A Practical Approach to APIs, HALs and Drivers
Gain the knowledge and skills necessary to improve your embedded software and benefit from author Jacob Beningo’s more than 15 years developing reusable and portable software for resource-constrained microcontroller-based systems. You will explore APIs, HALs, and driver development among other topics to acquire a solid foundation for improving your own software. Reusable Firmware Development: A Practical Approach to APIs, HALs and Drivers not only explains critical concepts, but also provides a plethora of examples, exercises, and case studies on how to use and implement the concepts.
In “An API Standard for MCUs”, engineers will learn the fundamentals of APIs and HALs along with techniques for designing portable and reusable code. The book walks the reader through the creation of an API standard for controlling microcontroller peripherals that can be implemented on any microcontroller. Readers are treated to an API not just within the microcontroller but also a library of APIs for communicating with external devices.
