An introduction to the engineering principles of embedded systems, with a focus on modeling, design, and analysis of cyber-physical systems.

The most visible use of computers and software is processing information for human consumption. The vast majority of computers in use, however, are much less visible. They run the engine, brakes, seatbelts, airbag, and audio system in your car. They digitally encode your voice and construct a radio signal to send it from your cell phone to a base station. They command robots on a factory floor, power generation in a power plant, processes in a chemical plant, and traffic lights in a city. These less visible computers are called embedded systems, and the software they run is called embedded software. The principal challenges in designing and analyzing embedded systems stem from their interaction with physical processes. This book takes a cyber-physical approach to embedded systems, introducing the engineering concepts underlying embedded systems as a technology and as a subject of study. The focus is on modeling, design, and analysis of cyber-physical systems, which integrate computation, networking, and physical processes.

The second edition offers two new chapters, several new exercises, and other improvements. The book can be used as a textbook at the advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level and as a professional reference for practicing engineers and computer scientists. Readers should have some familiarity with machine structures, computer programming, basic discrete mathematics and algorithms, and signals and systems.

Editorial Reviews

The outstanding property of this textbook is the combination of mathematical rigor and comprehensiveness. It is presented with numerous examples and with such quality that understanding the material is easy. Introduction to Embedded Systems is a must-read for those wanting to master the complexity of what is today the key enabling technology in most every complex system surrounding us: embedded and cyber-physical systems.-Werner Damm, Director, Interdisciplinary Research Center on Cooperative Critical Systems, Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg
