Express Logic, Inc. and MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NasdaqGS: MIPS) published a new textbook on real-time software development. The book, Real-Time Embedded Multithreading: Using ThreadX and MIPS, covers the use of an RTOS and offers examples of the use of application threads to manage real-time programming on MIPS-Based platforms. The book was written by Edward L. Lamie, PhD, professor emeritus and former Computer Science Department Chair at California State University, Stanislaus.
Real-Time Embedded Multithreading contains the fundamentals of developing real-time operating systems and multithreading with all the new functionality of ThreadX Version 5. This MIPS edition covers all the new ThreadX 5 features including Real-Time Event-Chaining, Run-Time Performance Metrics, and Run-Time Statck Analysis as specified for MIPS. ThreadX has been deployed in approximately 500 million devices worldwide including cell phones, digital cameras, and laser printers. General concepts and terminology are detailed along with problem solving of common pitfalls. The features and services of ThreadX are reviewed. The book is technology agnostic and applicable to all types of microprocessors.
