Embedded computing : a VLIW approach to architecture, compilers and tools

By: Fisher, Joseph A.
Contributor(s): Faraboschi, Paolo | Young, Clifford 1947-.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: San Francisco, Calif. : Morgan Kaufmann, 2004Description: xxxvi, 671 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.ISBN: 1558607668 ; 9788131215180.Subject(s): Embedded computer systems -- Design and construction
Contents:
An introduction to embedded processing -- An overview of VLIW and ILP -- An overview of ISA design -- Architectural structures in ISA design -- Microarchitecture design -- System design and simulation -- Embedded compiling and toolchains -- Compiling for VLIWs and ILP -- The run-time system -- Application design and customization -- Application areas -- The VEX system.
Review: "Fisher, Faraboschi, and Young describe a new age of embedded computing design, in which the processor is central, making the approach radically distinct from contemporary practices of embedded systems design. They demonstrate why it is essential to take a computing-centric and system-design approach to the traditional elements of nonprogrammable components, peripherals, interconnects, and buses. These elements must be unified in a system design with high-performance processor architectures, microarchitectures, and compilers, and with the compilation tools, debuggers, and simulators needed for application development."--BOOK JACKET.
