Product Description

From the Back Cover

Embedded systems are an inescapable part of our daily lives. They are found in our domestic appliances; in our cars; in complex medical equipment; in specialised industrial machinery; and even in something as simple as a wristwatch. Our increasing dependence upon these special-purpose systems brings with it a demand for greater sophistication and connecting them to the internet is the next stage in this development. Being internet-enabled allows the system to use the vast resources of the ‘net to perform processes that would have been traditionally too complex for a ‘stand-alone’ version. It also represents the most cost-effective way to control and monitor the system remotely.

Clearly, the need for programmers to learn the special skills required to connect their systems to the internet is growing and will continue to grow into the future. In The Embedded Internet Sergio Scaglia lucidly examines the techniques required to achieve internet connectivity, starting with how to draw upon those TCP/IP implementations which already exist, right through to the more complicated business of developing brand new ones. Using an innovative three part approach (background theory, practical implementation, conceptual overview of applications) he presents everything a programmer will need to know to succeed in this exciting and expanding field.

Key Features

  • Demonstrates the benefits of internet enabled embedded systems using real-world applications
  • Comprehensive coverage of the theory behind TCP/IP
  • Practical focus shows how to implement the TCP/IP stack in embedded systems 
  • Covers the state of the art in internet protocols and technologies
  • Accompanying CD with complete TCP/IP stack to complement part 1. Also contains self-test exercises for students

 

Sergio Scaglia has over 12 years experience in designing and implementing embedded systems. He has been teaching in this field at the University of Mendoza, Argentina, for the last five years specialising in connecting embedded systems to the internet.

Format: Paperback
I liked this book. It book is in two parts. First is theory I found that the theory was clear enough to understand it. Diagrams always help :-) In many ways the first part is "just another TCP/IP book¨

What set this book apart for me is the second half and the software (on the CD). It uses a series of labs to do various part of the stack including serial and ethernet drivers. I found it was brilliant for understanding the theory.

The target processor is ARM which is everyone's favourite at the moment! One thing I like is the dev kits used are obtainable in most countries (they are IAR kits to match the compiler) I hate having to send off to the other side of the world for hardware for a book! That said the SW runs in the simulator too though that is pointless for comms SW!

I think the book is easy to read, all the SW and tools are on the CD. If you want to understand TCP/IP from theory to the last byte of SW this is the book.. This is an ideal book for students. I can see it becoming THE course book for TCP/iP

Why only 4 stars? I had to go and buy a dev kit to really use the SW. I now hacve a new nodes on the network. The quation is what do I get the board to do now.

Format: Paperback
Excellent presentation of the theory for all the OSI layers required to build a TCP/IP stack for embedded systems. The theory is well exposed with only the essential elements necessary to understand the protocol stack, no more, no less! And after a good dose of theory, the practical section gives You the opportunity to further master the way the stack should be built. Personally, I do not use any of the MPU for which the examples are written, but, I have been able to port them to the platforms that I am using. This book is really effective in teaching theory and good programming for the TCP/IP, with a straight and essential, yet detailed, developments of the various topics, supported by well structured programming examples; if You want to expand any topic, then, You have more than You need to be able to find specific literature: in reality, I had find all I was looking for its pages! A book that I recommend to all of You which are approaching this topic for the first time or are not that familiar with (like me) and need to use the TCP/IP in Your next project. Thanks a lot to the author.

If you want to learn TCP/IP from the beginning, and also to have the oportunity of see how to build a TCP/IP stack from scratch, this is the book.
The author teachs the reader how to understand every OSI layer, with the related code example.
In one book you have both, the explanation and exercises in an excellent matching.
I look for a book like this one during a long time.
