Utilize a new layers-based development model for embedded systems using Agile techniques for software architecture and management. Firmware is comprised of both hardware and software, but the applicability of Agile in embedded systems development is new. This book provides a step-by-step process showing how this is possible. The book details how the moving parts in embedded systems development affect one another and shows how to properly use both engineering tools and new tools and methods to reduce waste, rework, and product time-to-market. Software is seen not as a commodity but a conduit to facilitate valuable product knowledge flow across the company into the hands of the customer. Embedded Systems Architecture for Agile Development starts off by reviewing the Layers model used in other engineering disciplines, as well as its advantages and applicability to embedded systems development. It outlines development models from project-based methodologies (e.g., collaborative product development) to the newer modern development visions (e.g., Agile) in software and various tools and methods that can help with a Layers model implementation. The book covers requirement modeling for embedded systems (Hatley-Pirbhai Method) and how adapting the HP Method with the help of the tools discussed in this book can be seen as a practical example for a complete embedded system. What You’ll Learn Identify the major software parts involved in building a typical modern firmware Assign a layer to each software part so each layer can be separate from another and there won’t be interdependencies between them Systematically and logically create these layers based on the customer requirements Use Model-Based Design (MBD) to create an active system architecture that is more accepting of changes Who This Book Is For Firmware engineers; systems architects; hardware and software managers, developers, designers, and architects; program managers; project managers; Agile practitioners; and manufacturing engineers and managers. The secondary audience includes research engineers and managers, and engineering and manufacturing managers.

This book describes model-based development of adaptive embedded systems, which enable improved functionality using the same resources. The techniques presented facilitate design from a higher level of abstraction, focusing on the problem domain rather than on the solution domain, thereby increasing development efficiency. Models are used to capture system specifications and to implement (manually or automatically) system functionality. The authors demonstrate the real impact of adaptivity on engineering of embedded systems by providing several industrial examples of the models used in the development of adaptive embedded systems.

The software architecture of embedded computing systems is a depiction of the system as a set of structures that aids in the reasoning and understanding of how the system will behave. Software architecture acts as the blueprint for the system as well as the project developing it. The architecture is the primary framework of important embedded system qualities such as performance, modifiability, and security, none of which can be achieved without a unifying architectural vision. Architecture is an artifact for early analysis to ensure that a design approach will lead to an acceptable system. This chapter will discuss the details of these aspects of embedded software architectures.

Embedded Systems: ARM Programming and Optimization provides insights on the the modern consumer electronics industry and its relationship to two technologies, the ARM processor and the Linux operating system. ARM processor technology powers nearly all modern mobile devices-and most of these processors run the Linux operating system. It's no exaggeration to say that having an understanding of embedded system design and development from the context of ARM and Linux technology is an important asset in today's world. The book combines an exploration of the ARM architecture with an examination of the facilities offered by the Linux operating system to explain how various features of program design can influence processor performance. It demonstrates methods by which a programmer can make changes to code without changing program semantics, while still making a significant impact on code performance. Several applications, including image transformations, fractal generation, image convolution, and computer vision tasks are used to describe and demonstrate these methods. From this, users will gain new insights into computer architecture and application design, as well as practical knowledge in the area of embedded software design for modern embedded systems. Covers three ARM instruction set architectures, the ARMv6 and ARMv7-A, as well as three ARM cores, the ARM11 on the Raspberry Pi, Cortex-A9 on the Xilinx Zynq 7020 on the Zedboard, and Cortex-A15 on the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Describes how to fully leverage the facilities offered by the Linux operating system, including the Linux GCC compiler toolchain and debug tools, performance monitoring support, OpenMP multicore runtime environment, video frame buffer, and video capture capabilities Designed to accompany and work with most of the low cost Linux/ARM embedded development boards currently available Presents the relationship that exists between the modern consumer electronics industry, the ARM processor and the Linux operating system
