Embedded Systems Building Blocks, 2nd Edition
by Jean J. Labrosse

This book provides basic, reusable real-time system modules and explains how to use and modify them. Portable, ready to use code will save time and costs in system development and shorten time to market. Time to market is becoming as important as cost control in gaining competitive advantage.

Jean J. Labrosse has been designing embedded systems for over 15 years. Thousands of people are using his first book, µC/OS-II: The Real-Time Kernel. His experience has taught him that certain pieces are common to most systems: a display, a keypad for interacting with the system, various analog and discrete inputs, various types of outputs, communications with host computers, event timing, and keeping track of date and time. Labrosse provides basic building blocks for all these processes, freeing other developers to work on the fun and unique parts of their designs. By providing some of the peripheral functions, Labrosse enables designers to put their energy into the hard specifics of each unique system.

µC/ - The MicroController Operating System
by Jean J. Labrosse

The genesis of the Micrium product line began in 1992 with the publication of μC/. Meaning “MicroController”, μC/ is Micrium’s first proprietary embedded software component, and the product of years of research and development by Micrium’s founder, Jean J. LaBrosse. Micrium’s μC/ enables the engineer programmer to improve their computer software and hardware design and development services. With the companion CD to provide user support, μC/ may be incorporated in a wide variety of products and shorten time-to-market throughout all product development cycles. Micrium has successfully used μC/ to create a diverse portfolio of products and services, such as real-time operating systems, software, tools and embedded software components.

Micrium designs and produces high-quality embedded software components and real time operating systems for use in the industry by way of engineer-friendly source code, extensive technical documentation and unsurpassed customer support and training.
