About the Author

Jonathan Valvano has been teaching microcontrollers and embedded systems at the University of Texas at Austin for 33 years. This is his fourth college textbook. His previous three textbooks on the Freescale 9S12 have been used at over 18 universities around the world. He earned his BS and MS from MIT in 1977 in the fields of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. In 1981, he received his PhD from Harvard-MIT in the field of biomedical engineering. He has over 100 journal papers, 9 book chapters and 10 patents in the medical device research area. He is a cofounder of a successful medical device company, specializing in miniature and low-power cardiac measurements. The reason he has received numerous teaching awards at the University of Texas is because he and his students share a common interest at the very core of the education process: the students’ own success. “It is difficult to find a professor that tries harder to educate and inspire his students than Professor Valvano” – Robin Tsang. Valvano lives by this motto, “There are three steps to immortality: acknowledge your limitations, ask for forgiveness, and then do something special today to make the world a better place.”

Customer Reviews

Great for introduction to Embedded system.
James Wang
It doesn't show examples from start for finish, it only seams to show examples bits of assembly code.
Bill
This book makes the concepts really clear for beginners and is written in a friendly style.

the contents of book is undoubtablely great but Kindle Edition still has a lot of things to be improved. I'm so disappointed of Kindle program itself. I should have bought this book as paperback.

This was required for my class. It's a decent book. One major draw back is the code examples. Prof. Valvano (yeah, he was my professor) likes to use names for the bit values he pushes into registers which would be fine if he would also share the code where he #DEFINE the words with the value. Without this, almost half the code he's written in the book doesn't work. Other than that, it's a great jump into embedded systems.

But the software/firmware explanation is vague. We need to put extra effort or a good really good back ground. But the rest of the book is very good. I will buy also the next parts of this book. Because the next part looks like more detailed. The online projects are also helpful.

This is book is good for those who need to learn basic concept about programming and circuit in the micro controller field, I mean this book starts with a simple Digital design explanation, and then you will find a summary in electronic circuit but the most important is the way that this book explains the architecture of this micro controller and also explains the best way to program, I think this book is perfect for beginner and students who expects to know more about this specific micro controller architecture.

I find this book has more detail applied to it than some of the other books from this author, even though the others host more detailed analog information and interfacing detail perhaps...I just think that you really have to focus hard to understand what he is preaching. I find his teaching style quite dry and formatted in such a way that you have to force-feed yourself the material...It is not well defined direction wise, but it does contain the basics you need...I wish his teaching style was more mature and refined rather than dry, boring and lack of detail...

i had to buy this book because it is the textbook for quite a few of the Electrical Engineering courses at UT. this book is actually written by my professor, and it is fairly well written and very detailed about the ARM cortex-M3 microcontroller. all the instruction are thoroughly explained with examples. i have no complaint about it, and it is really useful.

Information is there but I found it difficult to understand it. The way things are explained is sometime confusing and frustrating. Mainly language used is not clear cut. It might suits litreture but not a technical book. I bought all three volume of this series and realized that many items are repeated in the later volumes those already were I, earlier volumes. This could have been a single book easily. Such approach is condemnable as this not only costs a reader more money to buy all 3 volumes but reader also looses valuable time. I would never buy any future book from the same author.

The best, all you need is to work with this book. Check the examples in internet and..you will understand all the fundamental things of programing embedded systems. The most importan you will know how it works inside of microcontrollers ... all.
