The arrival and popularity of multi-core processors has sparked a renewed interest in the development of parallel programs. Similarly, the availability of low-cost microprocessors and sensors has generated a great interest in embedded real-time programs. This book provides students and programmers whose backgrounds are in traditional sequential programming with the opportunity to expand their capabilities into parallel, embedded, real-time and distributed computing. It also addresses the theoretical foundation of real-time scheduling analysis, focusing on theory that is useful for actual applications. Written by award-winning educators at a level suitable for undergraduates and beginning graduate students, this book is the first truly entry-level textbook in the subject. Complete examples allow readers to understand the context in which a new concept is used, and enable them to build and run the examples, make changes, and observe the results.Read more

- Students will be able to apply the lessons learned with Ada to systems written in more complex languages
- Covers the use of real tools and operating systems including Cheddar, MaRTE OS, RTEMS, ORK and the PolyORB middleware
Reviews & endorsements
'By providing an extensive foundation for real-time and embedded systems programming, this book serves a much-needed role for both students and professional alike.' Patrick Rogers, AdaCoreSee more reviews
'… very well-written … Building Parallel, Embedded, and Real-Time Applications with Ada is one of those volumes that makes you think, especially about the hard problems (like real-time, multitasking and multicore) facing the firmware world today. I recommend it.' Jack G. Ganssle, embedded.com
