Textbook on Real-time systems
real time systems book cover

This book covers a broad set of aspects that relate to real-time systems. As far as hardware is concerned, issues related to concurrency and processor multithreading are discussed, while hardware issues relevant to the digital capturing of mult-channel or single-channel data are also analysed. As far as software is concerned, the development of real-time systems is studied, with the focus being on the critical stages of system analysis and design; real-time operating systems, which will support the applications are also studied. Hardware and software are also examined as an integral system, through a comprehensive study of biomedical real-time systems. Finally, performance analysis of real-time systems is also extensively covered.
