Designing Embedded Internet Devices: A Practical Guide to Hardware and Software Design using the TINI Microcontroller
by Dan Eisenreich & Brian Demuth
Embedded Internet and Internet appliances are the focus of great attention in the computing industry, as they are seen as the future of computing. The design of such devices presents many technical challenges. This book is the first guide available that describes how to design Internet access and communications capabilities into embedded systems. It takes an integrated hardware/software approach using the Java programming language and industry-standard microcontrollers. Numerous illustrations and code examples enliven the text. All of the circuits and code have been fully tested. Based on the 8051 microprocessor, TINI is an internet-ready, embeddable, Java Virtual Machine with a powerful collection of hardware interfaces (I2C, CAN, 1-wire, RS-232, parallel, Ethernet).
