Book Description:

To satisfy the higher requirements of digitally converged embedded systems, this book describes heterogeneous multicore technology that uses various kinds of low-power embedded processor cores on a single chip. With this technology, heterogeneous parallelism can be implemented on an SoC, and greater flexibility and superior performance per watt can then be achieved. This book defines the heterogeneous multicore architecture and explains in detail several embedded processor cores including CPU cores and special-purpose processor cores that achieve highly arithmetic-level parallelism. The authors developed three multicore chips (called RP-1, RP-2, and RP-X) according to the defined architecture with the introduced processor cores. The chip implementations, software environments, and applications running on the chips are also explained in the book.Provides readers an overview and practical discussion of heterogeneous multicore technologies from both a hardware and software point of view;Discusses a new, high-performance and energy efficient approach to designing SoCs for digitally converged, embedded systems;Covers hardware issues such as architecture and chip implementation, as well as software issues such as compilers, operating systems, and application programs;Describes three chips developed according to the defined heterogeneous multicore architecture, including chip implementations, software environments, and working applications.

The Linux TCP/IP Stack

Jun 30 2016 The Linux TCP/IP Stack: Networking for Embedded Systems provides an in-depth guide to implementing and using the Linux TCP/IP stack in embedded systems projects. It begins with a general overview of TCP/IP networking, with background information on applicable networking standards. From there, it details the TCP/IP implementation in Linux 2.6 by following a packet of data as it flows through the stack from the sending system, out the wire, and back through the input side of the stack in the receiving machine. This unique approach gives programmers an "inside" look at the entire proces...
