REALbasic Cross-Platform Application Development

REALbasic Cross-Platform program Developmenttreats REALbasic as a major improvement surroundings and is focused to builders with at the least programming event, yet who might or is probably not new to the REALbasic platform. Written by way of a author and developer with huge REALbasic event with enter and suggestions from actual software program, this ebook will help you make the most of the hot cross-platform skills of REALbasic and train you the way to create cross-platform functions.

Real-Time Systems Development

"Based at the educational and advertisement adventure of the writer, the booklet is a perfect better half to ultimate yr undergraduate techniques or MSc modules within the zone of real-time structures layout. The vast spectrum of matters handled will relief expert programmers confronted with their first real-time venture when extending scholars' wisdom and talents into a space of computing which has expanding relevance in a latest global of telecommunications and 'intelligent' apparatus utilizing embedded microcontrollers.

Interconnection Networks

The functionality of such a lot electronic structures this day is proscribed through their conversation or interconnection, now not via their common sense or reminiscence. As designers try to make extra effective use of scarce interconnection bandwidth, interconnection networks are rising as an almost common option to the system-level communique difficulties for contemporary electronic platforms.

Example text

Clearly, to participate you must understand some of the characteristics of both. Equal in importance to an understanding of integrated circuit technology is an understanding of the expected rates of technological change. While silicon fuels the rapid advance of hardware, new ideas in the organization of computers have improved price/performance. Two of the key ideas are exploiting parallelism in the processor, typically via pipelining, and exploiting locality of accesses to a memory hierarchy, typically via caches.

The masks used to make the chip are expensive, so the cost per chip is lower for higher volumes. 4. Engineering development costs are high and largely independent of volume; thus, the development cost per die is lower with high-volume parts. 5. High-volume parts usually have smaller die sizes than low-volume parts and therefore have higher yield per wafer. 5 The purpose of a section on fallacies and pitfalls, which will be found in every chapter, is to explain some commonly held misconceptions that you might encounter.

23 [2]Technology in which single chip that contains hundreds of thousands to millions of transistors. 24 [2] Single software command to a processor. 25 [2] Small, fast memory that acts as a buffer for the main memory. 26 [2] Specific interface that the hardware provides the low-level software. 27 [2] Substance that does not conduct electricity well but is the foundation of integrated circuits. 28 [2] Thin disk sliced from a silicon crystal ingot, which will be later divided into dies. 45 Using the categories in the list below, classify the following examples.
