Digital Media Processing: DSP Algorithms Using C
Author:  Hazarathaiah Malepati

This book discusses the most current algorithms available that will maximize your programming keeping in mind the memory and real-time constraints of the architecture with which you are working. A wide range of algorithms is covered detailing basic and advanced multimedia implementations, along with, cryptography, compression, and data error correction. The general implementation concepts can be integrated into many architectures that you find yourself working with on a specific project. Analog Devices' BlackFin technology is used for examples throughout the book.

Embedded Hardware
Author:  Jack Ganssle, Tammy Noergaard, Fred Eady, Lewin Edwards, David J. Katz, Rick Gentile, Ken Arnold, Kamal Hyder, Bob Perrin

Circuit design using microcontrollers is both a science and an art. This book covers it all. It details all of the essential theory and facts to help an engineer design a robust embedded system. Processors, memory, and the hot topic of interconnects (I/O) are completely covered. Our authors bring a wealth of experience and ideas; this is a must-own book for any embedded designer.

Embedded Media Processing Textbook
Author:  David Katz and Rick Gentile

This book is the one-stop shop for the many engineers who need to understand what embedded media processors can do, and how to implement them. An embedded media processor combines the best aspects of a traditional microcontroller and a DSP for use in a multimedia product. As the demand grows for smaller, faster, multifunction, portable embedded products, such as video-enabled cellphones and PDA's that play music or games, EMPs become more popular. As a result, an increasing number of engineers need to migrate from using multiprocessor methods to using EMPs in their designs.

Embedded Signal Processing with the Micro Signal Architecture
Author:  Woon-Seng Gan, Sen M. Kuo

This is a real-time digital signal processing textbook using the latest embedded Blackfin processor. A portion of the text is dedicated to general real-time signal processing principles. The remaining text provides an overview of the Blackfin processor, its programming, applications, and hands-on exercises for users. With all the practical examples given to expedite the learning development of Blackfin processors, the textbook doubles as a ready-to-use user's guide.

Embedded Software
Author:  Jean J. Labrosse, Jack Ganssle, Robert Oshana, Colin Walls, Keith E. Curtis, Jason Andrews, David J. Katz, Rick Gentile, Kamal Hyder, Bob Perrin

Embedded software is present everywhere from a garage door opener to implanted medical devices to multicore computer systems. This book covers the development and testing of embedded software from many different angles and using different programming languages. Optimization of code, and the testing of that code, are detailed to enable readers to create the best solutions on-time and on-budget. Bringing together the work of leading experts in the field, this a comprehensive reference that every embedded developer will need!

Embedded Systems
Author:  Jack Ganssle

Famed author Jack Ganssle has selected the very best embedded systems design material from the Newnes portfolio and compiled into this volume. The result is a book covering the gamut of embedded design, from hardware to software to integrated embedded systems, with a strong pragmatic emphasis. In addition to specific design techniques and practices, this book also discusses various approaches to solving embedded design problems and how to successfully apply theory to actual design tasks. The material has been selected for its timelessness as well as for its relevance to contemporary embedded design issues. This book will be an essential working reference for anyone involved in embedded system design!

Mixed Signal and DSP Design Techniques

Edited by Walt Kester (Newnes, 2003), covers sampled data systems, choosing A-to-D and D-to-A converters for DSP applications, fast Fourier transforms, digital filters, selecting DSP hardware, interfacing to DSP chips, and hardware design techniques. This book explains signal processing hardware, how it works, how to interface to it, and how to design it and debug it. Master the art and science of mixed-signal and DSP design with this informative and practical guide.
