This first book is an introductory book that could be used at the college level with little or no prerequisites.
An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. This book is an introduction to embedded systems. This book employs many approaches to learning. It will not include an exhaustive recapitulation of the information in data sheets.
First, it begins with basic fundamentals, which allows the reader to solve new problems with new technology. Second, the book presents many detailed design examples. These examples illustrate the process of design. There are multiple structural components that assist learning. Checkpoints, with answers in the back, are short easy to answer questions providing immediate feedback while reading.
Simple homework, with answers to the odd questions on the web, provides more detailed learning opportunities. The book includes an index and a glossary so that information can be searched. The most important learning experiences in a class like this are of course the laboratories. Each chapter has suggested lab assignments. The next advantage is clarity. Compare the main program in Listing with the entire software system in Listing Because the details have been removed, the overall approach is easier to understand.
The next reason to break software into files is parallel development. As the software system grows it will be easier to divide up a software project into subtasks, and to recombine the modules into a complete system if the subtasks have separate files.
The last reason is upgrades. C file with the new version. If we plan appropriately, we should be able to make this upgrade without changes to the files SCI H and MY. ASCII characters Literals include numbers characters and strings Keywords are predefined Names are user-defined Punctuation marks Operators This chapter defines the basic building blocks of a C program.
Understanding the concepts in this chapter will help eliminate the syntax bugs that confuse even the veteran C programmer.
A simple syntax error can generate 's of obscure compiler errors. In this chapter we will introduce some of the syntax of the language. To understand the syntax of a C program, we divide it into tokens separated by white spaces and punctuation. Remember the white spaces include space, tab, carriage returns and line feeds.
A token may be a single character or a sequence of characters that form a single item. The first step of a compiler is to process the program into a list of tokens and punctuation marks.
And, finally, it creates object code that performs the intended operations. One or more white space can be used to separate tokens and or punctuation marks. Although ICC12 and Hiware do support floating point, this document will not cover it. The use of floating point requires a substantial about of program memory and execution time, therefore most applications should be implemented using integer math.
Consequently the period will not appear in numbers as described in this document.
For more information about numbers see the sections on decimals, octals, or hexadecimals in Chapter 3. The control characters can also be defined as constants. For more information about character literals see the section on characters in Chapter 3.
String literals are written as a sequence of ASCII characters bounded by quotation marks double quotes.
Thus, "ABC" describes a string of characters containing the first three letters of the alphabet in uppercase. For more information about string literals see the section on strings in Chapter 3. Keywords There are some predefined tokens, called keywords, that have specific meaning in C programs.
Keywords have predefined meanings. Did you notice that all of the keywords in C are lowercase? It is a good programming practice not to use these keywords for your variable or function names. Names We use names to identify our variables, functions, and macros.
Hiware names may be up to xxx characters long. Names must begin with a letter or underscore and the remaining characters must be either letters or digits. We can use a mixture of upper and lower case or the underscore character to create self-explaining symbols.
Names may be written with both upper and lowercase letters. The names are case sensitive. The purpose of the underscore is to avoid clashes with the assembler's reserved words.
So, as a matter of practice, we should not ordinarily name globals with leading underscores. Hiware labels will not include the underscore. These assembly names are important during the debugging stages. We can use the map file to get the absolute addresses for these labels, then use the debugger to observe and modify their contents.
Since the Imagecraft compiler adds its own underscore, names written with a leading underscore appear in the assembly file with two leading underscores. Developing a naming convention will avoid confusion. Possible ideas to consider include: 1. Start every variable name with its type. Start every local variable with "the" or "my" 3.
Start every global variable and function with associated file or module name. Punctuation Punctuation marks semicolons, colons, commas, apostrophes, quotation marks, braces, brackets, and parentheses are very important in C. It is one of the most frequent sources of errors for both the beginning and experienced programmers. Semicolons Semicolons are used as statement terminators. Strange and confusing syntax errors may be generated when you forget a semicolon, so this is one of the first things to check when trying to remove syntax errors.
Preprocessor directives do not end with a semicolon since they are not actually part of the C language proper.
Preprocessor directives begin in the first column with the and conclude at the end of the line. We assume in this example that Port C has been initialized as an input. Colons We can define a label using the colon.
Although C has a goto statement, I discourage its use.
