Manuals and References

Lab Datasheets


There is no official textbook for this class. Instead, we focus on teaching via lecture material and the datasheets and reference manuals listed above. Given the rather diffuse nature of embedded systems, textbooks tend to be so general that they are not helpful for learning a specific set of hardware or so hyper-specific that the lessons learned cannot be extrapolated to other microprocessors or embedded platforms. While each of the following three textbooks has its strengths and weaknesses, they are good references for students looking for extra material to study.
