Format: Hardcover
The code on the CD itself is well worth the money! I like the author's apporach of balancing the real time theory and its application. Having worked with C++ and real time application in the past 10 years, this book tought me something that I didn't learn from anywhere else (RMA, VxWorks, Video driver...). For any serious hard real time application developers, this book is highly recommended!

Charles River Media is always a guarantee.

One of the rare works on the 'eliterian' VxWorks RTOS. The teaching style from the University of Colorado a real gem !

Source code examples cover most of the VxWorks API's.

General theory of RTOS's combined with performace issues are the introducing chapters.

Digital control, robotics and digital video and audio applications are dedicated and extremely clear chapters of this work.

Real world examples, full of code and videoclips related to the subjects discussed in the book.
