Embedded internet and internet appliances are the focus of great attention in the computing industry, as they are seen as the future of computing. The design of such devices presents many technical challenges. This book is the first guide available that describes how to design internet access and communications capabilities into embedded systems. It takes an integrated hardware/software approach using the Java programming language and industry-standard microcontrollers. Numerous illustrations and code examples enliven the text. This book shows how to build various sensors and control devices that connect to the TINI interfaces, explains how to write programs that control them in Java, and then ties them all together in practical applications. Included is a discussion on how these technologies work, where to get detailed specifications, and ideas for the reader to pursue beyond the book. Accompanying companion website includes Java source code for all the applications described in the book.

This book was and easy read. It is organized to get you up-and-running with the TINI microcontroller board by Dallas Semiconductor in no time. This board has Local Area Network (LAN) and communications ports built-in so it can act as a mini HTTP, FTP and Telnet server. The authors describe how to set-up a JAVA application developement system for the TINI board (or JAVA programming in general)under Windows and Linux. The book is written for someone who is familiar with JAVA to use the web-server aspects if TINI, but the programs presented in the book are explained in great detail so that any reader can easily understand the programs' flow and purpose. The last half of the book describes the many ways that the real-world can be connected to the TINI board. These sections require some electronics knowledge to connect the hardware, but the software to use the hardware is explained in an easy-to-understand format and the circuits are simple and easy to expand. This book is a great Internet... read more
Designing Embedded Internet Devices
By A Customer - March 25, 2004
The very thought of building a project using an embedded microprocessor device seems daunting, let alone putting it on the internet! Designing Embedded Internet Devices is a veritable cookbook for using the wonderful TINI single-board computer, programmed using Java, for a host of tasks. Imagine outfitting a home with gizmos to control lights, the temperature, even feeding the cat, all networked together. Imagine being able to log into your home net, and feed the cat from the other side of the world! The TINI board is cheap (around $50) and easy enough to use to do all these and more, and the Java development tools are free. The book's text, drawings and photos are clear enough that even with modest experience in programming and electronic hardware design, you could be creating embedded devices in no time. If you ever thought it would be cool to take programming and your computer to the next level, this book is a must read!

This book is an excellent book for anyone interested in microcontrollers. I had never used JAVA before but with the help of an introduction to java book I was able to easily follow the projects. This is the perfect book for the beginner/intermediate user of microcontrollers and the projects in this book are simple to follow and can be easily expanded for any situation.
THE METHODOLOGY. In order to estimate the latent demand for aesthetic equipment on a worldwide basis, I used a multi-stage approach. Before applying the approach, one needs a basic theory from which ...
