Embedded Systems Design with the Atmel AVR Microcontroller by Steven Barrett, Mitchell Thornton

By Steven Barrett, Mitchell Thornton

This textbook presents working towards scientists and engineers a sophisticated therapy of the Atmel AVR microcontroller. This publication is meant as a follow-on to a formerly released publication, titled Atmel AVR Microcontroller Primer: Programming and Interfacing. a number of the content material from this past textual content is retained for completeness. This e-book will emphasize complex programming and interfacing talents. We specialise in approach point layout which includes numerous interacting microcontroller subsystems. the 1st bankruptcy discusses the procedure layout approach. Our strategy is to supply the abilities to quick wake up to hurry to function the the world over well known Atmel AVR microcontroller line by way of constructing structures point layout talents. We use the Atmel ATmega164 as a consultant pattern of the AVR line. the data you achieve in this microcontroller will be simply translated to each different microcontroller within the AVR line. In succeeding chapters, we disguise the most subsystems aboard the microcontroller, offering a quick concept part by way of an outline of the similar microcontroller subsystem with accompanying software program for the subsystem. We then offer complicated examples workout a few of the beneficial properties mentioned. In all examples, we use the c program languageperiod. The code supplied should be without difficulty tailored to the wide range of compilers on hand for the Atmel AVR microcontroller line. We additionally contain a bankruptcy describing easy methods to interface the microcontroller to a large choice of enter and output units. The booklet concludes with a number of special method point layout examples utilising the Atmel AVR microcontroller. desk of Contents: Embedded structures layout / Atmel AVR structure review / Serial conversation Subsystem / Analog to electronic Conversion (ADC) / Interrupt Subsystem / Timing Subsystem / Atmel AVR working Parameters and Interfacing / method point layout

Designing SOCs with Configured Cores: Unleashing the by Steve Leibson

By Steve Leibson

Microprocessor cores used for SOC layout are the direct descendents of Intel’s unique 4004 microprocessor. simply as packaged microprocessor ICs range commonly of their attributes, so do microprocessors packaged as IP cores. in spite of the fact that, SOC designers nonetheless evaluate and choose processor cores the way in which they formerly in comparison and chosen packaged microprocessor ICs. the massive challenge with this option process is that it assumes that the legislation of the microprocessor universe have remained unchanged for many years. This assumption isn't any longer valid.

Processor cores for SOC designs might be way more plastic than microprocessor ICs for board-level method designs. Shaping those cores for particular purposes produces far better processor potency and lots more and plenty decrease approach clock premiums. jointly, Tensilica’s Xtensa and Diamond processor cores represent a kin of software-compatible microprocessors masking a very broad functionality variety from easy keep an eye on processors, to DSPs, to 3-way superscalar processors. but all of those processors use an identical software-development instruments in order that programmers conversant in one processor within the relatives can simply swap to another.

This publication emphasizes a processor-centric MPSOC (multiple-processor SOC) layout kind formed by means of the realities of the 21st-century and nanometer silicon. It advocates the task of projects to firmware-controlled processors each time attainable to maximise SOC flexibility, lower strength dissipation, lessen the scale and variety of hand-built common sense blocks, slash the linked verification attempt, and reduce the final layout chance.

· a vital, no-nonsense advisor to the layout of 21st-century mega-gate SOCs utilizing nanometer silicon.
· Discusses contemporary key matters affecting SOC layout, according to author's a long time of non-public event in constructing huge electronic structures as a layout engineer whereas operating at Hewlett-Packard's computer computing device department and at EDA computer pioneer Cadnetix, and protecting such issues as an award-winning know-how journalist and editor-in-chief for EDN journal and the Microprocessor Report.
· Explores conventionally permitted obstacles and perceived limits of processor-based process layout after which explodes those man made constraints via a clean outlook on and dialogue of the particular talents of processor cores designed particularly for SOC design.
· Thorough exploration of the evolution of processors and processor cores used for ASIC and SOC layout with a glance at the place the has come from, and the place it truly is going.
· Easy-to-understand factors of the features of configurable and extensible processor cores via a close exam of Tensilica's configurable, extensible Xtensa processor middle and 6 pre-configured Diamond cores.
· the main accomplished review on hand of the sensible facets of configuring and utilizing a number of processor cores to accomplish very tricky and bold SOC rate, functionality, and tool layout objectives.

Embedded SoPC Design with Nios II Processor and VHDL by Pong P. Chu

By Pong P. Chu

The ebook is split into 4 significant elements. half I covers HDL constructs and synthesis of simple electronic circuits. half II offers an summary of embedded software program improvement with the emphasis on low-level I/O entry and drivers. half III demonstrates the layout and improvement of and software program for numerous advanced I/O peripherals, together with PS2 keyboard and mouse, a picture video controller, an audio codec, and an SD (secure electronic) card. half IV presents 3 case reviews of the mixing of accelerators, together with a customized GCD (greatest universal divisor) circuit, a Mandelbrot set fractal circuit, and an audio synthesizer in response to DDFS (direct electronic frequency synthesis) methodology.

The publication makes use of FPGA units, Nios II soft-core processor, and improvement platform from Altera Co., that is one of many major FPGA manufactures. Altera has a beneficiant collage software that gives unfastened software program and discounted prototyping forums for academic associations (details at http://www.altera.com/university). the 2 major academic prototyping forums are referred to as DE1 ($99) and DE2 ($269). All experiments could be applied and demonstrated with those forums. A board mixed with this ebook turns into a “turn-key” resolution for the SoPC layout experiments and tasks. such a lot HDL and C codes within the e-book are gadget self sufficient and will be tailored via different prototyping forums so long as a board has related I/O configuration.
