Fast and effective embedded systems design: Applying the ARM mbed

Editor's Note: Low-cost, easy-to-use development systems lower the threshold to entry into embedded systems development for engineers, regardless of their experience level. Among these compact development systems, ARM's mbed finds support for a diverse set of ARM-based MCUs from the leading semiconductor suppliers. Fast and Effective Embedded Systems Design: Applying the ARM mbed by Rob Toulson and Tim Wilmshurst, offers a clear, hands-on approach to embedded systems design principles with step-by-step directions on how to use the mbed development system to explore each key element of an embedded design. In Part 1 of this excerpt from the book, the introduced the mbed and its key components. In this Part 2, the authors offer a tutorial showing how to get started with the mbed. Elsevier is offering this and other engineering books at a 25% discount. To use this discount, cl...
