Embedded Operating Systems: A Practical Approach (Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science)

This practically-oriented textbook presents a transparent advent to different part components of an working approach and the way those interact. The easy-to-follow textual content covers the bootloader, kernel, filesystem, shared libraries, start-up scripts, configuration records and approach utilities. The process for construction every one part is defined intimately, guiding the reader throughout the strategy of making a absolutely practical GNU/Linux embedded OS. beneficial properties: provides a concise evaluation of the GNU/Linux approach, and a close assessment of GNU/Linux filesystems; describes the way to construct an embedded method to run on a digital desktop, and to run natively on a precise processor; introduces the concept that of the compiler toolchain, demonstrating the best way to enhance a pass toolchain in order that courses may be outfitted on a number diverse architectures; discusses the ARM-based systems BeagleBone and Raspberry Pi; explains the right way to construct OpenWRT firmware photographs for OMxP Open-mesh units and the Dragino MS14 sequence.
