There is need for a good, comprehensive book on embedded design and the lab-based approach using the Intel Architecture is very good and practical.
"Driven by nearly a billion people online and a trillion connected objects, the scale of computing technology has exploded over the last decade, mandating the need for autonomic capabilities in IT systems and systems components. A Vision for Platform Autonomy: Robust Frameworks for Systems reveals the concepts, architectures, and core methodologies enabling the underlying elements essential to achieve autonomic computing."
"The frameworks discussed by the authors of A Vision for Platform Autonomy have a lot to offer in terms of methodologies that can be adopted for building innovative solutions related to power/thermal and availability aspects. It provides researchers a cost-effective alternative to building higher performance designs that are critical for advancing future-generation platform architectures. Computer engineers and designers will find this book very valuable."
"I would highly recommend A Vision for Platform Autonomy for data center managers, enterprise management professionals, and platform architects. The authors have made significant contributions to the field of autonomics by providing an implementation framework and real life examples of how various feature and capabilities of modern compute platforms can contribute to a robust solution for autonomics."
"Active Platform Management Demystified provides a good balance between technology overview and implementation details, making it a great book for ISV product teams—including product managers, senior engineers, architects and support personnel—that are developing, supporting and selling client management software."
"The History and Overview sections alone provide excellent education on a wide array DMTF standards. This book will become an important resource for anyone navigating state-of-the-art management technology."
"In just a few days, a programmer familiar with C should have a good understanding of how to get started writing UEFI drivers and applications. For those who haven't developed PC BIOS firmware, Beyond BIOS 2nd Edition presents an opportunity to ramp up on the industry standard firmware platform for PCs and start writing UEFI apps as they do apps for today's mobile operating systems."
"...highly recommend this book as a "deep dive" into the UEFI specifications and the flexibility these standards give to those who choose them. This publication is full of practical information and real-world examples for system designers and can empower them to get and keep a competitive edge in their designs. I would like to commend Intel for compiling such a valuable resource."
"Our customers were able to gain efficiency and time-to-market advantage from legacy BIOS to Framework and EFI... Beyond BIOS 2nd Edition provides an extremely thorough yet lucid explanation of UEFI and PI that should be helpful to anyone that wants to understand or use this modern firmware environment."
"This is an essential guide to working with the Intel® Atom™ processors that should be read by anyone who wants to understand how to use the platform effectively. The book covers key concepts including power management, parallel applications, and machine virtualization, while providing a clear explanation of the system architecture and how to use it to its fullest advantage."
"This isn't just a book about Intel extending its reach into the embedded market. In a way that is fresh and exciting, the authors have really understood that it is a powerful software methodology and tools eco-system that is needed for developers to make best use of the multicore and multithreaded world we now live in. The style of this Atom book will be the standard against which all processor architecture books are measured from now on."
"This book is an excellent resource for someone trying to quickly come up to speed on the benefits, features, and differences of the Intel® Atom™ processors. As an added benefit, many of the concepts discussed throughout this book will provide the reader with generic implementation details, thereby serving as a good read for anyone new to the practical aspects of processor programming. The author's elaborate discussion on multicore programming techniques and tools is especially valuable, providing accurate details that are difficult to come by."
This Study Guide is a much awaited companion to the Break Away with Intel Atom Processors for my microcomputer course. With class activities and exercise quiz problems every chapter, as well as labs and application examples, it provides hands-on and active learning experiences for students to learn about low-power applications on Intel Atom processors.
The Break Away Study Guide leads one through both the depth and breadth of the Atom processor architecture, challenging one with realistic activities, and guiding one through the technical details with practical questions and realistic problem sets. Users of this study guide will appreciate the general introduction to concepts and detailed application of those concepts to the Atom processor design.
“This study guide is an essential component to fully understanding and utilizing all of the complex material presented in Break Away with Intel Atom Processors. The original material is applied in an educationally productive manner to allow the rehearsal of vital terminology, concepts, and paradigms in order to bring the reader up-to-speed on the best usage of Intel Atom processors in the embedded systems market. Both of these books are vital information not only for embedded engineers, but also for systems analysts and systems architects. I highly recommend both of these books and the Intel Atom processor.”
Face recognition and motion detection will be game changers. This book is one of a kind and goes into great technical details in explaining various methodologies and their practical applications.
Intelligent systems built on existing research results can solve some real problems and benefit our life.
This book shows us how to create these systems
This is a comprehensive textbook for those entering the field and an excellent reference for those of us who are working in the field. It will have a prominent place in my library where I can readily reach it.
