I am author of the book - Embedded Linux System Design and Development.
I'd like to announce it's release through your site.
Auerbach Publications (an imprint of Taylor & Francis Group) announces
release of "Embedded Linux System Design and Development".
Embedded Linux System Design and Development:
* Contains an entire roadmap for embedded Linux systems
* Explains the MTD (Memory Technology Device) model for Flash based
* Illustrates real-time programming techniques using POSIX.1b real-time
extensions such as memory locking, real-time signals and asynchronous IO
* Examines how uClinux differs from standard Linux
* Discusses porting applications from a traditional RTOS to embedded
Based upon the authors' experience in designing and deploying an
embedded Linux system with a variety of applications, Embedded Linux
System Design and Development contains a full embedded Linux system
development roadmap for systems architects and software programmers.
Explaining the issues that arise out of the use of Linux in embedded
systems, the book facilitates movement to embedded Linux from
traditional real-time operating systems, and describes the system design
model containing embedded Linux.
This book delivers practical solutions for writing, debugging, and
profiling applications and drivers in embedded Linux, and for
understanding Linux BSP architecture. It enables you to understand:
various drivers such as serial, I2C and USB gadgets; uClinux
architecture and its programming model; and the embedded Linux graphics
subsystem. The text also promotes learning of methods to reduce system
boot time, optimize memory and storage, and find memory leaks and
corruption in applications.
This volume benefits IT managers in planning to choose an embedded Linux
distribution and in creating a roadmap for OS transition. It also
describes the application of the Linux licensing model in commercial

Reviews (From the back cover):
"A good overview of uClinux, and the infrastructure that supports it."
â David McCullough, uClinux Core Maintainer
"The authors have done a good job fitting all the pieces together that
are necessary for embedded Linux development. The book discusses topics
such as board support packages, embedded storage and real-time Linux
programming in depth. Embedded graphics and uCLinux are also explained
with clarity. "
â Todd Fischer, President, Cadenux, from the Foreword
"A great job covering the Linux framebuffer interface in detail â a lot
of people will find this useful."
â Greg Haerr, CEO & Founder, Century Software
