaces, and algorithmic optimization techniques. This book acquaints the students with the alternatives and intricacies of embedded system design. It is designed as a textbook for the undergraduate students of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Information Communication Technology (ICT), as well as for the postgraduate students of Computer Applications (MCA). While in the hardware platform the book explains the role of microcontrollers and introduces one of the most widely used embedded processor, ARM, it also deliberates on other alternatives, such as digital signal processors, field programmable devices, and integrated circuits. It provides a very good overview of the interfacing standards covering RS232C, RS422, RS485, USB, IrDA, Bluetooth, and CAN. In the software domain, the book introduces the features of real-time operating systems for use in embedded applications. Various scheduling algorithms have been discussed with their merits and demerits. The existing real-time operating systems have been surveyed. Guided by cost and performance requirements, embedded applications are often implemented partly in hardware and partly in software. The book covers the different optimization techniques proposed in the literature to take a judicious decision about this partitioning of application tasks. Power-aware design of embedded systems has also been dealt with. In its second edition, the text has been extensively revised and updated. Almost all the chapters have been modified and elaborated including detailed discussion on hardware platforms—ARM, DSP, and FPGA. The chapter on “interfacing standards” has been updated to incorporate the latest information. The new edition will be thereby immensely useful to the students, practitioners and advanced readers. Key Features • Presents a considerably wide coverage of the field of embedded systems • Discusses the ARM microcontroller in detail • Provides numerous exercises to assess the learning process • Offers a good discussion on hardware–software codesign
