Designing Embedded Hardware
01 May, 2005
You can tell by the gleam in a programmer's eye that there's a certain beauty in well-written software. There's beauty in well-designed hardware, as well. "With embedded computers, you get to understand the machine at all levels, at once aware of currents flowing though circuit traces and software executing complex algorithms," says John Catsoulis, author of "Designing Embedded Hardware, Second Edition" (O'Reilly). According to Catsoulis, it's neither possible to write embedded software without understanding the hardware, nor to design hardware without understanding software. "You become involved with the machine to a degree beyond that which is possible with desktop computers. Best of all, it's a lot of fun."
