Why care about hardware/firmware interaction? These interfaces are critical, a solid hardware design married with adaptive firmware can access all the capabilities of an application and overcome limitations caused by poor communication. For the first time, a book has come along that will help hardware engineers and firmware engineers work together to mitigate or eliminate problems that occur when hardware and firmware are not optimally compatible. Solving these issues will save time and money, getting products to market sooner to create more revenue. The principles and best practices presented in this book will prove to be a valuable resource for both hardware and firmware engineers. Topics include register layout, interrupts, timing and performance, aborts, and errors. Real world cases studies will help to solidify the principles and best practices with an aim towards cleaner designs, shorter schedules, and better implementation! Reduce product development delays with the best practices in this book Concepts apply to ASICs, ASSPs, SoCs, and FPGAs Real-world examples and case studies highlight the good and bad of design processes

This chapter discusses the interface that hardware provides for the embedded software. It discusses the registers and interrupts that provide that interface. But there is more; there are the human aspects of getting the hardware team and the embedded software team to collaborate on the project. Collaboration is needed during the design phase, the co-development phase, the integration phase, and the debugging phase and this chapter discusses those concepts. Several hardware design aspects are discussed that improve the quality of the product and software design aspects are discussed to help support hardware versions.

Accurate determination of the mobile position constitutes the basis of many new applications. This book provides a detailed account of wireless systems for positioning, signal processing, radio localization techniques (Time Difference Of Arrival), performances evaluation, and localization applications. The first section is dedicated to Satellite systems for positioning like GPS, GNSS. The second section addresses the localization applications using the wireless sensor networks. Some techniques are introduced for localization systems, especially for indoor positioning, such as Ultra Wide Band (UWB), WIFI. The last section is dedicated to Coupled GPS and other sensors. Some results of simulations, implementation and tests are given to help readers grasp the presented techniques. This is an ideal book for students, PhD students, academics and engineers in the field of Communication, localization
